Cliff Chiang reveals art for aborted Captain America project

I’ve always been fascinated with projects that could have been but got nixed before they finished (and sometimes before they even got started). The latest in that pantheon of would-be projects is a series of Captain America posters by Cliff Chiang. Although he’s been working under a DC exclusive for years that prevents him from working on Marvel Comics, he recently blogged about a project where he’d draw Captain America in a series of propaganda posters on behalf of an un-named marketing firm lobbying to do work for the movie.

Although it never got past the pitch stage, my art-lovin’ mind salivates at that idea. Here’s the roughs Cliff did for the project:

And get this — Chiang planned on bringing in Jock and Dave Johnson to do some covers too. Shame it never got greenlit. Maybe Captain America 2?

To some extent I think that this particular “1940s propaganda poster” schtick has gotten really played out…

But, that said, that third one is a nice touch. Great concept!

Bummer, these could have been really cool.
