Synopsis for 1st story

Oversized Marvel Hardcovers

What does Captain America represent?

Captain America the icon is all things to all people- the mighty hero and his indestructible shield is at once comforting and inspiring, challenging and friendly, powerful and timeless. This "Living Legend" is the embodiment of American values and the dream shared by the people of our great nation.

The book you hold roams between humorous and serious, farcical and personal, and, with luck, invokes the power people give over to Captain America. Regardless of your worldview, your likes and dislikes, your take on the world should find a little toehold here. By design, there should be a little something for everyone.

The creators, more than fifty of them, worked for a full year to craft timeless stand-alone stories, to be accompanied by some of the finest craftsmen in the industry, with the challenge of working with a color palette limited to Cap's signature colors of "Red, White and Blue." We've mixed these original short stories with reprints by some of the most memorable creators to ever work on our Star-Spangled Avenger. The names on these reprints include Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, Jim Steranko, Frank Miller, Roger Stern and the modern era's "knights" in shining armor: John Rieber and John Cassaday. Our goal: to underscore that this is the best we could do.

Why would we invest so much time and effort to publish this hardcover? Well, nobody remembers birthdays 65 or 70 in quite the same way, so everyone involved knew their work would need to stand the test of time- because we may not have a Cap celebration like this until he hits 75!

And, really, does he deserve anything less?
