In honor of the seventy-fifth anniversary of Captain America this December, we’ll be doing a countdown next month of the 75 Greatest Captain America Stories Ever Told!
Captain America has starred in a bunch of a great stories, from one-shot issues to multi-issue stories to, well, sagas. So here you will be casting your vote for who you feel are the greatest Captain America stories!
You folks all vote in the comments section here up until 11:59 Pacific time, November 30th. I’ll tabulate all the votes and I’ll begin a countdown of the top 75 beginning sometime in early December.
Okay, here are the guidelines!
1. Vote in the comments section below, making sure to include that classic word “ACBC” somewhere in your comment so your vote will be marked invisible.
2. Vote for your TEN favorite Captain America stories (from comic books only). They can be single issue stories. They can be longer storylines. It’s all about to you.
3. Rank your ten stories from #1 (what you think is the greatest story) to #10 (what you think is the 10th greatest). I’d prefer it if you actually numbered your entry, #1-10. It’s easier for me to count. On that note, please also avoid listing them like this “1) 2) 3) 4),” because 8 with a ) after it transforms into a smiley face in the comments section (this one 8) ). Just plain ol’ “1. 2. 3.” works best. Really, just use this template:
TEN GREATEST CAPTAIN AMERICA STORIES
4. Your top choice will be given 10 points, your second choice 9, etc.
5. Only stories where Captain America is a lead or a co-lead character count. In other words, don’t vote for Avengers stories where Cap is just a member of the team, like Korvac Saga or Kree Skrull War, but you CAN vote for Avengers stories which are basically Cap solo stories just in the pages of Avengers. Like Avengers #4. Just use your own common sense. I think I can trust that you can tell a story meant as a “Captain America” story apart from a story where Cap is just a member of the Avengers. Marvel Team-Up or Marvel Two-in-One stories featuring Cap count. Cap stories in Marvel Fanfare or Marvel Comics Presents count.
6. Runs are not stories. To wit, you can’t pick, say, Mark Waid and Ron Garney’s run and call it a story. It is not. It contains a number of different stories.
7. Mini-series count as one story. In the case of anthologies, each story inside the anthology is considered an independent story.
8. Make sure to include ACBC in your ballot.
9. If you have questions and or requests for clarification, feel free to ask them in the comments section below. I’ll make various decisions as necessary.
Remember, please include the following word: ACBC – on your ballot. It will make it so your ballot appears invisible to other readers, so only I can read it (and count your vote secretly).
Most importantly, have fun!
Now vote! 🙂
