Happy 70th Anniversary Captain America!

It’s Cap’s 70th anniversary and Marvel’s preparing a major birthday bash for our favorite patriot, featuring five specials with Cap’s greatest allies (minus Bucky) and his greatest villains (minus Red Skull, Zemo, Strucker…okay, maybe not his greatest villains…). Well at least we got Batroc, right?

Cover by GREG TOCCHINI

Peggy Carter. She’s enigmatic and beautiful, a woman with a mission. She’s a pistol… with a pistol. She’s all-American, just like Cap. She‘s prepared to sacrifice all, just like Cap. And she’s ready to double cross him if she has to, when she has to. Disguises and despair, guns and glory. It’s a tale of amour and honor in WWII France. She’s Cap’s first love and she’s going to make a lasting impression… even if it kills him!

Batroc: Traceur shows why and takes you every step of the road he walks. It’s time to meet the man behind the greatest moustache in the Marvel
