Overview

For the first time, legendary tales from comics’ Golden Age are being reprinted in two must-have hardcover editions. This concluding volume collects the stories from STAR SPANGLED COMICS #33-64 and features an insightful introduction by Kirby historian John Morrow.
 
In 1942 the creative team of Joe Simon and Jack Kirby was firing on all cylinders. Following their spectacular success with Captain America and the Sandman, anticipation for Simon and Kirby’s next project was sky-high—and the two comics powerhouses did not disappoint when they unveiled the Newsboy Legion starring the Guardian!
 
With its bracing mix of streetwise urchins, graft-fueled gangsters and panel-busting action, the Newsboy Legion was an instant smash. The adventures of Gabby, Scrapper, Tommy, Big Words and Officer Harper ran for nearly five years and cemented Simon and Kirby’s reputations as two of the medium’s most innovative and prolific practitioners.
 
Collects the stories from STAR SPANGLED COMICS #33-64.

About the Author

Joe Simon is the co-creator of heroes including Fighting America, The Boy Commandos and The Guardian. With his partner Jack Kirby, Simon came to DC Comics shortly after the pair created Captain America for Marvel Comics. The Simon and Kirby team would go on to fame as the originators of the romance comics genre, as well as innovating with war, Western and mystery titles before splitting up in the late 1950s. Jack "King" Kirby's comics career began in 1937 and continued for nearly six decades. After his fruitful collaboration with Joe Simon ended in the late 1950s, Kirby joined Marvel Comics, where the first issue of Fantastic Four cemented his reputation as comics' preeminent creator. A slew of famous titles that followed elevated Kirby to legendary status, including Incredible Hulk, Avengers and X-Men. Kirby returned to DC in 1971 with his classic "Fourth World Trilogy," which was followed by THE DEMON, KAMANDI and OMAC. Kirby continued working and innovating in comics until his death in 1994.
