Come celebrate Captain America’s 75th Anniversary at the Elkhart Hall of Heroes Superhero Museum, with special guest Allen Bellman, the last surviving artist to draw Captain America during WWII – May 14th, 2016!
Captain America, that red, white, and blue Sentinel of Liberty first appeared back in March, 1941 in Captain America Comics #1 from Timely Comics. Created by legendary comic book artists Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, the character was designed as a patriotic super-soldier fighting the Axis powers of World War II.
With 75 years of comics (minus a few years pause, here and there) bearing Captain America’s iconic image, the number of celebrated comic artists who have drawn the character is extensive. The list of those who drew him during the Golden Age, the WWII years, is relatively short, however, and, of their number, only one survives today: Allen Bellman.
Allen Bellman worked for Timely Comics during WWII, alongside other legendary artists as the aforementioned Jack Kirby and Stan Lee, drawing books for The Human Torch, Sub-Mariner, Captain America, and many other classic superheroes.
Excitingly, Allen will be the guest of honor at the celebration of Captain America’s 75th Anniversary at the Hall of Heroes Superhero Museum in Elkhart, Indiana on May 14th, 2016. He’ll be there to sign autographs and talk about his days drawing Captain America during the Golden Age.
Along with Allen Bellman, Captain America’s 75th Anniversary at the Hall of Heroes Superhero Museum will also include a newly restored copy of the issue that started it all: the 1941 Captain America #1. Elkhart’s Hall of Heroes is one of only two museums in the world where you can glimpse an original copy of this famous book.
Other attractions will include Captain America’s Shield used by Chris Evans in the 2011 film “Captain America: The First Avenger,” and the 1965 Kirkham Shelby Cobra sports car featured in both the 2008 “Iron Man” film featuring Robert Downey Jr. and the reality TV series “Fast N’ Loud.”
There will be a Marvel Cosplay contest and Comic and Toy Show as well – not to mention all the great comic and superhero related items you’ll always find at the always entertaining Hall of Heroes Superhero Museum in Elkhart, Indiana.
Don’t miss it!
