Publisher:
Timely
Grade:
CGC G+: 2.5
One of the greatest Golden Age keys, this issue features the origin and first appearance of the most popular patriotic hero: Captain America! The issue also features the 1st appearance of Cap's tragic sidekick Bucky, as well as his nemesis, The Red Skull! Thrill to the adventures of America's greatest hero as told by the character's creators, Joe Simon and Jack Kirby. The cover sports one of the greatest images of the Golden Age: Captain America socking Hitler in the jaw. Cap 1 is the first appearance of Hitler on a comic book cover.

The premieres of the Captain America and Avengers movies have catapulted Captain America's popularity into the stratosphere. His star is on the rise. The demand for Captain America Comics 1 has grown exponentially over the last two years. Records are constantly being set and broken. With two more Cap and Avengers movies scheduled the demand will grow and grow.

The aggressive cover image, and the dynamic Simon & Kirby art within, got pulses pounding, gave rise to one of comics' first massive word-of-mouth successes and provided Timely with their first megastar. This titanic debut appearance is among the most revered comics of the Golden Age, with collectors fighting over every available copy. Marvel's savvy marketing and non-stop movie releases have seen Cap enjoying a resurgence in interest of late, and investors and collectors have been clamoring for this key. This book has smashed sales records in recent auctions. This copy is a perfect entry-level key for collectors wanting the best possible deals for their hard-earned dollar, and this book is guaranteed to once again defy expectations.
