With Captain America celebrating his 75th birthday, Marvel has tasked Jim Steranko with creating variants for upcoming issues.
A graphic artist viewed as the most pioneering comic book creator of our time, and one of the most influential artists in the history of the comics, Marvel is proud to announce the return of Jim Steranko as he brings his narrative innovations back to a series of variant covers devoted to Captain America through the years.
“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.
The variant covers can be found on:
- AVENGERS STANDOFF: ASSAULT ON PLEASANT HILL OMEGA #1
- STEVE ROGERS: CAPTAIN AMERICA #1
- CIVIL WAR II #2
- UNCANNY AVENGERS #11
- BLACK PANTHER #5
- SAM WILSON: CAPTAIN AMERICA #13
- CIVIL WAR II #7
The covers will ship through 2016 and into 2017.
