This is a busy news day. Brian Truitt of USA Today reports that Captain America will be getting his own statue in Brooklyn, in honor of his 75th anniversary. The 13′ bronze sculpture is scheduled to be dedicated in Prospect Park on August 10th. San Diego Comic-Con fans will get a sneak peek at the sculpture, July 20-24. The sculpture will feature the quote, “I’m just a kid from Brooklyn”a featured in Captain America: The First Avenger. It also appears that Chris Evans’ likeness from the film will be used.
This chokes me up, a little. Now we just need a statue of Jack Kirby.
He also sings for the Supra-70s band, RIFLE.
