A True American Icon Arrives!

It’s not like this is going to be only a collection of nutty comic book covers! 63 years ago Americans were coping with the attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese Fleet and beginning to accept that their immediate future would include a long, brutal war with Japan, Germany, & Italy, I thought I would honor this time with one of the greatest comic book covers, ever.

Captain America 1

In the year before the attack on Hawaii, there was increasing uneasiness about America’s role in the growing conflict in Europe. It was against this backdrop, in March 1941, that comic creators Joe Simon and Jack ‘King’ Kirby created the one true American comic book icon, Captain America. Please enjoy what I consider to be one of the greatest comic book covers of all time!
