CAPTAIN AMERICA # 217! Nick Fury! Falcon! 1977 Marvel Comics Original Cover Art!

Behold the great original cover art to CAPTAIN AMERICA # 217, direct from 1977! Drawn by "Big" John Buscema, this bold cover depicts Cap about to face off against some of his closest pals, such as Nick Fury and the Falcon! Say it ain't so!  This CAP ish was produced during a sorta "spinning our wheels" period, as Jack Kirby's long return engagement (22 issues, two annuals, and an oversized treasury edition!) on the book had ended, and a new creative team and direction was being furiously sought out! The previous issue was even a reprint (note the "All New!" blurb on this cover), to give the new creative team a chance to get up and running and on their way! Click to enlarge!

Nick Fury's eye patch is on the wrong eye.
