Captain America v1 #250, 1980 - In one of the most thought-provoking issues of the series, Captain America is approached to be a candidate for President of the United States. John Byrne brilliantly uses a political campaign pin for the cover, but his story artwork is even better. Atypically, most pages comprise of Cap's conversations with politicos, neighbors and fellow Avengers and his own musings. The credits (which don't appear until page 8) are cleverly framed within a splash of a front page newspaper article. Byrne preserve the story's nuances and complexities with exceptional pacing and layouts. This is number 6 of 15 Captain America issues with Byrne art and/or covers. This issue is also included in this Byrne gallery. Find >this issue or more >Byrne or >Captain America issues on ebay.
