R.I.P Joe Simon, Creator of Captain America and other heroes…
From io9 :
“Joe Simon is a comics legend, for his role in creating the iconic superhero Captain America alone. But in recent years, many of us have gained a new appreciation for all his other great work with seminal artist Jack Kirby. He also co-created the 1940s version of the Sandman, plus some other great Golden Age superheroes like The Fly, the Fighting American, the Stuntman, and many others. ..”
This news, coming only days after we marked the passing of Jerry Robinson, is especially sad. We wish his family and friends well and will miss his unique voice and style.
