Now that the monthly solicitations have been shared from the Marvel Comics side of the fence, its time to share the news about one of the exciting events happening in a few months – I’m speaking of course of the 700th issue of that star-spangled Avenger Captain America. Check out the press release below.
The Press Release:
This spring, OUT OF TIME will culminate with the release of CAPTAIN AMERICA’s milestone 700th issue, concluding the arc in an oversized story from creators Mark Waid and Chris Samnee!
Frozen in time, awakened in a decimated future and once again a man out of his era, there is only one way for Steve Rogers to restore order and rebuild civilization—and that’s to rule it as King Captain America!
“No dream, no hoax, no lie, this IS Cap and this IS happening!” said SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “Guest-starring the Thing and the Hulk (or as much as is left of them), it’s a celebration of 700 issues of star-spangled adventure! Plus, Mark Waid delivers an untold tale from Captain America’s past, featuring the classic artwork of Jack Kirby!” Continue reading Marvel’s Captain America Reaches a Milestone With 700th Issue!→
“When Captain America throws his mighty shield!!!!!” Oh wait, I’ve used that one a couple of times before already so I apologize. Still, its a great rallying song to let you readers know that ABC Studios will be presenting a one-hour special called “Marvel’s Captain America: 75 Heroic Years” and its going to air right before the second season debut of “Agent Carter”. I searched for a classic Jack Kirby rendition of Cap for this posting and snagged the whole press piece from Marvel.com for your edification but I will return at the close to talk a little bit more. Check it out.
The Press Release: From his first appearance in 1941 through the 75 years that would follow, Captain America has been one of–if not the most–influential comic book characters ever to be created. Take a look back at the history of this beloved Marvel character and see how his influence continues to have impact today in the original special, “Marvel’s Captain America: 75 Heroic Years,” airing Tuesday, January 19 (8:00-9:00 PM ET) on the ABC Television Network.

If you are a fan of what’s been going on in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, then I say that its high time to pay a little mind to the smaller screen in your home (but if you are like me that is probably some kind of giant LCD screen so not too small in theory). That being said check out this new animated offering that features “Earth’s Mightiest Heroes” in “Avengers Assemble”. The poster and premise are below.
“When Captain America throws his mighty shield! All those who chose to oppose his shield must yield! If he’s led to a fight and a duel is due then the red and the white and the blue will come through when Captain America throws his mighty shield!!!!!
Such were the words of the song from the “Marvel Super-Heroes” cartoon show that aired way back in 1966 but I doubt that many of you would remember that depending on your actual vintage. Today is the day that “Captain America: The First Avenger” opens up to the masses and after seeing how good “Thor” was and having enjoyed both “Iron Man” and “The Incredible Hulk” I have very high hopes for what we shall get with Cap.
