The Sterankophile: Captain America

The Spirit of America print

Jim Steranko has often cited Captain America as his favorite comic book character.

In the wake of terrorist death and destruction, America has rallied with a renewed sense of patriotism and a powerful resolve to protect the nation's freedom.

United in that cause, Jim Steranko and Marvel Comics have joined forces to bring hope and courage to the victims of the 9/11 tragedy.

Heralded for his spectacular patriotic covers and action-packed panoramas, Jim Steranko delivers the definitive image of the classic star-spangled hero in The Spirit of America, a breathtaking vision celebrating the legend of comics' fighting Sentinel of Liberty, from his battle-born World War II creation through the Cold-War revival to today's turbulent crusade.

"Captain America has always been my favorite character and I know he holds a unique place in the hearts of all comics fans. It's a great honor to be associated with him again in this special cause", Steranko says, referring to his innovative series that redefined the American gladiator.

In his joint venture with Marvel Comics, Steranko has pledged a 100% donation to WTC Charities from the sales of this print, with a goal of $100,000. Join the fight to maintain liberty and justice among all Americans.
