1980 Albert Bigley CAPTAIN AMERICA Original Artwork?! Marvel Comics?!

Yup! In this look at another hand-drawn comic book from my past (1980-age 15), here is the watercolor/ink illustration for my own CAPTAIN AMERICA comic book! You can tell I was influenced then by artist Jim Steranko, most specifically his cover to the Marvel CAP index (below, right), hence the many vignettes and oh-so-serious design! I would tape the audio from the afternoon MARVEL SUPERHEROES cartoon reruns, then use that as a "script" for my own comics! This issue was based on the famous mid-60s Stan Lee-penned tale, "The Girl From Cap's Past!" I also completed a full comic featuring the Hulk, as well as another CAP, FANTASTIC FOUR, and others! Whew! Click to enlarge!
