You won’t want to shield your eyes from this stunning Paolo Rivera art deco cover for Captain America #1. Courtesy of Rick Remender’s blog, this variant cover will adorn the series’ first issue due out on November 24th. At which time it will immediately sky rocket to the upper echelon of our Best Covers of the Year list.
Here’s the thing about Paolo Rivera. He’s not just a chameleon. He’s the kind of chameleon who capably shifts from red to white to blue, and in the end you’d swear those were his original colors. There was a time when we’d look at one of his amazing covers, unable to guess its origin. Once informed, we’d absolutely believe it. These days, we see something with this level of craft and you know it’s got to be a Rivera.
