Back again with yet another goodie from my own overstuffed original art collection! This time, it's a famous page from the classic CAPTAIN AMERICA #168, from 1973! Illustrated by Sal Buscema and George Roussos, this page featured not only an imperiled Cap, but also his swingin' 70s partner, the fabulous Falcon! They've paired to take on the Phoenix, a forgettable (but very well-designed) super-foe who just happened to be the son of Baron Zemo! This indelible issue is also remembered as the one picked to receive the "book and record" treatment from Power Records in 1974! Click images below to enlarge!
