The The Simon and Kirby Library : The Simon and Kirby Library Horror Hardback
by Joe Simon, Jack Kirby
From the Golden Age of the comic book era comes an unrivalled collection of terrifying tales that thrilled readers and appalled a nation! At every point, Joe Simon and Jack Kirby raised the bar. When they came to comics, Superman had been around for about a year, and the medium was still in its infancy.
They took the action and made it explode, breaking out of the panels and sprinting across the page.
They showed what comics could do, experimenting with layout and design, creating the first full-page panels and double page spreads.
Their first million-seller was a superhero (Captain America), and their next was military adventure that outsold Superman (DC's Boy Commandos).
These two guys from Rochester and Brooklyn broke all the rules when they created the first romance comics, and they blazed trails in every genre: horror, science fiction, crime etc ...
Their work in the legendary Black Magic was acclaimed by readers, and foreshadowed The Twilight Zone with stories about the malevolent living doll, the thing outside of the airplane, and the beautiful woman in an asylum of freaks!
