    Joe Simon - Original Art Cover Recreation of Mystery Men Comics #11 (undated). One of the legends in the field, Joe Simon's career in comics has spanned decades. Best known as the co-creator of Captain America, Simon also brought The Fighting American and Boy's Ranch to life. More recently, Joe Simon has been favoring his Golden Age fans with stunning recreations of some of his most famous covers. Offered here is a poster-sized recreation of Mystery Men Comics #11, featuring the original Blue Beetle rescuing a fair maiden from a hideous fiend. Rendered in acrylic paint on heavy paper, this piece measures approximately 27" x 20.5", with an image area of approximately 21" x 16", and is signed by the artist in the lower right corner. There are several paint smudges in the margins of the piece, but these do not affect the art in any way. On the back, Simon has inscribed, "From a cover by Joe Simon in 1940. Drawn, designed and conceived by Joe Simon, editor and art director of Fox Comics. This recreation is acrylic color, India ink black-brush rendering by Joe Simon."
