Description

Beginning with "Blue Bolt" in June 1940, Joe Simon and Jack Kirby set the standard for costumed heroes. Their creation "Captain America" remains one of the most famous heroes in comic book history, and their work for Timely and DC Comics raised the bar. This large format hardcover collects the duo s most exciting characters: "Fighting American," their cold-war take on the patriotic hero, "The Fly," with origins in an unknown Spider-Man prototype, "Lancelot Strong, " the man with the double life, and the Hollywood swashbuckler known as "Stuntman." This is the only edition authorized by both Joe Simon and the estate of Jack Kirby, gathered from the official Simon and Kirby archives."
