Paolo Rivera’s First Vengeance Artwork Revealed


Paolo Rivera,  a very well-known comic book painter, has revealed the cover for the Marvel‘s new digital comic book series, that tie-in with the much-anticapted Captain America: The First Avenger movie.

He mentions the following in his blog:

“When I first painted the image, I had only as much reference as was widely available on the internet, which consisted of an Entertainment Weekly cover, concept art, and low-res pics of a stunt man on a motorcycle. In other words, I didn’t know exactly what the helmet looked like, and so did the best that I could with what I had. Just prior to the cover’s on-line debut—and after the helmet was revealed—my editor asked for a revision with more faithful details. But I don’t think I was fast enough; it looks like the image they used in the press release was a Photoshop fix. We’ll have to wait and see which version makes it to the digital comic.”

I must say it looks pretty cool! Remember that the teaser trailer for the Captain America: The First Avenger is this Super Bowl Sunday, so stay tuned because Comic Book Therapy will be showing it later that day!
