Batman and Captain America (Retro)



This is the first of what will be many retro covers.  I had fun with the handful that I did on the last go 'round with B&B so I decided to make some more.  I hope you all like them.

Captain America was the best of the superhero films for me this summer.  I thought that Chris Evans made a great Steve Rogers, it had a nice love story and the action scenes were right out of a comic book.  The easter eggs for other Marvel films were worked in far less clumsily than they have been in past films.  I loved seeing The Human Torch android make a cameo at the Stark Expo.  It was acted well across the board - Tommy Lee Jones and Stanley Tucci especially seemed to be enjoying their roles.  I really look forward to a sequel and, of course, The Avengers!

For more Retro, how about Batman and Captain Marvel? Would love to see Bob Kane/Jerry Robinson and CC Beck art mashed together!

And for a silver age take, an all Aparo Batman Captain Marvel team up (using Aparo's CM from the covers of the Dollar Comics editions of "World's Finest").

I vote for the Golden Age Sub-Mariner. By the way, are you ever going to do an all Aparo w/ Nightshade? Please!

Sub-Mariner is a good bet as well.

I tried to do that Nightshade cover, but there are so few images to work from. Every search I do comes up with the same one cover appearance.

Dave sez,
AWESOME cover! That's Dr. Death, right?

Who knew he was a Nazi?!

I would love a modern, updated (rebooted?) version of these early Bob Kane stories. The first time I read some of these stories (it was from a book that showcased the evolution of comic books, with an anthology of early industry works) when I was still in grade school, they CREEPED ME OUT! seriously, Kane's Batman was something out of Bram Stoker.

For updated versions of the first Batman stories, you might be interested in Matt Wagner's Batman and the Monster Men and Batman and the Mad Monk.
