Artist Steve Epting reworked his ideas for this crucial CAPTAIN AMERICA cover a few times before finally hitting on this approach. But it’s very effective. The red of the one glove and the droplets of blood silhouette beautifully against the black and white of the newspaper. Making the logo the headline is a nice move as well. And the image is rendered so as to be almost photographic, which lends it an additional air of authenticity.
