Marvel is celebrating Captain America’s 75th Anniversary with one of the creators who boldly mastered the patriotic majesty of Captain America, Jim Steranko.
“Five decades ago, Steranko threw pop art, surrealism and graphic design into a blender, and forever changed the way we tell comic book stories,” says Marvel EiC, Axel Alonso. “He was way ahead of his time back then, and he’s every bit as relevant now.”
“Jim Steranko is one of the grand masters of comic book graphics, and Captain America remains his favorite character, so it’s a true pleasure to have him contribute a series of new never-before-seen images to help celebrate Cap’s 75th anniversary,” says Marvel Senior Vice President and Executive Editor, Tom Brevoort.
Continuing through 2016 and into 2017, Marvel will be presenting monthly Jim Steranko variant covers on some of their most popular comics:
· AVENGERS STANDOFF: ASSAULT ON PLEASANT HILL OMEGA #1
· CAPTAIN AMERICA: STEVE ROGERS #1
· CIVIL WAR II #2
· UNCANNY AVENGERS #11
· BLACK PANTHER #5
· CAPTAIN AMERICA: SAM WILSON #13
· CIVIL WAR II #7
Be sure to look for additional variants to continue with Marvel’s biggest titles into 2017 as Jim Steranko continues his tradition of presenting some of the most outstanding and visually adventurous Marvel pieces only a true master can deliver.
