CAPTAIN AMERICA 140! Original 1971 Cover Art by John Romita Sr.! Falcon vs Grey Gargoyle! Marvel Comics!

Another biggie, BigGlee-boosters! This is the cover art to CAPTAIN AMERICA #140! Cap and the high-flying Falcon are seen in a last-minute life-and-death scramble against the sinister Grey Gargoyle! Impeccably drawn (dig that composition, shading, and texture) by John Romita Sr., this image fronts one of the handful of memorable CAP comics he drew in the early 70s! Romita would soon be too busy with poster and style guide art, as well as handling the art chores on the daily AMAZING SPIDER-MAN newspaper strip, to do much more interior book art! Click to enlarge and enjoy!
