This '66 image of my favorite super hero, Captain America, wasn't published at the time. It's drawn by the great Jack Kirby with gorgeous inks (and colors?) by Don Heck. In 1966, I was just starting on comics and the first Captain America I ever saw was Heck's, in an issue of THE AVENGERS.

  1. FUNNY you should mention Cap as a favorite.. It's how I got my start in collecting comics. As a 3yr old in '66, I always watched for the Cap stories on the Marvel Superheroes series on TV, sitting with my Captain Action action figure.

    I never had the Captain America costume set (bought it loose and minty years later), but it's from watching him most of all did I start my life-long love of comics.
