It's Independence Day in the USA, and the ComicsAlliance staff has the day off. As such, here's a special encore showing from last year's gallery of especially patriotic superhero art to honor the Fourth of July. Check out after the jump some excellent pin-ups of your favorite superheroes in the red, white and blue (and sometimes yellow - somehow it works) -- including Superman, Captain America and the Strong Female Characters -- and enjoy your holiday.
