    Jack Kirby and Joe Simon The Double Life of Private Strong #1 Splash Page 16 Original Art (Archie, 1959). Simon and Kirby briefly worked for the Archie Adventure line of comics, producing two issues of The Double Life of Private Strong in the late 1950s. Private Strong was the alias of the Shield, a revived character from the old MLJ days, before Archie came along and changed the direction of the company. In fact, the Shield is considered the first "patriotic" comic superhero, predating Simon and Kirby's own Captain America by over a year. This page is in ink on bristol, with an approximate image area of 12.5" x 18.25", and has some interesting child-like doodles on the reverse, possibly by one of Jack's children. The art remains in Excellent condition. From the Joe Simon Estate.
