PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Joe Simon, who along with Jack Kirby co-created Captain America and was one of the comic book industry's most revered writers, artists and editors, has died. He was 98.
Simon's family relayed word of his death Thursday, posting a short statement on Facebook and telling The Associated Press through a spokesman that the 98-year-old Simon died Wednesday night in New York City after a brief illness.
I thought most of the issue was so-so, but the stuff with Cap was pretty awesome. I really like how between this and Brubaker's run on Captain America, they're really returning some of the awe-inspiring qualities of Captain America.
