Happy Fourth!

This is the back cover from the 1976 Marvel Treasury Edition, Captain America's Bicentennial Battles, a heartfelt tribute to America by Jack Kirby, aka Jacob Kurtzberg, the son of Jewish immigrants, who grew up to co-create the symbol of the spirit of the USA. The country may be flawed, as all countries are, but the spirit remains.

Back when comics were fun and could occasionally be meaningful.

They still can be, of course. Those aspects just aren't in the mainstream anymore, it seems.

Yeah, and nobody wrote a more heartfelt comic than Jack Kirby.
