    Joe Simon Captain America Comics #1 Cover Recreation Original Art (1991). Few American comic books can claim to have the importance of the 1941 Timely Publications title, Captain America Comics #1. Created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, Captain America became the most successful of the many patriotic heroes to arise following the conflict in Europe involving Nazi Germany and the attack on Pearl Harbor by Japan which resulted in World War II. Here's a wonderful recreation of the action-packed cover to that first, highly sought-after issue, from the hand of co-creator Joe Simon himself. The painting and one other re-creating the cover for Captain America #10 were the only two that Simon did expressly for a Sotheby's auction in 1990. The art is in Excellent condition, fully rendered in mixed media, with an image area of 12.5" x 17"; it is signed by Simon in the lower right margin underneath the mat board, and has been professionally matted and framed to an overall size of 27.75" x 33". Captain America has soared in popularity in recent years due to developments in the ongoing Marvel comics series, proving that this is one hero that will never die. Celebrate the good Captain with this iconic work of art!
