This amazing 172 page volume is filled with 160 pages of comics, ALL of which were published during just two months in 1947. No wonder Kirby was known as "The King." And these aren't just any comics. No! These two months saw Kirby embark on one of the greatest periods of his career. As editor Greg Theakston explains in his introduction to this volume, Kirby and his creative and business partner, Joe Simon, had, at long last, manged to secure a profit sharing deal -- with the publisher Crestwood (Prize) -- after years of being exploited by publishers Timely (Marvel), National Periodicals (DC). Finally having a direct financial stake in the succcess of their titles unleashed Kirby's inner dynamo and he produced a stunning amount of excellent work. The highlight here is Young Romance #1, in which Simon & Kirby introduced what would quickly become the most successful genre in comics publishing; yes, that's right -- romance comics. Also contained in this amazing volume are Kirby's contributions (5 stories, if you can believe it!) to Justice Traps the Guilty #1, the classic crime series, plus Kirby's lead stories for the ongoing crime comics, Headline Comics #26, Real Clue v.2#7; an action-packed story each to Airboy v.4#8 & #9; and the light-hearted 13-pager for My Date #2, and a funny animal(!) tale featuring Albert the Alligator for Punch and Judy v.3#1 showing that Jack could truly do it all, do it well and do it fast. All these comics in only 60 days, the mind reels... We want to encourage Copacetic customers to venture forth and experience this work, so, for a limted time, we are offering this volume at a super special price.
