We use the Global Shipping System for all international orders.Despite the slew of WWII era covers that reflect Axis war atrocities, almost none make direct reference to the Holocaust. In a very direct and profound way, the cover for Captain America Comics #46 does it by depicting one of modern history's most shameful actions of man's inhumanity to his fellow man. As such, this 1945 issue is a transcendent one. As the U.S. and its allies fought for the very soul of Europe against fascism, the late great artist Alex Schomburg - who was Jewish - had the will and the courage to portray a scene that in all likelihood few artists would attempt: the ultimate patriotic superhero and symbol of America takes the fight right to the crucible of Nazi atrocities and, despite the unimaginable horror of these acts, exposes them to the light. Before there were Holocaust museums, before the Nuremberg Trials, Schomburg's cover was a lurid, four-color reminder of just what was at stake and why America's resolve must not be broken. Captain America Comics #46 is, and will always be, one of the MOST IMPORTANT comics published of any era. Because this book is so closely guarded by those lucky enough to own it, we RARELY have the opportunity to offer one at any condition - it seems that serious Timely collectors would prefer to bring this classic book along with them into the afterlife, and who can blame them ! This relatively more accessible CGC 2.0 example presents nicely considering its 75 year old age. It is worth mentioning that this specific copy has rich un-faded cover colors, near perfect, fresh Off-White to White page quality ( rare for Timelys ) and overall great eye appeal for its very strictly assigned grade. Please note that this particular issue typically sells for many multiples of current guide and is a FANTASTIC investment as Captain America # 46 never seems to go down in value and always seems to go up again and again as the years go on !
