That one splash page tells a whole story by itself, no words, just three characters in a dynamic pose. This relates to the other thread about action vs talk-- this panel doesn't NEED words! We get it! Superlative example of artistic storytelling, JB.

"Oh my...  Cap killing?"

Can't kill something that's already dead.  Cap's just gonna change Blood from undead back to dead dead.

Good god...that is really great Captain America. I like your run on the book
but looking at this puts that to shame. Beautiful stuff.

My god, it's . . . full of stars!
So far, my absolute favourite, favourite commission piece since I've
joined the forum. This is raw, uncontested brilliance.

Thank you.

Thanks Paulo and Gerry!  What a credit to Johns artistic skill that I was able to glean the gist of the situation from just one image.  I will look around for that trade, with luck my local library will have it, they're pretty good about their trade collection, and I'm cash-deprived until my wife goes back to work (school starts)!

Cap has a long tradition of killing Nazis.

The tragedy of this piece is not Cap's regret, nor the pure evil of Baron Blood - it's the fact that the Stern/Byrne Cap was cut short through editorial stupidity! Imagine what additional awesome Captain America work they could have produced together! It could have been a dynasty!

Still, I'm grateful for what we got. The best Cap run ever!

Yep, and the Japanese, too. There's a number of Golden-Age covers with Captain America sporting a machine gun and other weapons, firing on enemy soldiers.

Ah, but is it really simpler? To me, it's every bit as detailed as any other commission (other than character shots with no backgrounds).

I think a more accurate description might be "pure".  When I see pencils from any artist, I love looking at the detail they put in or leave out.  It's art in its most pure, raw form.

And that is a gorgeous piece.
