    The 1960s were the Silver Age, not the Bronze Age.

Good catch. My bad.

    I'm not really sure what the issue is with it not being in continuity. A good story, which you said it was, is a good story right?

True. "Uplifting" is good but the story was just okay. However, Marvel Comics stories for me is all about the continuity. Even moreso than DC (hence the Doomsday Clock and Heroes in Crisis disasters). So, if it's not about the shared universe experience then it would have to be a GREAT story (w/complimentary art, preferably better than) to be worth (repeatedly) investing any time and/or money. There are many other and better stories and even the untested ones might be worth sampling that reviews suggest are better than okay. Will you stick with this book?

    And Marvel was pretty up front about this. The solicitation even said "Andrew Aydin, pens a tale of Captain America during the Civil Rights movement."

    I think, and don't quote me on this, that they said they wanted to celebrate it in the time at the beginning.

    Next week one story will take place in the 70s, then the 80s in May, and so on.

    Two in continuities and one one per issue.

Totally missed that info. Thanks! Good to know. Hmm... if it's confirmed only 2/3 616 then there's only 66% of me pulling it - so'll have to play closer attention to solicits here.

    I really liked this Cap story, and liked that it didn't take an easy route.


      Spidey story: Revisiting Crusher. Amazing Spider-man #271 is a fondly remembered revisiting of the iconic throwaway character Hogan. [According to his wikia page he's had 23/13 other appearances - but has any of them been more entertaining? AND when the heck was his real name Joseph given?] So, it actually started out arrghworthy, with his hate-fueled personality, but it turned into a clever twist revealed when Doc Voodoo shows up to explain the sitch. Whew. BUT. THEN. Arrgh! It looks like they made Dr.Druid a supervillain and gave him an Revolving Door unexplained return from his troubled and odd post-death villainy on Weirdworld. Poor Avenger.


    I agree 100% here. I hated it at first, then got into t by the end.

    If you haven't read Tangled Web #14 (thank you internet), it was a cool story. It is about the lead up, and how Crusher loved wrestling, and was throwing everything he could into saving a failing league (or whatever).

TW#14. THANKS for that heads up!!
