DescriptionJoe Simon Boy Commandos #9 Pacific War Cover Re-Creation Original Art (undated). As an homage to his artistic collaborator, Jack Kirby, Joe Simon re-created, as paintings, several of the team's best Golden Age covers. The piece offered here re-creates a classic WWII propaganda piece as the Boy Commandos and Captain Rip Carter conquer a foothold -- an enemy-occupied island in the Pacific Theater -- in "Assignment in Arrawa Atol." The Commandos were a combination of "kid gang" comics and war comics. The title starred an international cast of little tough guys fighting in WWII battles. Simon has faithfully rendered this art in the signature Simon & Kirby style, and enhanced this piece with vivid coloring. Simon, celebrated by many fans as a first-rate talent in his own right, has combined his talent with his admiration for "the King" to make this piece a true show-stopper. This mixed media cover classic has an image area of 15" x 21", and aside from some art material markings in the margins, and minor wear, the art is in Very Good condition. Signed at the lower right. From the Joe Simon Estate.
