I'm not one of those folks to talk about racist covers on comics when it comes to World War II and the Japanese. It's easy to forget in these days when the wars we are involved in are not against a country and its people but against smaller groups (Al Qaeda, the Baathists, the Taliban), but in World War II we really were fighting Japan and Germany.

But I have to admit, it's covers like this one that makes me understand why Alan Moore had a character in Tom Strong refer to the Black Terror as a borderline psychopath. Killer artwork (literally) by Alex Schomburg.

This just goes to show that "steamrollering over the opposition" sounds cooler than it would actually look.

Compare the cover of USA Comics #13, also by Schomburg, with Captain America and Bucky. From what I can tell, the two covers will have come out within a couple of months of each other, the Captain America one first.
