As the Captain America movie premieres today on the silver screen, I'd like to reminisce about a special Captain America comic, I drew back in 1990.
The issue was called "Captain America Goes to War Against Drugs," It was produced by Marvel Comics and the FBI, along with a slew of US supermarkets. (One edition was also printed in Spanish)
This special issue is most likely my number one, most printed and reprinted comic book, with nine different editions produced in the arc of three years. "War Against Drugs" was a free giveaway, distributed to 120 high school districts, and 40 colleges. Their goal was to reduce substance abuse by educating parents, students, and employers about the menace of drugs.
The 16-page inside story, titled "High Heat" was written by Peter David, illustrated by yours truly, and inked by another Phantom artist, Keith Williams. The cover was by by John Romita, Sr. and Jose Marzan, Jr.
