Cap may have been an old man by the finale of Avengers Endgame, but the character has reached a milestone age in real life, too!
Next year marks the 80th anniversary of Captain America Comics No 1, the March 1941 Jack Kirby and Joe Simon comic book that introduced the world to Steve Rogers.
This coming March, to celebrate the character’s history and lasting impact on pop culture, Marvel will release Captain America Tribute No. 1, a giant-sized, special publication. The tribute will feature work from some of Marvel’s best artists, who are redrawing and modernizing Captain America’s first appearance and his reintroduction in Avengers No. 4 (1964).
Artists contributing to this book include John Cassaday, Marguerite Sauvage, David Lapham, Declan Shalvey, Perf Pérez, Salvador Larroca, Leinil Francis Yu, Valerio Schiti, Carlos Pacheco, Inhyuk Lee, Kei Zama, Sara Pichelli, Jesús Saiz, Kim Jacinto, Adam Kubert, Federico Vicentini, Mahmud Asrar, Jim Cheung, Terry Dodson, Joe Bennett, Alex Ross, Steve Epting, Adam Hughes, Stephanie Hans, Javier Garrón, Alitha E.
