Joe Simon Passes at 98

This man has had quite the legacy. He and Jack Kirby came up with the super hero who has impacted my life more than anyone one else, save my father. I hope that we can all look back on his work and realize the love we have for comics is all because of this humble son of an immigrant. 

       Over the years I’ve been told more than once that comics are dying, 
       which led me to say that comics have been“dying” for fifty years. As 
       long as there are people pushing to try new things with the medium, 
       there will be comics.

Thanks Joe, “We shall call you CAPTAIN AMERICA, son! Because, like you—America shall gain the strength and the will to safeguard our shores!” Captain America Comics #1
