    But the tail-end of the Gruenwald run is torpedoed by tiresome, dull, wheeszingly lengthy plotlines of dreary misery. That whole "Cap is Dying" arc almost killed me too with its tedium and total joylessness. Captain America stories can have dark moments, but there always needs to be some light at the end of the tunnel. Gruenwald's run had lost its light. Thankfully, Mark Waid made it shine brightly again.

I didn't read Gruenwald's run the first time around. I dropped Cap when J.M. DeMatteis started his run. I did read Cap sporadically in the late 80s and early 90s. In 1998 I tried collecting the entire run of CAPTAIN AMERICA so I purchased the entire Gru run, mostly in bargain bins for .25 or less. And after reading them, I can say they weren't worth the price I paid. Boring, drawn-out, preachy, over-bearing and I have nothing positive to say about Gru's Cap.
