There was a span of about 6 years where I stopped reading anything Captain America! Reading each issue became a chore and to be honest was embarrassing.
But it was the cover of Captain America # 445 that cought my eye and made me pick up the book. Inside was a story and art that not only impressed me, but brought me back to the greatness of Captain America.
This was the second issue in the Mark Waid (writer), Ron Garney (pencils) and Scott Koblish (inker) but for me was the start of bringing Captain America back to his roots by grounding him and after 208 issues, marked the return of Sharon Carter! Not to mention Cap must work with the Red Skull to defeat Hitler and the power of the Cosmic Cube!
This series has been collected into the excellent trade, 'Operation Rebirth'! Must read!
