Giant-Size Captain America #1 Review by (February 21, 2013)
Comments: In 1975-76, Marvel published “Giant-Size” special issues for many of their major characters. Most of these contained all-new (or mostly new) material, with one title becoming an instant classic, GIANT-SIZE X-MEN #1 which introduced the new line-up, including Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Storm, and Colossus. Some of these, though, were all-reprint issues, including Thor, Iron Man, and Captain America. The stories in the Cap Giant are the first five stories from Cap’s original solo series in TALES OF SUSPENSE.
