Best Captain America Covers

Since the 4th of July is coming up, what better way to show patriotism by looking at some of Captain America's best and most iconic covers. Captain America is one of my favorite super heroes so I really enjoyed doing the research for this article. I didn't realize how hard it would be to choose because there were so many incredible covers over the last 75 years. I did want to restrict the covers to only regular covers (not variant covers) and to only Captain America titles. Cap has been on the cover of some awesome Avenger titles and others but let's just focus on the main titles. I know I probably have left out some great ones and keep in mind, this is only my opinion. Some of the greatest artist of all time have drawn Captain America. From Jack Kirby to Mike Zeck to Steve Epting, there has not been a lack of talent drawing Cap. There is not a lack of iconic poses to tell a story or get you interested in these covers, from punching Hitler or taking on Punisher to running for president or throwing his shield. I hope you enjoy these covers as much as I do.
