It's a true pleasure to read." - Graphic Novel Reporter"... essential reading for any fan of comic book history and storytelling." - ComicBook.com--In his own words, this is the life of Joe Simon, one of the most important figures in comics history, and half of the famous creative team Simon and Kirby.
