The Swine

Here are some interior pages from Captain America # 206 (Feb 1977). I still remember being struck by this sequence after reading this as a 13-year-old kid. Not your typical 70s comic book fare. The Swine, who looks a lot like John Lennon, kills a victim by forcing him to over-eat. Cruel and gruesome. Pages 5, 9, and 10 from the story.

Captain America # 102, Page 11

Captain America # 102 (Jun 1968), page 11 scan. Kirby/Shores. You can see plenty of partial Kirby margin notes which were cut off in production. I can make out the text “… a weird diver” over panel 2. Signed by Jack in panel 3.

I can’t even guess what that substance is on the bottom left-hand corner of this scan.
