Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Beautiful reproductions of superbly drawn Simon and Kirby works, resplendent, off-beat villains, a few nice plot twists and what amounts to an en–thralling time capsule of the America of the 1950s." - Gannett - Montgomery Advisor

Praise for The Simon and Kirby Superheroes:

"A beautiful and expansive book that collects so much of [Jack] Kirby and Joe Simon's great efforts." -- Washington Post

"As much a valuable historical artefact as it is a compilation of fantastic comic book classics. 10/10. An essential collection." -- Total Sci-Fi Online

 "A gorgeous volume..." -- LA Times

Meet the Author

Joe Simon and Jack Kirby created one of the most enduring American heroes in 1940 with the first issue of Captain America Comics from Timely Comics — the company that became Marvel Comics. Simon proved to be a brilliant editor, writer, penciller, inker, and businessman, serving as an editor for Archie, Harvey, Fox, Crestwood, and Mainline Publications — Simon and Kirby’s own company.

Jack Kirby was perhaps the most important artist ever to have worked in superhero comics. A creative and design genius, the “King” co-created household names such as The Incredible Hulk, the Fantastic Four and the X-Men for Marvel Comics, later moving  to DC where he wrote Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen, the epic saga of the New Gods, Kamandi — Last Boy on Earth and OMAC
