Glory Days (Volume 1, 109-119)

It's too bad this run wasn't the basis of one of those fancy dancy hardcover Marvel Masterworks volumes. In 11 issues you have the origin of Captain America, Rick Jones' brief career as Cap's sidekick, the "death" of Steve Rogers, the Red Skull, Nick Fury, Sharon Carter, Hydra, the cosmic cube and the origin of his new sidekick, the Falcon. Plus art by the Bullpen's greatest talents-- Jack Kirby, Jim Steranko, John Romita, John Buscema, and Gene Colan, and scripting by Stan Lee. Steranko only drew three issues, but they were classics. (This run was reprinted in Marvel Masterworks, but was split up among two volumes. It's also online on Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited.)
