Let's Rap with Cap! - 1941

With Captain America: The First Avenger hitting theaters today, this seemed like the perfect time to post this vintage(?) photo!

I put the (?) after vintage because, while the photo looks pretty authentic, I have my doubts this is real: the kid is reading Captain America #2, cover dated April 1941. I can't imagine any kid could be that into Cap after just two appearances, not to mention the costume being really, really good--a little too good.

Of course, this pic could have been taken just a few years later, and the kid was reading a (by then) older issue of Captain America. Who knows, and I guess who cares? Its a great photo anyway!

Relaxing with Tintin

I found this photo being used, of all places, for the website of a luxury spa called Foxhills.

Why one of their guests is reading Tintin, I know not; nevertheless I agree, its a great way to relax!
