Ch-ch-ch-changes

Make a close comparison between the Captain America figure here and the one on the printed cover, and you'll see that a lot of little changes were made somewhere along the way. Also, there's a splash-balloon in the lower right corner of the printed cover which is nowhere in evidence here, so the art must have been statted and reworked on the stat before publication. Lastly, Tom, just a minor correction to the info you've given in your column on the left: the title of this story is just "1984!", not "It's '1984'!".

Re: Ch-ch-ch-changes

The main change is Cap's right shoulder. It doesn't exist here but was added in the published version or at least in the Captain America Omnibus.

I assume you say it should be just 1984 because the "It's" isn't in the quotes. Makes sense, I updated it. Thanks John.

Okay, Krackles...

...I hereby acknowledge that this one is one hundred percent PURE Giacoia inks -- probably (lol).

Take off…

… Probably or I put on the gloves!

I must admit, Giacoia deadlines fickleness doesn't help.
Frankie, they know and I can't do much anymore!

Glory thieves!

I used to own this and had it

I used to own this and had it restored... There was a half-stat/half-art of Cap & Falcon pasted-up. the half-stat was the kirby OA as you see here. The other "half" (it was more like a quarter of cap) was redrawn by Romita to give Cap more a shoulder and a more erect stance. The paste-up and the splash-balloon, I had put an overlay.

Interesting

I noticed the differences in the figures and other details of the flying debri but when I scanned this the overlay was not with the art...
