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.
