The Grooviest Covers of All Time: Celebrate America with Captain America!

My fellow Americans: Happy Independence Day! To Groove-ophiles the world over: Happy July 4th, Thursday, or whenever you are reading this post! Today Ol' Groove feels like sharing some of his fave Groovy Age Captain America covers. Hope you dig 'em!


  1. Love that monumental menace one, it made me chuckle; the Dragon Man is also great, but really, they all are.

  2. Re-posting this comment; got it in an e-mail, but Blogger wouldn't recognize it...

    "William Preston

    Let's see: Kirby, Steranko, Colon, Romita, Kirby, Kane, Sal Buscema, Chan, Pollard?/Sinnott, Byrne. Nice. That Kane-cover issue was among the first I bought when I really started collecting; little did I know that the promise of discovering Steve Rogers's past was a recurring red herring."

    And you nailed all the artists, William! Way to go!

  3. Can't go wrong with covers by the "masters": Steranko, Kirby, Buscema, Kane & Gene Colan. As a kid, I loved the cover to Capt. America #171: "Falcon gets his Wings"...tried drawing that cover over & over !
