In honor of Memorial Day 2017, two pages from the fully painted 2008 retelling of the Captain America story by Paolo Rivera. Page 15 (ab0ve) starts with a nice WWII vignette of the main characters and ends with the death of Bucky (well, until the Winter Soldier story changed all that) and Cap’s plunge into suspended animation.

Page 11 (below) sets up the introduction of James “Bucky” Barnes as a hero-idolizing kid and ends with him stumbling across Steve Rogers changing from his Captain America uniform which, inexplicably, makes Steve sign him up as his sidekick.
