Great Covers

A similar logo tilt and ground line tilt is employed on this CAPTAIN AMERICA cover by Mike Zeck, for the issue in which the U.S. Government strips Steve Rogers of his costumed persona. It’s a nice design, with the stripes of the flag becoming dripping blood, and Cap’s emotional state communicated by his body language alone–a strong choice, to conceal his face so much. The only misstep, I think, is the crying Lincoln in the corner box. On another cover, that sort of thing would be a master stroke, but here it gets its laugh at the expense of the emotional heft of the cover image.
