Simon and Kirby Cover Art for Early Harvey Comics

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 20:33:27 +0000

Al Harvey must have been a great salesman. With the failure of his concept of pocket-sized comic books you would have thought that would have been the end of Harvey’s publishing career. Instead not only did Speed Comics return in April as a regular size comic, Harvey took over publishing Champ Comics in May, and […]

Joe Simon Cover Art for Harvey’s Pocket-Size Comics

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 15:51:22 +0000

I stopped posting on my Simon and Kirby blog over four years ago, primarily due to pressure from my day job and the restoration work I was doing for Titan’s Simon and Kirby Library. Work on Titan’s publications have since been completed and I have recently retired. Although I now have more free time, I […]

All Things Must Pass

Sat, 17 Nov 2012 14:51:09 +0000

I started the Simon and Kirby blog back in March 2006. There were a number of reasons that I began blogging but I always felt the main benefit to me was that writing allowed me to clarify my thoughts. Certainty popularity was not a concern which was fortunate since tracking software indicated that initially my […]

Speaking of Art, Secondary Artists

Sat, 10 Nov 2012 12:42:22 +0000

Joe Simon had accumulated a rather large collection of art. Not surprisingly many were works that he created over his long career starting when he was a staff artist for a newspaper. Also as might be expected there are a fair number of works drawn by Joe’s long time collaborator, Jack Kirby. However that does […]

Life’s a Sandy Beach

Sat, 03 Nov 2012 10:45:36 +0000

Sorry but no there will be no regular post this week. My electricity was out from Monday until Friday so I had been unable to prepare anything. I consider myself fortunate in that my neighborhood received little physical damage from storm Sandy and my power has been out only for a limited time (I work […]

Speaking of Art, Joe Simon’s Hector Protector

Sat, 27 Oct 2012 11:34:42 +0000

Hector Protector was dressed all in green; Hector Protector was sent to the Queen. The Queen did not like him, Nor more did the King; So Hector Protector was sent back again. This, Like so many other nursery rhymes, may seem like nonsensical verse. One theory is that Hector Protector was based on a Richard, […]

Speaking of Art, Simon and Kirby’s “Remember the Alamo”

Sat, 20 Oct 2012 10:33:15 +0000

Simon and Kirby were a brand name during the golden age of comics. Their fame began with their creation of Captain America and continued for many years. There are a number of reasons that Simon and Kirby work was so admired and influential but they can be summed up by saying Joe and Jack produced […]

Joe’s Birthday

Wed, 10 Oct 2012 23:55:07 +0000

Birthdays are supposed to be occasions of celebration, but for me this one carries a sad undertone. Today, October 11, Joe Simon would have been 99 years old. But his was a good life and his work touched millions, so still there is also something to celebrate. At 5:15 pm Friday, Oct 12, there will […]

Speaking of Art, The Other Jack

Sat, 06 Oct 2012 11:39:26 +0000

Sick #23 (September 1963), art by Jack Davis (original art) Joe Simon had a large art collection. It might be expected that most of it would consists of work that Joe did himself or were drawn by Jack Kirby as part of their long collaboration. While Joe owned a fair amount of art drawn by […]

The Wide Angle Scream, The Unpublished Stuntman

Sat, 29 Sep 2012 11:55:45 +0000

Some years ago I wrote a serial post called the Wide Angle Scream  where I discussed the various Simon and Kirby double page splashes that were published over the years. I did include one Stuntman double page splash that had not been published (Terror Island) but there were two others that I did not discuss. […]
