Captain America Annual #3

August 4, 2012

Jack Kirby
January 1976
Kirby returns to Marvel w/ a Cap Annual. It captures excellently his expressionistic, mature style: slick Kirbytech, crackling energy, hideous monsters, rugged bodies, a pace set by the rhythm of a 2×3 grid that explodes into awesome splashes! The plot, more old-fashioned, pays homage to 1950s B-movie sci-fi, as Cap & a farmer get caught btw a megalomaniac energy parasite & hunters on a UFO.
