Review quote

"In addition "The Simon and Kirby Library: Science Fiction" contains unpublished material so this is a rare treat. This volume is a book to sit down with and not hurry through. It takes time to read and enjoy the stories and really savor the artwork. I really enjoyed everything about this book and recommend it highly!" - Vic's Media Room "At 320 pages, you'll spend several days enjoying these stories of the future through the eyes of guys writing when Sputnik was circling the planet. Their own optimism and sense of wonder about far off, unknown worlds seeps through the pages of every story. Readers expecting classic comic books stories to be ho-hum will be surprised by how modern many of the tales feel. Their work also establishes early wide boundaries for the science fiction genre, expanding into fantasy, action/adventure and even horror." - Borg.com "It's a great addition to a comics collection and a tribute to the skill of Simon and Kirby." - Hearts on Fire Review "Most old school fans primarily go to Simon & Kirby for the superhero stuff, but the fact of the matter is these guys produced top-of-the-line work in whatever genre they chose. Heartily recommended to lovers of good, basic comic book storytelling." - Blogcritics"Amazing tales of aliens and madness in one collection from the godfathers of comics." - Crave gift guide
