Captain Marvel

OK, here we have The REAL World's Mightiest Mortal, Captain Marvel. Cap is one of my favorite super-heroes and I always love reading his adventures from the Golden Age of Comics to today.
Here is Cap by three artists I think drew him best.
Above is by Don Newton done in the style of his co-creator.

Here is one by Jerry Ordway done for his great revival series of Captain Marvel "The Power of Shazam". In my opinion Ordway is the only writer/artist to handle Captain Marvel with the respect and dignity this great character deserves.

And this one is by C.C. Beck, The Captain's Co-creator. Beck had a great clean line style that appealed to many children (and adults) during the Golden Age of Comics.
He was one of the Masters of the art form.
