Editors Note In the late 1940s, Joe Simon and Jack Kirby - creators of Captain America - set the comics world on fire with the creation of a new genre that resulted in some of the best-selling American comic books of all time: the romance comics. The stories they created were exciting, innovative, and beautifully drawn, and remain a high point in both artists' careers, even as Kirby went on to become the unrivaled King of Comics and co-creator (along with Stan Lee) of many of the most iconic characters in American history. These two towering titans of the field produced stories for titles such as Young Romance, Young Love, and Western Love for over twelve years until the genre ran out of steam in 1959, and Jack Kirby moved on to a little-known outfit called Marvel Comics.The Romance Comics of Joe Simon and Jack Kirby brings this wonderful work back to light by reprinting 21 stories in full-color, from 13 years of Simon and Kirby's romance comics: 200 pages of never-before reprinted material painstakingly restored over a five-year period by award-winning artist and animator Michel Gagné (Flight, Star Wars: Clone Wars).
