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.
Anyone else pick this up? I am a big fan of the Dark Tower series, and was surprised that this book was coming out with such little fanfare. I almost wish I had missed it completely and picked it up from the library in a year or so.
