Vol 2: November 1996 – November 1997
This is an abomination. This is the worst art (Rob Liefeld) ever to be seen in a Captain America comic. I hear tell that Marvel cancelled Captain America vol. 1 in order to let Rob Liefeld take over the character. I can’t imagine a character more mismatched for Liefeld’s… talents. This is a travesty. I think Liefeld leaves this series a few issues in. I will check those out, but not this. Not this….

Captain America finds himself back on Earth in the middle of Japan. He’s confused by the amount of excessive veneration he receives but puts it aside to save innocent lives from a bombing plot.

From the ruins of the World Trade Center to the horrors of a small town shaken by terrorism, this is one double-sized first issue you’ll never forget – and neither will Marvel’s star-spangled champion. Said Rieber: “The man’s a soldier: fierce, focused, and absolutely dedicated to the American dream.” He fights for the people – we, the people….

Find out in the shocking twist-ending that will have everybody in the industry talking!
Vol 6: September 2011 – December 2012
Steve Rogers is back as Captain America. With Ed Brubaker and Steve McNiven on board, there’s no reason you shouldn’t pick this issue up. It’s also a great jumping on point for new readers. Loads of action along with great art to make readers happy.
