Ok. I do a podcast and on this podcast we have a book of the month....where we choose a trade paperback that is sold at a discount at our sponsor's website.

Well...July is my turn to pick the next book...and I've decided I'm going to select a Captain America book (mostly because of the movie...but also because we haven't done a marvel TPB in a while). However...looking for some recommendations. Not too familiar with what's in print that was a good Cap Story other than Brubaker's awesome run.

And while I know Brubaker's run has been amazing...I kind of want something by someone else (or at least...leave it as a last resort if I can't find something else).

Now the board has NEVER steered me wrong with book recommendations....so I ask...what are some Good Captain America Trades?

I had a lot of fun with the Bloodstone Saga as a kid but I have a feeling it hasn't aged well

I thought the concept was better than the actual execution, tbh.

And Kyle Baker was such a weird choice for artist regarding the subject matter.

Has John Ney Rieber & John Cassaday's run aged well? I remember loving the art but can't remember the story other than it was a response to 9/11.

The easy and topical answer is anything Brubaker, but I want to suggest something retro. Captain America War and Remembrance by Roger Stern and John Byrne. Fantastic stuff that still holds up. Commander Rogers is a very different man after having been shot and reliving his most challenging moments twice. He is. So this offers a side of Cap that a lot of current readers will never have seen before.

I just re-read it recently. Still good.
