CAPTAIN AMERICA # 178! Original 1974 Cover Art by John Romita Sr.! Marvel Comics!

From the very memorable mid-70s era of CAPTAIN AMERICA, here is the captivatin' cover for CAP # 178! During this period (post-Watergate), a disillusioned Steve Rogers had forsaken his Cap identity, adopting the short-lived superhero guise of The Nomad! As only Marvel would dare, Steve stayed in his Nomad ID for almost a year, as other(less fortunate) souls tried and vied for the star-spangled starring role! This cover is another great one from John Romita, Sr.(with Ron Wilson and Frank Giacoia)! How could you not buy this issue, upon catching sight of that incredible cover scene? Then again, I somehow missed this ish originally, snagging it about 2 years later as a back issue! Click to enlarge!
