I have never understood why Marvel doesn't mine this era of Cap's history. There just seem to be so many story ideas here to me. At least they let the first film be all in WW2 - but there's just so much to talk about here - and not just Nazi ass kicking (although that would be cool). Special operations, OSS missions, relations with the Soviets, Cap dealing with the death camps, etc.
Anyways - I did these few sketches in regards to the ol' re-do a Liefeld challenge - so I'm sure if you know about these competitions, you should be able to make out that my re-do is the bottom sketch.
