Before my three-day weekend [in Feb. 2007], a very quick breakdown, with issue-by-issue grades, for the volume in the subject line.
126 The Fate of the Falcon June 1970 B- More like a try-out for a Falcon ongoing series. 125 Captured in Viet-Nam! May 1970 C So disappointing for something trying to be so timely. 124 Mission: Stop the Cyborg! April 1970 C Eh. 123 Suprema, the Deadliest of the… March 1970 B+ Kind of silly, but Gene Colan makes it look so good. 122 The Sting of the Scorpion Feb. 1970 B- The intention being to show that Cap can take down supervillains too (as long as the Scorpion isn't even trying). 121 The Coming of the Man-Brute Jan. 1970 A- Suprisingly satisfying ending to a slugfest issue -- but is that an actual Golden Age villain or a retcon? 120 Crack-Up on Campus Dec. 1969 B Modok seriously has nothing better to do than be behind campus unrest? 119 Now Falls the Skull Nov. 1969 C What a fizzled ending! 118 The Falcon Fights on Oct. 1969 B Still looking good here... 117 The Coming of the Falcon Sept. 1969 B A bit of a detour, but the Skull/Cap clash still has some momentum 116 Far Worse Than Death Aug. 1969 A- A clever and fun premise, getting to see the "Skull" doing exciting stuff! 115 Now Begins the Nightmare! July 1969 A+ Man, could Lee write exciting cliffhangers! 114 The Man behind the Mask! June 1969 C+ 113 The Strange Death of Captain America C- 112 Lest We Forget! April 1969 B- The last you see of Kirby on this title for awhile. 111 Tomorrow You Live Tonight I Die! A+ Steranko finally hits his stride, only to jump ship after this issue. 110 No Longer Alone! Feb. 1969 C+ 109 The Hero That Was! Jan. 1969 C 108 The Snares of the Trapster! Dec. 1968 A- This issue has everything but a satisfying explanation at the end. A real classic Cap adventure. And has the Trapster ever been treated more seriously? 107 If The Past Be Not Dead … Nov. 1968 B+ 106 Cap Goes Wild Oct. 1968 B+ 105 In the Name of Batroc! Sept. 1968 B- 104 Slave of the Skull! Aug. 1968 A+ 103 The Weakest Link! July 1968 A
