*Marvel: As we’ve discussed many times recently, the lifting of the distribution embargo meant that the divided titles such as Tales of Suspense could ‘fission’ into independent series starring each character – and so it was with Captain America, who took over Tales of Suspense’s numbering with issue #100, making it his first solo issue of the Silver Age! While following the dangling plot threads from TOS #99, flashbacks of Cap’s history skilfully brought new readers up to speed, and from there he was launched onto adventures anew, initially drawn by his co-creator Jack Kirby, then by Romita, Colan and a promising young lad named Jim Steranko! This selection of Cap’s Silver Age series ranges from that debut issue, #100 (GD+ £55; respectable copy, but one small tear in cover’s upper edge) through to #129, plus his first Annual. Along the way, the Star-Spangled Avenger meets and/or clashes with the Red Skull, Batroc Ze Leaper, Trapster, the Hulk (in the glorious Steranko-illustrated #110, depicted here FN/VF £55) the voluptuous Madame Hydra (making her debut in #111), the Falcon, the Scorpion, Suprema, Satan’s Angels and more! Approximately thirty new entries for our inventory.
