Phnomenal art! I'm really looking forward to reading Captain America #1 next month.

Ryan Meinerding is one of the best artist ever. I'm a fan.
luckylu - 10/22/2012, 4:37 PM
awesome art but didnt they forget to make him look like chris evans? on a side note i just wish marvel would have kept him with a mask instead of helmet
MizeatWizad52 - 10/22/2012, 4:38 PM
if only his movie costume could look this good (hint hint Captain America 2/Avengers 2)
BlueDemon - 10/22/2012, 4:38 PM
right image as...IT'S MINE!!! EPIC COVER!!!
RexBlazer1 - 10/22/2012, 4:38 PM
I love art with a realistic tone to it. Next to Alex Ross, this is art I can sink my eyes into.
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 10/22/2012, 4:38 PM
Wow! Sweet art, man. If Marvel Studios were to use this as their starting point for re-designing on Cap's suit for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Although, I'm still not too keen on those knee-pads that Cap is rockin'. I don't know. Seems off, IMO. Still, bad@$$ looking, nonetheless. :D
Spideyguy94 - 10/22/2012, 4:39 PM
Wow just wow
BlueDemon - 10/22/2012, 4:39 PM
For a second there I thought it said cover by Romita ahahahahahahahah
DioFoRio - 10/22/2012, 4:41 PM
I like that it doesn't look like Chris Evans(I love Chris as Movie Cap but Cap, cap is cap ...)putting pipe down now.
DarthTesla - 10/22/2012, 4:43 PM
Whoa. That is bad ass.
Niuhll - 10/22/2012, 4:43 PM
Jesus, very nice.
KaneVonDoom - 10/22/2012, 4:44 PM
HOLYYY SHEEEIT... that is damn nice.
FightAs0ne - 10/22/2012, 4:45 PM
Holy.....Please let this be future concept art for CA TWS.

SageMode - 10/22/2012, 4:59 PM
Badass. This is what Evans should look like in CA:TWS.
Jollem - 10/22/2012, 4:59 PM
good stuff. cap doesn't look like an awkward blue condom here
Spidey91 - 10/22/2012, 5:00 PM
please let this be the suit for CA: TWS!
OdinsBeard - 10/22/2012, 5:00 PM

this is now the standard by which all covers will be measured.
OdinsBeard - 10/22/2012, 5:03 PM
gimme Thor, Iron Man, Hulk and Spider-Man variants by this guy NOW please and thank you.
myparentsaredead - 10/22/2012, 5:04 PM
^What OdinsBeard said.
peppy - 10/22/2012, 5:06 PM
Ryan meindering is pure class , his work is beyond brilliant
KaneVonDoom - 10/22/2012, 5:08 PM
Can we have this guy replace JRJR as artist on Cap? Pleeeeease
marckos - 10/22/2012, 5:11 PM
I hope they use this art to the new costume from "Captain America the winter soldier"
RaleighAntrobus - 10/22/2012, 5:13 PM
That's how I imagined Captain America... not Chris Evans. Sorry, I see Evans in the suit and I'm just not impressed.
Bane2099 - 10/22/2012, 5:18 PM
That looks like Brad Pitt as Cap
Bane2099 - 10/22/2012, 5:19 PM
Hmmm whos to say this ISNT actual concept art for the next film
LordHuck - 10/22/2012, 5:19 PM
Can we have this guy replace JRJR as artist on Cap? Pleeeeease
Bane2099 - 10/22/2012, 5:23 PM

I've said it a million times, they should've just kept his WW2 strap helmet for The Avengers with the new suit. still would've worked out awesome.
imnotwearinghockeypants - 10/22/2012, 5:24 PM
Awesome. Kinda looks like an older Casper Van Dien.
toco89 - 10/22/2012, 5:26 PM
THAT is what Steve Rogers should look like. Not Evans.
Bane2099 - 10/22/2012, 5:29 PM
This should be Caps new look for the sequel...look how they re-worked Thors suit for his sequel, do the same for Evans as Cap.
BlueDemon - 10/22/2012, 5:33 PM
Reminds me of Geoff Stults
Luko - 10/22/2012, 5:34 PM
Don´t worry guys... we are living in the reboots-era now. In 5-10 years we will see new cap, and I hope that would be the real Captain America and not the parody! And I almost forgot: I like his hair-style short and elegant :D
superotherside - 10/22/2012, 5:49 PM
Wow, fantastic art! The suit is perfect as well. I always liked the chain mail look. That just defines Captain America. Hope that's the suit they use in Captain America: Winter Soldier!
