1968’s “When Wakes the Sleeper!”

Below are some Captain America scans (for Independence Day, of course!) Photocopies of the pencil art pages that Kirby submitted to Marvel are followed by scans of the original art. These scans contain Stan Lee’s script and production notes, the lettering by Artie Simek, and the ink art by Syd Shores.

Also included are scans from the story’s first publication in May 1968’s Captain America 101. The artist who provided color guides was either Marie Severin, George Roussos or Stan Goldberg. (I admit I’m not sure of the current thoughts on the coloring at Marvel once it expanded the number of titles it published around this time. If you have any pointers, citations, or anecdotes, please let me know in the comments below.)
