Description:
Jack Kirby and Joe Simon Double Life of Private Strong #1 Title Page 1 Original Art (Archie, 1959). The Simon & Kirby team's explosive brand of action-adventure is featured in this Cold War thriller from the debut of Lancelot Strong, The Man with the Double Life -- and that's a classic Jack Kirby leaping pose, if we've ever seen one. This frantic fifties page has an image area of 12.5" x 18", and the art is in Excellent condition. From the Joe Simon Estate.

Simon, Joe:Joe Simon (American, b. 1913): is one of the most important and successful comic book creators in comics history. After a short stint as an editor at Fox Publications in 1939, Simon moved over to Timely where he became the company's first editor. By this time he had partnered with Jack Kirby to form the legendary Simon & Kirby team, and the duo had a major hit in 1941 with Captain America. After a dispute with Timely over royalties and other promised compensation, Simon & Kirby moved from company to company, extending their legacy of groundbreaking creations. For Fawcett, they produced the first complete issue starring Captain Marvel, at DC, they produced the Boy Commandos, Newsboy Legion, Sandman, and Manhunter. They also pioneered new genres such as kid gang and romance. The Simon & Kirby partnership ended in 1955, with both men continuing their careers, occasionally teaming again for special projects. Simon continued his career working at Harvey and Sick magazine. In 1990 Simon wrote a colorful history of comics, The Comic Book Makers, and even at age 95, Simon continued to give interviews, write, draw, edit and publish, setting an unparalleled record for longevity in a field famous for its quick turnover..
