I’ve been pretty busy with work, the Christmas season and prepping myself for my NaNoWriMo event.
But I have to take a moment though to stop and reflect on the writer, artist, and editor legend: Joe Simon.
Today, Joe Simon passed away at the age of 98. Not only was he the co-creator of Captain America and Bucky with the legendary Jack Kirby, but he still had a prominent role in comic books today.
I always thought it was incredble when in 2007, during Marvel’s Civil War and the death of Captain America, Simon was quoted saying, “It’s a hell of a time for him to go. We really need him now.”
You will be missed.
I can only assume you’re working on something new with Jack right now.
