20" x 30" illo of Batman and Captain America vs. several Nazi bad guys. The setting is a Nazi stronghold of your choice and the details are:

- landscape format
- include lots of carnage with plenty of Nazi paraphernalia being destroyed (i.e., Nazi banners, machinery, etc.)

Heroes:

- draw Captain America and Batman as in your Batman & Captain America One Shot

Nazi Bad-Guys:

- Golgotha
- your choice of Captain Nazi, Baron Blitzkrieg, or Master Man (Captain America, Batman, Golgotha, and your villain choice are the main characters). Also please include Hitler and one or two JSA villains (Per Degaton and/or, Brain Wave) as obvious Hitler henchmen. Hitler can be looking panicked/terrified or perhaps screaming at his henchmen as if to say “do something!”

Full sized scan on its way to Dan, as usual!

Look at the joy on Batman's face!  That's the Batman I like.

I'm not a violence enthusiast, most of the time; but I love seeing Master Man getting punched in the face!  Awesome Scene!  I can't wait for Cap/Bat II!  In my dreams!

Right, Captain Nazi, the Fawcett (later DC) villain who was pretty obviously the inspiration for Master Man.

This is just perfect! Love the look of the chain that Captain America is swinging in on--just looks like it has real weight. The gun flying out, the perfect look on the face of Hitler, the incredible detail yet everything is clear. I say it over and over, but I can't help myself--I get more joy from seeing any one of JB's commissions than I do from a month of comics.The composition, lighting, ink work---This is a master at his craft, showing what only the rarest of legends can do. Just incredible.

Nice one! I hope our heroes don't forget about Red Skull just around the corner! 

Nazi's make the best villains. Great commission!

Ain't that the truth! I suppose it springs from the fact that, no matter how outrageously we portray them, with skulls for heads or riding around in giant robots, there is always that hint of "reality" to make them extra scary.

Wow. What a great piece.

When I read the description and saw Golgotha, I was crossing my fingers that Red Skull would be showing up as that has been a team up I've longed to see JB draw. I guess I'll have to wait a bit longer.

Still, this is an amazing piece and someone is quite the lucky person today.

I suppose I am quite the Lucky Person today - yes, it's mine.  When JB said he had one more 20 x 30 to do this week, I was hoping it was mine! The Bat/Cap JB book is one of my all-time favorites - so I wanted to commission a double page splash from the "sequel."  Even if it only lives in our dreams.   Once again, far better than the picture in my head!  Thanks so much, JB!

Amazing!  Nothing to dislike here and plenty to love.  Couple favorites are Golgotha's helmet being smashed by Captain America (who's also great) & the work on Per Degaton.  So much detail on both his expression & pose.  Probably my favorite part.

And, all though fan fic it'd be, it would be nice to see Captain America in a new adventure again, even if "unofficial".

I really miss Cap. He was a favorite as a youngster, and he's pretty far off base these days. He's barely even a super-hero. He's "super-soldier in a costume." That may be fine for some, but it's not what I liked out of the character.

Nazis are a cowardly, superstitious lot...

Really like that chunky chain that Cap is swinging in on and how all of it busts the panel. Can't wait to see the large scan in the gallery -- so much detail in the background to pore over.
