One of the definitive Captain America artists, it's fitting Steranko's version was chosen to advertise volume one of his seminal HISTORY OF THE COMICS. By the time this ad appeared, I had already found a copy at Kidd's Bookstore in downtown Cincinnati and devoured its information--all-new in those pre-'Net days--many times! With all the scholarship on comics history in the last couple of decades, I'm still not sure this book has been surpassed as a one-stop for the most important historical info on the subject. And then, of course, volume two continued that trend a couple years later!
