Tutti Acclamano Capitan America! Rare 1974 Italian Comic Book! Marvel Madness!

Take a gander at an oddball time I picked up at a recent show! It's an awesome overseas Marvel comic, reprinting US comics material from 1974! I had the original USA version, and was captivated then (as now) by the gripping Gil Kane cover art! Click below to enlarge both versions of that memorable comic mag!

cover scene! I told you I was impressed by it!
