Artist Paolo Rivera was commissioned to create a special poster as a gift for the CAPTAIN AMERICA movie’s cast and crew. This is the result:
The prints, limited to 100 or so, were reproduced at actual size. Even Stan Lee got one! I was given access to a vast collection of production stills—each emblazoned with a watermark pattern of my name—from which I selected my favorites. All of the lettering is hand-drawn, with the exception of the small credits at the top and bottom (I ran out of steam). While I did some post-production work in Photoshop, the original looks more or less like what you see here. You’ll have to wait until I finish Daredevil #3 before I share some of the behind-the-scenes material, but the “Hitler getting punched” reference will be well worth the wait.
