Joe Simon and Jack Kirby set the standard for costumed heroes with Blue Bolt and Captain America. This title introduces some of their most exciting characters: Fighting American, The Fly, Lancelot Strong and The Stuntman....

The Simon & Kirby Superheroes collection contains almost 500 pages of classic comic book action from two of the industries greatest character creators.

Superheroes in this collection include The Black Owl, Stuntman, The Vagabond Prince (which includes a previously unpublished story), Captain 3-D, Fighting American, Lancelot Strong and The Fly. All have several stories and include their original first issue appearance - any additional stories included are the subsequent issues printed.

Titan Books has certainly rolled out the red carpet for this release. Hardback edition, A4 in size, packed to bursting with classic (1940 - 1959) superhero tales.

Yes the writing and illustrations lack the depth and complexity of today's comic book creations - after all these stories were written in a time when comic books were mainly designed for kids - but for those who enjoy this era, then this is an essential purchase.
