There’s just something about Alex Ross. He’s one of the greatest comic artists in history, and now he’s taking a crack at Marvel’s new-look Captain America.

Marvel made a huge splash with the big announcement that Sam Wilson, aka Cap’s longtime sidekick the Falcon, would be taking up the shield in Steve Rogers’ absence. As they prepare to kick off his new run in Rick Remender’s All-New Captain America #1, the comic company has released solicitations for the first issue — including the variant covers.

Comic legend Alex Ross has crafted a stunning look at the new Cap in action in one of those, as old-man Rogers looks on in the distance. Yeah, we want this. A lot.
