(W) Joe Simon (A) Chris Kirby, Joe Simon (CA) Jack Kirby
In 1954, industry legends Joe Simon and Jack Kirby founded Mainline Publications to publish their own comics during that turbulent era in comics history. The four titles-Bullseye
, Police Trap
, and In Love
-looked to build off their reputation as hit makers in the Western, War, Crime, and Romance genres, but the 1950s backlash against comics killed any chance at success, and Mainline closed its doors just two years later. TwoMorrows Publishing compiles the best of Simon & Kirby's Mainline comics work, including all of the stories with S&K art, as well as key tales with contributions by Mort Meskin and others. This collection bridges the gap between Simon & Kirby's peak with their 1950s romance comics, and the lows that led to Kirby's resurgence with Challengers of the Unknown
and the early Marvel Universe. The Best of Simon & Kirby's Mainline Comics
presents some of the final, and finest, work Joe and Jack ever produced!
