Great Moments in Comics History: Captain America & The Falcon #9

Someone get this soldier to a Garth Ennis MAX book — STAT!


(Thanks to Ethan for the submission!)


  1. Weird. I would’ve thought Fury was a dog person. Learn somethin’ new every day.

  2. And yet somehow Marvel needs to move Fury out of existence to make way for a carbon copy in a Steve Rogers suit. I don’t get it…

    • Don’t get me started. Blasphemy is a strong word, but I’d say it’s warranted in this case. It’s one of the dumbest and most unneccessary decisions I’ve seen in almost 20 years of reading comics.

    • Fill me in….

    • @DavidClark: I can’t really fill you in in an unbiased fashion, but I’ll do my best. I haven’t read the issues where the new Nick Fury’s made his first appearances, but it’s my understanding that Marvel has made the decision to replace the original Fury with a character who is:

      A) Nick Fury’s illegitimate son,
      B) Also sporting an eyepatch over one eye,
      C) Also named Nick Fury,
      but D) Just happens to resemble Samuel L. Jackson.

      Like I said, one or two of those facts may not be 100%. This isn’t really the place to spark the discussion, but some people (myself included) feel that it’s a lazy, uncreative, and downright stupid attempt to avoid confusing the nonexistent newcomer to comics, who hypothetically is only familiar with the Ultimate/movie version of the character, and who lacks any comprehension skills and/or access to the internet.

      Regardless of how they put Fury Prime out to pasture, and regardless of much it really matters in the grand scheme of things, it shows a lack of respect for one of Marvel’s oldest characters. It’s a lazy solution to a non-existent dilemma.

      That was unbiased, right? 🙂

  3. Oh Priest. I miss your writing so much. Please come back to comics.

  4. I’m like this with shampoo. What the fuck is “normal hair”?

  5. Really? There are NO other posts tagged “Dog Sitting”? I find that hard to believe. Site must be broken.

  6. You used my submission! Thanks for making my vacation week even better.

    And yes, Priest is sorely missed.

  7. although, a panel like between the whore-shagging, swearing, and boozing would offer a comical juxapostion in the middle of a MAX book

  8. Ketchup…..Catsup….


    I’m in way over my head.

  9. Loved Priest, but wasn’t a big fan of the art on that series. Was that the last thing he worked on for Marvel?
