Captain America-Syd Shores-1948

 Timely Comics had a habit of sticking CAPTAIN AMERICA stories in just about every title they had shy of GAY COMICS. This one's from the first issue of the 1948 revival of ALL WINNERS COMICS. GCD says it's by Syd Shores and it may well be but the style seems different to me from his later Cap tales. Very nice art, though.

It looks as if the Cap and Bucky figures in the splash page were redone by Shores, just as Carl Burgos redid the Human Torch in the splash to the Russ Heath 1950s return story. Whoever did the other nine pages here certainly is one of Cap's better Forties artists.
