Veteran's Day....

Odd thing, when I started this piece for the auction at the Iowa Comic con that I was planning on attending, I didn't really think about Veteran's Day. If you know me, as a kid all I ever wanted out of life was to grow up and draw the Captain America strip. Well I know that will never happen. And to be frank with all the changes in the strip and character I don't know if I would want too. Unless they would let me do an old school WW2 adventure.
Anyway I am not going to get to make it to the Iowa con. But I did finish inking this piece for them. I will mail it over there when I get the chance.
I hope everyone has a great time. I was really wanting to go. Just can't. Deadlines and other factors.
Anyway, Good Veteran's day to all the vets, service men and women serving, and the past vets - we are all brothers in arms.


  1. Happy Veteran's Day, my friend. And thank you.

  2. Tom,

    I hope you had a happy veterans day. Like you I like my Captain America all red, white, and blue and without an extra helping of angst. I do like the round shield better than the old heraldric-shaped shield though.

    Tom not drawing Captain Amercia comics = more proof we don't live in a perfect world. ;-)

  3. Excellent classic Captain America and Bucky! It is a shame they got away from the good comics from back then.

    Thank you for your service to protect us!

  4. Happy veterans day, Tom, nice picture for the show.
