Captain America & the Falcon #205

August 18, 2012

Jack Kirby
January 1977
**
One year into his Cap run, Kirby’s action sequences rattle the reader’s teeth as much as ever, but they lack the gonzo creativity that drives his best ’70s work. Here, CA & Falc brawl in the streets w/ an energy being from the far future. His eyes crackle w/ Kirby dots but he’s just a big bruiser.

Captain America & the Falcon #204

August 17, 2012

Jack Kirby
December 1976
****
More “Theater of the Weird”, as Kirby puts it. At SHIELD’s psych ward, brainwashed Falcon faces a walking cadaver motivated by a disembodied intelligence. But the real drama is elsewhere, as Sharon Carter insists Cap hang up his shield. Their scenes vividly depict a couple arguing past each other.
