Besides G.I. Joe, the most famous cover work that Mike Zeck did was on Captain America at two different points. Once when he was the regular artist with J.M. DeMatteis, and later on in the 80s when he just did covers during Mark Gruenwald’s run.
Here are the top five covers from that time period!
A nice use of contrasting colors.
Incredibly dynamic cover.
A classic shot of mortal enemies.
A wonderfully serene Cap.
A classic action shot – a really appealing image for a cover – very colorful, too.
A striking use of the targeting of the gun, and coupling it with how gross Deathlok looks, the cover really pulls you in.
A very interesting visual approach.

Such a bizarre mix of character and theme that it really draws in your eye.
Talk about a dynamic cover image!
How can you see that cover and NOT want to look inside?
SOOO tough, but this cover was one of the most famous images of the 1980s, so I think it has to take the top spot.
Well, that’s my top five! Agree? Disagree? Let me know!
