Captain America Comics #27

I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve finally acquired my ‘holy grail’ of motorcycle covers – Captain America Comics #27 from June 1943! With eager anticipation, I’ve entrusted this precious gem for my first restoration project.

Captain America Comics #41

It seems artist Alex Schomburg shared my fascination with Captain America and motorcycles, featuring the hero atop his trusty ‘iron horse’ a total of five times! I proudly completed what I call the ‘Schomburg Captain America motorcycle grand slam’ by adding All Select #4, Captain America Comics #41*, All-Winners Comics #12* and USA Comics #16* to my collection.

Although I initially acquired all five Schomburg Captain America motorcycle covers, I eventually decided to focus on two favorites: All Select #4 and Captain America Comics #27.
