Captain America in the Old West

A Western-themed Captain America pin-up from Captain America's Bicentennial Battles (1976)
Jack Kirby had done covers and stories for numerous Western-based characters including Bull's Eye, Lone Rider, and Marvel Comics' Western titles including Kid Colt, Two-Gun Kid, Wyatt Earp, etc., as well as co-creating Captain America with Joe Simon.
So this was an almost-inevitable combination of the super-hero and Western genres by a creative genius in both!
(My wife bet that I couldn't find a way to put Captain America, whose big budget movie opens today, into my Western blog!  If I couldn't, we were going Italian.  Since I won, we're eating Tex-Mex!)
