Industry legend Jim Steranko is returning to Marvel Comics to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Captain America with a series of variant covers.
“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 in a press release. “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.
Through the remainder of 2016 and into 2017, Marvel will release a monthly Jim Steranko variant cover. Here are the announced issues that the covers will appear on:
- AVENGERS STANDOFF: ASSAULT ON PLEASANT HILL OMEGA #1
- STEVE ROGERS: CAPTAIN AMERICA #1
- CIVIL WAR II #2
- UNCANNY AVENGERS #11
