Have I posted these here before, or was it just on the FF and Spider-Man blogs?

Happy Birthday, Jack Kirby!

If the King was still with us, he'd be celebrating his 92nd birthday today! And of course, we have Jack to thank for Captain America, as well as a wealth of other comics characters and stories! Well, Jack and his partners, at least!

Captain America Giant Coloring Book!

Let's see if I can get these pictures in order...

Here's the cover!

Here's the first page of the interior, which gives you an idea of what the art was like.

The back cover of this tabloid-sized coloring book featured this Cap mask!

So, it's the Challenge of Super Sport. Apparently nobody figured Cap had a villain that would be usable in a giant coloring book???

Still, this was a neat idea... it was basically a tabloid-sized comic book that didn't have any color... so you could color it yourself, and still have a comic to read!

Nice idea, not sure how I feel about the execution of it...

Marvel Super Heroes Cap Pistol!

Yes, it's another rack toy that makes no conceptual sense with the characters presented...

Captain America Halloween Costume!

So close, and yet so far... I have no idea why the manufacturer decided to add the multiple colors on the belt, or the wings with Cap's name on the star...
