This completes the trilogy of the thematically related covers, and next month we'll move on to something different.

I'm very interested in seeing how the incorporation of Batroc will work in the series. The last time I remember him encountering Captain America was briefly during the Heroes Reborn storyline where he fought Cap on behalf of the Skrulls machinations.

Anyways, this is yet another great great cover. I love the awesome cover consistency that's been there throughout the entire series. Steve, I'm glad that you've been doing all the covers this time. It gives the series a sense of cohesiveness.

Thanks Raphael. I'm very happy to have done almost all of the covers, and I'm pleased that I've been able to do painted covers since issue #25. I'm hoping to experiment with different styles more, but I want the covers to be appropriate to the tone of the book, so I probably won't get too crazy.

Thanks for the comment.
