Unless you’ve been living under a rock or have been frozen in a block of ice for the past couple months, you’ve probably heard a bunch about this Captain America guy, and hey, we get it, comics can be a treacherous world to navigate so we’re here to make it a bit easier for you with a comiXology Guide to Getting Started with Captain America!

Cap has had a long glorious run of protecting the American Way, but it all had to start somewhere, and way back in 1941 (that’s even before Tumblr existed!) Nazis were rolling through Europe and freedom as we know it was being threatened. Joe Simon & Jack Kirby saw the need for a new American Hero and thus Captain America was born, making his first appearance in the now iconic cover of Captain America Comics #1. This comic has the beginning of all that is Cap: The Super Soldier Program, Bucky, and the first appearance of The Red Skull (who is sporting a hell of a sweatsuit…)

Stan Lee, also with Jack Kirby, put his classic style into a retelling of Steve Rogers transformation into the First Avenger in Captain America #109

In what is now seen as the essential Captain America run, Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting brought Cap up to present time. If there is one Captain America story you are going to read this is the one. 

And if you’re really just more of the type of person who wants the newest thing, Rick Remender has helmed the Captain America ship and brought along his unique sci-fi stylings. See how Steve Rogers fares when he is transported as far away from the good ol’ U.S. of A. as he has ever been before with Captain America: Castaway in Dimension Z.

That should give you a good jumping off point for all things Cap! Enjoy!
