  Sweet Fancy Moses! This was a long frickin' comic. Well intentioned, it seemed to ring a bit hollow at the end. Maybe it was just a "Quantam Leap" of faith.

  Yeah, the ending was a little corny, but the ride was awesome. And the pin-ups at the end were a blast, too. I read somewhere that Kirby lost it and was just going through the motions when he returned to Marvel, but I ain't seeing any signs of it.

  This wasn't half bad. Art was erratic in places, maybe due to different inkers.

  I think it would have benefit from being cut down a little or even a lot!

  Maybe a bit too long, but definitely also one of the best Kirby-issues in the 1970's.

  "And so Captain America finds himself leaping from life to life, striving to put right what once went wrong, and hoping each time that his next leap will be the leap home…”
Wasn't bad, but let's face it, Kirby hasn't made it out of the 60s yet. I could have seen this being used as one of Cap's first Silver Age stories to help readers get to know him, and it would have fit in much better.
When it started out with defeating the Nazis and then creating the flag I was expecting this to be so much worse than it was, and while it still is largely sanitized and oversimplified, at the very least they did try to show some of the darker parts of America's past.

  The MU link appears to be broken. The issue also does not appear in the list of titles in the MU app.

  Nevermind. I see now rhat the app lists it under a different title. It is Captain America's Bicentennial Battles.

  Oh boy. This was long, pointless and boring. What a waste.

And why couldn't Cap simply remove his glove?
