Where to start reading Captain America comics

Where to start reading Captain America comics

I recommend starting Captain America comics either with the fantastic current Cap storyline by Nick Spender, or a self-contained book with classic Steve Rogers.

Modern Captain America

Steve Rogers has been aged, and has passed on the mantle of Captain America to his loyal friend: Sam Wilson, The Falcon ( played by Anthony Mackie in the movies ). This story, with Sam Wilson and Steve Rogers, will lead into Marvel's next big event, Secret Empire, so this is a great place to jump into Marvel comics. Feel free to skip the first book, since all the rest are written by a different writer, so the second book is a great starting point as well.

All-New Captain America, Captain America: Sam Wilson, and Captain America: Steve Rogers in paperback reading order:

All-New Captain America Vol. 1: Hydra Ascendant Captain America: Sam Wilson Vol. 1: Not My Captain America Captain America: Sam Wilson Vol. 2: Standoff Captain America: Steve Rogers Vol. 1: Hail Hydra Captain America: Sam Wilson Vol. 3: Civil War II Captain America: Steve Rogers Vol. 2: The Trial of Maria Hill Captain America: Sam Wilson Vol. 4: #TakeBackTheShield

Modern books with Classic Cap

However, like Nick Fury said in the Avengers movie, 'people might just need a little old fashioned'. Below are three totally independent stories with very classic Steve Rogers Captain America stories.

  • Captain America: White - About Steve and Bucky's first mission together in World War II, told from by Steve just after being unfrozen.
  • Captain America: Man Out of Time - Cap after being unfrozen in the 21st century, trying to deal with the change.
  • Avengers: Four - Set during the first real Avengers shakeup, Steve has to get his new Avengers, Quicksilver, Hawkeye, and Scarlet Witch, to become a real team.
