Brent Schoonover


One day in South Beloit, Il, sometime during the mid-80’s, a young boy named Brent laid eyes on his first comic book.

At that moment a metaphorical thunderbolt streaked down from the sky, enveloping the lad in a glow of inspirational energy that caused him to hold his pencil aloft and bellow his intent to draw comics to all within earshot. He was quickly asked to leave the store because he had startled the other customers, but nonetheless the die was cast. The gumbo that was young Brent’s brain was further seasoned with monster movies, old cartoons, pro-wrestling and other pop culture, resulting in an imaginative worldview delineated in bold lines and defined by a need to tell stories.

Now living in MN, Brent takes on all comers—from comics to editorial illustrations and packaging assignments—with a distinctive style that marries retro and contemporary influences to create something uniquely his own.

About the Book

In this thrilling historical adventure set during World War II, Steve Rogers (AKA Captain America) and his young sidekick, Bucky Barnes, encounter threat like none they’ve ever seen—a Ghost Army. The dead of this war and wars past are coming back to life, impervious to bullets, flames, or anything else the Allies can throw at them. The armies rise from the ground in the night and seem to disappear without a trace.

How can Cap and Buck fight something that’s already dead? And just what does the mysterious Baron Mordo―sitting in his castle atop nearby Wundagore Mountain―have to do with this?
