Captain America special edition #2 - Jim Steranko cover reprint & reprints

Captain America special edition v1 #2, 1980 - Like the previous issue, this edition showcases Jim Steranko's work for Marvel during the 1960s. In addition to Captain America #113, a Nick Fury story from Strange Tales #159 and the artist's only romance tale from Our Love Story #5 are also included. Finally, a Nick Fury parody by Frank Springer rounds out the book. While these reprints are fine, I suggest hunting down the originals. See today's posts or more SterankoCaptain America or Captain America Special Edition issues. See also this blog's Jim Steranko checklist or Top 10 Steranko comics.

  1. I think the Not Brand Echh spoof was used because it's shorter than the original Steranko story.
    It's just "filler" (and it is pretty well done!)
    Appropriately enough, Springer followed Steranko on the Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. book.
