Captain America: Living Legend

So the other day I was ordering a couple of comics and I started wandering around the online shop to find the cherry on top of the comic cake, then came across this series … As it's often the case, I started wondering about the amount of these that existed but I didn't think they were going to be this low, so I thought I would share …

Regular Covers

Adi Granov covers (and interiors for the first issue), print run for all 4 issues well over 20K, making them all easy to find, everybody's happy!!!

Legend Variants

Four legendary artists get to do a cover each. 1:25 variants and a couple of them are quite cool. Numbers are low, but they should not be that difficult to find.

Decade Variants

This set pays tribute to the comics from the 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s and they are, in my opinion, the best covers of this series. Dan Brereton's tribute to Captain America's Weird Tales, in particular, looks absolutely amazing. The problem with these covers if their distribution ratio, 1:50, making the numbers of these minuscule, which is kind of a shame … I have already made peace with the fact that, except #1, I will never have any of these.

This is what the cover for #1 was originally supposed to be, until Cap realized how much more useful a flag would be!
