Wow.

Sorry if that sounds token and unoriginal, but I am being completely honest.

Also, I agree with everyone on the first design: the usual jam-packed pencils of Mondo's posters. They are great drawings but phenomenally ugly as movie posters, and the use of only three or four colors in a design that busy actually makes it boring to look at.

Those Olly Moss posters are fantastic! I've overly analyzed the Pro-USA one in reply to WP-DFA below, but that Hydra one is great, too. Seeing Cap's emblematic shield as a target to shoot for is genius, and the colors and fonts are spot-on. That's exactly the kind of thing Goebbels would have put together after catching wind of the super soldier program. Nicely done!

I agree the first two are meh. That particular mondo style is awesome when the movie is Kill Bill or Big Trouble in Little China, but doesn't fit right with Cap.

Overrated

Am I the only one that thinks Mondo posters are EXTREMELY overrated, they almost always have way too much shit going on, yet everyone is always going on and on about how awesome they are, I just don't get it.

The propaganda posters are pretty badass, but I generally have to agree with you.

not a fan of the first two. there's too much going on. All the posters should look more true to the posters of the period like the others and that limited print to the cast and crew

The first two are awesomely drawn, but don't feel evocative of what Captain America is setting out for. The others however are perfection.

awesome

except the first two are the exact same except the second is more dull? No big deal though.
The only problem I have with these is 'A is for Victory' what the hell does that even mean?

See the two-finger "peace sign" on Cap's head in that poster? That is actually a "V", as in "V for Victory!" Winston Churchill used to flash this all the time, and it became a slogan and symbol during WWII. Of course, Cap is supposed to have a big "A" on the front of his helmet, so this is a pretty clever pun.

Knowing is half the battle.

@Higgs - ahhh that's pretty cool! Never noticed that, just thought it was the wings he usually has... but still what does the A have to do with the 'V' (victory)?

Well, it's probably that "A" is Cap's logo, on his forehead. So those who know the "V for Victory" slogan (and everyone who would have been alive to see this style poster during WWII would) can go "oh, captain America is for victory!"

Besides that, I think the artist does a great job of realizing this pun visually by disguising the "peace sign" as the wings on his helmet, and placing them on a direct line with the A. These two things are also the brightest elements of his silhouette, making

I actually think the "peace signs" are actually "V for Victory"...back during WWII that sign was associated w/ Victory rather than Peace. (Just Google "Churchill V for Victory"). This way the artist uses the "A for Victory" as a reference to Captain America/America while subtly hiding the "V for Victory" on Cap's helmet. Very clever.

Regardless, thats my favorite one. Now I just need to find where to buy it!
