Set Description

From 2004 to 2011, Captain America was under the helm of writer Ed Brubaker what would truly be one of the best runs on the book in years. During that time, the series has earned numerous awards and truly brought Captain America into the modern era for today’s readers. The journey of Captain America during this time is a long and wide spanning story that brought back Bucky, ‘killed’ Cap, have a new Cap, bring back Cap and even manage to end with a sense of urgency for what lies ahead. Outside the comics, Captain America gained renewed interest thanks to the controversy it caused, from bringing back a character whose death was originally “sacred” to “killing” the title character, and giving a new Cap a new costume. It was in 2011 when the co-creator of Captain America, Joe Simon passed away. It was fortunate that he could see the character rise to new levels of popularity and see the creation of a successful feature film. Please enjoy checking out what is in my opinion, the best run in years.

In putting this run together, I have been extremely lucky and I’m very grateful to a lot of people. They know who they are, and I say Thank You. This collection simply could not be what it is without having had a lot of help in putting in together from fellow enthusiasts and collectors to CGC Signature Series witnesses and staff.

A significant portion of this collection is graded under the Signature Series label, and another BIG thanks goes out to all the various creators who were willing to sign my books, allowing my collection of this series to be a true one of a kind. Signatures throughout the series include: Ed Brubaker, Steve Epting, Michael Lark, Mike Perkins, Butch Guice, Marko Djurdevic, Frank D'armata, Alex Ross, Stan Lee, Joe Simon, and others. I've been very fortunate to have met many of the people who have worked on the book too and I have to thank them for chatting with me, signing my many books and in some cases, sketching for me too!

To date, I have managed to acquire three 9.9 graded books as well as three 9.6s. When starting this set, I originally wanted strict 9.8s and for a long time I was able to maintain it. When it came down to it, I would rather have a 9.6 in my collection than not have the book at all. All things considered in the end, I managed to have 134 books out of 137 be 9.8 or better.

I've taken the opportunity to use the back cover image slot to showcase various parts of my Cap collection which have relevance to the particular issue. This ranges from issues which I have managed to have signed by contributors, to wraparound cover art, sketches or other CGC graded books or instances where the back cover is something other than an advertisement.

Please note that for a majority of the issues in my set, I have included descriptions of the issues as well as notes to most issues. There are SPOILERS throughout.
