TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3563:
It was just last week that I blogged about the passing of comics great, Jerry Robinson, (blog #3559).
Tonight, I'm sad to relay the information that another comics great, Mr. Joe Simon passed away on Wednesday, December 14th...
It is getting late in the day here on the West Coast... and at first I was looking through the photos I've taken over the years at comic conventions for a good photo or two to run here.
But unfortunately I've not yet scanned all the images from years ago when I didn't have a digital camera.
Plus, after recently reviewing blogging Mr. Simon's works with Jack Kirby, (blogs #3207 & #3530 are a couple that come to mind), I thought it fitting to include a couple of photos of Joe & Jack, along with a cropped photo of Joe by himself in the first column of this blog's header.
Here is the link to a list of Joe Simon's credits in comics via the Grand Comics Database (GCD).
Here is the Wikipedia entry to his public life, where you can read more of his accomplishments over the decades.
I enjoyed reading his works with Jack, and his own later solo works. His contributions to the comics industry will be remembered for decades to follow...
My condolences to his family and friends.
