An excellent issue; Steve Englehart continues his good groove with Cap, which revived the title in 1972 with a solid year, after the so-so year of 71, and absolutely nadir of 1970.  Here, Englehart keeps the Falcon vs. ghetto crimelords subplot going with a decently light and realistic touch (vice the many ongoing urban/black clichés several of the title's writers fell prey to), the Muldoon - corruption - Muldoon suspicion of Steve Rogers subplot flowers more fully, and we get two fight scenes and a few minor plot surprises. 


I am rereading all of what I consider Silver Age Marvel (64-70) and Plastic Age Marvel (71 - 74 onward) on my subscription.  After workihg through marvel at its peak (1967 -- BY FAR its best year), and tracking the decline (good in 68, slipping in 69, dismal in 70), it is a blessing to see some writers kept some series at a higher level of quality and entertainment through the plastic age.  Englehart's Cap of 72-73 is definitely one of those bright lights in the plastic age darkness!
