Marvel has made good on its proposal to create a 13-foot-tall Captain America statue for the character’s 75th anniversary.

As previously reported, the statue is slated to debut at Marvel’s booth during San Diego Comic-Con before being shipped to Brooklyn, where it will be unveiled in Prospect Park on August 10th. After a month on display, the statue will reportedly be moved to the Barclays Center before heading to Sunset Park in October.

As if this isn’t enough, Entertainment Weekly reports that a special 75th anniversary comic will also be released at Comic-Con which depicts Captain America kicking it with the bronze representation.

There’s also an examination of commercialism in the art/comics world that leads to the title of the video itself, Art Before Commerce.

That being said, there’s a heavy dose of opinion in the production, as well as some unabashed dumping on other comics – especially Garfield. Check out the video after the break…
