R.I.P. Joe Simon

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.
