Cover by Jim Steranko (adapted from the cover to Captain America #111)
On November 5, 1938, in Reading, Pennsylvania, was born a man destined to have a great impact on the comics industry in the years that followed - Jim Steranko. His first major works were completed for Marvel in the year of 1966, when he began working on the Nick Fury, Agent Of S.H.I.E.L.D., series. After a few issues he was pencilling, inking and writing and colouring the book, which was thought by many to be among the best written and drawn strips of the '60s, indeed it was to win Steranko three fan "Alley" awards in 1968. Rated by many as one of comicdom's greatest illustrators, Steranko began to turn his hand to other Marvel characters, principally Captain America and the X-Men. It is his Captain America work that we have chosen to spotlight in this volume. Steranko wrote and drew three issues of Captain America and although these were not numbered consecutively they represent a complete three-part story, which we bring you here in full. Although we have used only one of the original comic covers for the cover of this reprint edition, we have added pages in the body of the book to bring you the covers of all three comics as they were originally seen.Contents:
Because of his unusual talent James Steranko passed through comics very quickly, and left us comparatively little to remember him by. It is partly for this reason that we have so much pleasure in bringing you this example of his fine work.
