September 1972, Captain America #153, Page #18, Sal Buscema pencils/Jim Mooney inks, “Captain America--Hero or Hoax?”, I just had to bring this page back home. The best page in the book after the title page. I sold this glorious page back in 2011 and I regretted it since. It came up at auction in 2013 but I could not bid even half of the $2,390 it sold for. Well, I paid a few dollars more this time. Cap 153 was the 1st Captain America comic I ever read off the newsstand! And thus, I became a lifelong Cap fan in the summer of 1972. In fact, I know the exact date I became a Cap fan. It was June 13, 1972. I had just turned 11 years old about 2 weeks earlier. The original cover date for Cap 153 was September 1972, but the comic came out June 13th, 1972. (Source: my good friend Barry Pearl’s “The Essential Marvel Age Reference Project, 1961-1977 by Barry Pearl”, which shows the actual date that every Marvel comic showed up on the stand.) In Cap 153 began the historic storyline, "Captain America--Hero or Hoax?", written by Steve Englehart, which reintroduced the 1950s Cap and Bucky in the current Captain America timeline!
