Please by this book.
The Library Journal had words. “Dazzling from beginning to end, The Best of Simon and Kirby is a monumental piece of comics’ history and a hunk of Americana that is a dream come true for legions of fans. Buy it for your graphic novels, art, or pop-culture collections, but buy it.”

The book is beautiful. The stories are exciting, the Harry Mendryk restorations are fantastic, and the artwork is a joy to behold. If you’ve never seen Kirby in collaboration with Simon, you’ve missed the best. And if you have, you’ve never seen it like this, with vivid colors on oversize pages. I’ve attached a couple of samples—please take a look. We’ve even got stories made available by Marvel and DC, including the first two S&K mega-hits, Captain America and Boy Commandos.
Years ago, Jules Feiffer’s The Great Comic Book Heroes was an epiphany, introducing us to Simon and Kirby, Jack Cole, Will Eisner, and more. THE BEST OF SIMON AND KIRBY is the same sort of experience, with the most exciting super hero, detective, horror, science fiction, romance, and humor ever to appear in comics. It’s full of surprises—under the dust jacket, in the wonderful Mark Evanier introductions, and in the stories. The entire Titan Books team really knocked themselves out!
It’s obscenely inexpensive. There are more Simon and Kirby books on the way, and this is the one that gets the ball rolling. Thank you for your help!
