Another rare meeting of the two Captains, this one fancifully delineated by the late, great Jack 'King' Kirby. There they stand, shoulder to shoulder, those two proud and noble hereos of our respective nations. Sigh...takes me back to the times when you could feel proud of your Western origins and values. These days I feel fucking embarrassed. Never mind though, eh?
Incidently, this little masterpiece can be found on the back cover of the Captain Britain Summer Special 1980. It's printed on glossy paper. Don't you just wish you had an original copy too?
Helpful hint: This would make a great Xmas Present. So would this. That's Kirby's mid-70's run on Cap America collected up nicely. I used to have all the original comic books, natch. But then I sold them when I was really, really skint. A collection so carefully maintained in childhood plundered, betrayed and totally fucked-over by the grim necessities of adult life. Makes ya wanna spit, don't it? These would make a nice replacement. Add this, too. Thanks in advance...
