Captain America v1 #253, 1981 - An urgent telegram beckons Steve Rogers back to England. Reuniting with his Invaders comrades, Union Jack and Spitfire, he's informed that their foe Baron Blood may be on the loose. John Byrne's creepy cover seems just as appropriate for a horror comic. There's a faint texture that suggests dust or fogginess. Inside, the drawings are more straightforward. The British manor house setting conveys tradition, history and mystery all at once. Byrne's splash pages include a Jack the Ripper-type scene at the story's beginning and a climactic confrontation at the end. This is number 9 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.
