Joe Simon and Jack Kirby were considered by some “the Lennon and McCartney of the Golden Age of Comic Books.” Every genre, from superheroes and space to Westerns and romance, emerged from their studios. Now, a new coffee-table book, The Art of the Simon and Kirby Studio, brings their personal archives into the light. Its large, newsprint-like pages give you a tactile sense that you’re reading the comics in their original form, but even better. Enjoy these stunning images from the new book.
Young Love no. 66 (c. 1955). Previously unpublished. Cover by Joe Simon, Jack Kirby, and others.
