A hidden gem indeed…
I dig Marvel’s “hidden gem” variants, where they pick a great old piece of art by a comics master and turn it into a cover.
Well, the House of Ideas has a doozy coming for July’s Captain America #750 — a gorgeous piece by John Romita that was first published in the Mighty Marvel Calendar For 1975.
