Joe Simon passed away last week at the age of 98. Joe was one of the true legends in the comic book industry--co-creator of one of the biggest fictional characters ever created for comics, Captain America. Like Will Eisner, he was one of only a few on the talent side of the business who knew about how the business side worked and so he was innovative in that regard. Mr. Simon also created many other characters of note and they are the original Vision, The Boy Commandos, Blue Bolt, Brother Power the Geek, Fighting American, The Fly, Prez, Newsboy Legion, Guardian and, of course, The Red Skull.
In honor of Joe's passing, I sketched up a few tributes to the old soldier... rest in peace, Joe.
