Independance Day is almost upon us and partiotic images are hard to miss. During the war years, no Golden Age superhero evoked patriotic feelings more than Captain America, although on the Fourth of July many heroes jumped on this bandwagon with great ferver. We’ve all seen some iconic Fourth of July Superman and Batman covers, but what about some other “Captains” honoring our nation’s independance during the Golden Age?
Don’t mess with Captain Marvel and Uncle Sam. Now, there’s a real Dynamic Duo!
What a cool patriotic cover by Mac Raboy!
And let’s not forget Fawcett’s other “captain”, Captain Midnight. This issue was on the stands at the same time as Captain Marvel, Jr. #9, shown above.
I hope you enjoy these great patriotic covers from Fawcett presented at the heart of the Golden Age of Comic Books!
Happy Fourth of July!
