I’ve always been fascinated with projects that could have been but got nixed before they finished (and sometimes before they even got started).

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?
