Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
Today we look at the striking opening of Ed Brubaker’s lauded run on Captain America…
Captain America #1 opens with the Red Skull haggling with a Russian named Lukin over various super-weapons that Lukin is selling off after taking control of an old secret Soviet super agency. The Skull sees one of Lukin’s operatives, and notes that he would be VERY interested in having this fellow, but Lukin counters that something like that would require a trade for the Cosmic Cube. Skull replies that he does not have it.
Later, we see Captain America trying to track down the Skull and realize that the Skull has other plans…but so does Lukin….
What a great opening by Brubaker and Epting!
