RETROFAN #9 Spotlights TV’s First Live-Action CAPTAIN AMERICA

EXCLUSIVE: The issue will feature an interview with the star-spangled Reb Brown — and much more…

Editor Michael Eury’s RetroFan #9 continues its run celebrating the kitsch of the Silver and Bronze Ages and there were few things kitschier than the Captain America TV movies of the 1970s.

So check out the cover — and official description for the issue, due out in the spring:

84 FULL-COLOR pages

NOW BI-MONTHLY! RetroFan #9 features interviews with two TV superheroes, Seventies’ Captain America Reb Brown… and Captain Nice (and Knight Rider’s KITT) William Daniels with wife Bonnie Bartlett! Plus: remembering the Captain Nice TV series, the Wonderful World of Coloring Books, star-studded Fall Previews for Saturday morning cartoons, an eyewitness account of The Cyclops movie, the actors behind your favorite TV commercial characters, Benny Hill’s invasion of America, a trip to the Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention, 8-track tapes, and more fun, fab features! Featuring columns by Ernest Farino, Andy Mangels, Scott Saavedra, and Scott Shaw! Edited by Michael Eury.

A few thoughts:

— The issue is due to ship May 20, 2020, but that’s subject to change a week or so either way. It will be available at comics shops, of course, but you can already pre-order it directly from TwoMorrows. Click here.

— In case you were wondering, RetroFan is going bi-monthly in March, with Issue #8. (Click here for more info.)

— Here at 13th Dimension, we often reveal new pubs from the likes of Marvel, DC and IDW, among others. Now, we’re doing the same with TwoMorrows. (We’ve been providing you EXCLUSIVE EXCERPTS from their mags and books for years now.) Dig it.

— Wanna see something cool from RetroFan #7? Yep, you do. Check out Michael Eury’s heartwarming recollection of getting his first Captain Action figure. Click here.

  1. I unironically love the Reb Brown Cap films more than I should, so I’m really looking forward to this one!
