Captain America #221 (May 1978)

We were encouraged, when writing brief stories to fit in the back of Marvel comics, to find cracks and crevices between storylines that could be filled in. Which is how “The Comic of Captain Avenger,” meant to take place between The Avengers #14 and #15, came about. So I was writing in 1978 about an event which supposedly took place back in 1965.

The five-page story, which starred Rick Jones and all of the mid-’60s Avengers fighting against Baron Zemo, was drawn by Steve Leialoha (penciller) and Al Gordon (inker).
