Captain America #697

   How great is this comic?

   Well... this issue of Captain America takes a classic (but usually underrated) villain, adds in an incredibly well-worn plot (see: "The Most Dangerous Game," a story written by Richard Connell in 1924), and turns in an amazing adventure, loaded with shocks and surprises.

   It's a credit to writer Mark Waid and artist Chris Samnee that they can walk such well-trod ground and craft a story that delights at every turn.

   And even more amazing - we discover the one thing (perhaps the only thing) that Cap fears!

   If you're a comics fan, you should be reading this series. It's wonderful!
