Issue #138 begins John Romita, Sr.’s run on Captain America as Gene Colan sails off into the sunset. Colan’s art is undeniably good, but I don’t feel like he ever gave his best to Cap. Actually, it’s probably because he’s better suited to shadowy characters like Daredevil. Conversely, Romita’s clean-cut style is perfect for Cap.
The story is self-contained, except that the Spider-Man element continues from last issue. And we of course love Romita Sr.’s Spider-Man.
Creators: Stan Lee, John Romita Sr
