Captain America #197 - The Rocks are Burning

Following the "Kill-Derby" battle of the previous issue, this story has Cap and the Falcon battling in the underground lair of the New Society in their search for the "Big Daddy" Madbomb.

While they fight inside, General Argyle Fist leads the US Army squad looking for the enemy in the desert above. This is a bit of a placeholder issue, though it reads well as part of the overall eight issue story, with a lot of action and one of those great big Kirby devices in the form of a sonic gun. I also like the General, who has some funny overblown dialogue in these issues.

Frank Giacoia inks the story and cover, a great job as usual.

Published 1976
