    1. Steve Gerber Mike Friedrich Tony Isabella John David Warner Sal Buscema Herb Trimpe Alan Weiss Frank Robbins

      Steve Gerber graduated from the University of Missouri with a degree in communications and took a job in advertising To keep himself sane, he wrote bizarre short stories such as Elves Against Hitler, Conversion in a Terminal Subway, and And the Birds Hummed Dirges He noticed acquaintance Roy Thomas working at Marvel, and Thomas sent him Marvel s standard writing test, dialoguing Daredevil art He was soon made a regular on Daredevil and Sub Mariner, and the newly created Man Thing, the latter of which pegged him as having a strong personal style intellectual, introspective, and literary In one issue, he introduced an anthropomorphic duck into a horror fantasy, because he wanted something weird and incongruous, and Thomas made the character, named for Gerber s childhood friend Howard, fall to his apparent death in the following issue Fans were outraged, and the character was revived in a new and deeply personal series Gerber said in interview that the joke of Howard the Duck is that there is no joke The series was existential and dealt with the necessities of life, such as finding employment to pay the rent Such unusual fare for comicbooks also informed his writing on The Defenders Gerber eventually lost a lawsuit for control of the character when he was defending the artist s delayed paychecks for the series.

    1. Better than earlier issues, but Steve Englehart's plots often sound better in theory than they read in reality. He's also saddled with some horrible art during his issues, which changes to surreal art when Frank Robbins comes on board.


    2. I used to be a fan of the superheroes who were on the fringe of the main stage of the Marvel Universe--Ghost Rider, Moon Knight, Werewolf By Night, Dr. Strange, Master of Kung Fu, Daredevil, Silver Surfer, Alpha Flight, etc.--& if I did throw my spotlight onto center stage, you would find it fall on Spider-Man & the X-Men. I wasn't a Captain America fan. This would come later.The 1st Captain America comics I bought of the 7-11 spinner racks as a kid were the Kirby "Madbomb" story arc. I [...]


    3. While still some fun moments, a rare step back in the '70s Marvel Comics prime. A big thing was when Captain America renounced being Captain America and became the Nomad, a "big moment" as Captain America goes awayd then he decides to go back to being a "new" Captain America.A comparison came to mind with the cynically received "Death of Superman" and "Return of Superman", as the death was so permanent until a couple of years later. But at least those were action stories. There is so much talkin [...]


    4. Much like Chris Claremont, Steve Englehart is a decent comics writer/storyteller but his dialogue is maddening. It's even below the level of bad radio drama dialogue -- here, everyone explains their every action, no matter how trivial. Even "secret plans" are revealed before they're even set into motion.But other than that, this collection was a lot of fun to read.The Nomad plotline seemed unneccessary given the brevity of it all (four issuses, or so), but was still interesting.As was the slight [...]


    5. Pretty good. The last few issues are starting to veer into territory I'm not quite fond of. (Cap seems to be becoming a bit more aggressive, perhaps to "fit the times.")This book ends on a big cliffhanger, which is just how they happened to be collected.
