Editorial Reviews

"A beautiful and expansive book that collects so much of [Jack] Kirby and Joe Simon's great efforts." - Washington Post"As much a valuable historical artefact as it is a compilation of fantastic comic book classics. 10/10. An essential collection." - Total Sci-Fi Online "A gorgeous volume..." - LA Times"The Stuntman stories are some of the best superhero material this pair ever produced." - Blog Critics"... another homerun produced by Titan Books. It’s an eye popping and lovingly produced tribute to some of the best talent that the Golden Age had to offer. Go out and pick it up if you love classic superhero stuff. It’s worth its weight in gold and more." - Ain't It Cool"The ultimate collection for Simon and Kirby’s work..." - Comic Attack
