    Joe Simon Captain America Comics #5 "The Ringmaster of Death" Cover Re-Creation Original Art (undated). "How could Captain America not have been a reaction to the times? The Nazis were a menace, an evil in the world. The U.S. hadn't yet entered the war when Jack and I did Captain America, so maybe he was our way at lashing out against the Nazi menace." So quotes Joe Simon, about his red, white, and blue co-creation with Jack Kirby. Offered here is a poster-sized cover re-creation of Captain America Comics #5 by Joe Simon, featuring the star-spangled superhero as he punches the Ringmaster of Death's ticket. Rendered in ink on heavy paper, this piece has an image area of 12.5" x 17.5", and its condition is Excellent. This piece is signed by Joe Simon in the lower right margin corner. From the Joe Simon Estate.
