Young Romance 2 by Joe Simon & Jack Kirby - Photoset Preview
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsnew releasesMichel GagneJoe SimonJack Kirby 24 Jan 2014 2:17 PM

"Simon found he had a knack for tangled melodrama set in very specific milieus, while Kirby drew ordinary men and women with the same sweaty fervor that he lent to monsters and costumed do-gooders....All of which means that the Michel Gagné-edited collection Young Romance... isn’t just a book of some minor historical interest; it’s a genuinely entertaining and artful set of comics, and in some ways more readable than Simon and Kirby's adventure stories." – Noel Murray, The A.V. Club

"Simon and Kirby tried to bring as much excitement to primarily psychological and interpersonal goings-on as to punching and flying.” – Paste

"...[T]hese comics are among the best in their genre without a doubt." – Eddie Campbell, The Comics Journal

"...[Young Romance] is a real treat, an inexpensive way to read a nice sampling of some Kirby comics that any Kirby fanatic has to be curious about. Michel Gagné did a great job assembling a fun cross-section of stories... Rating: ★★★★★" – Jason Sacks, Comics Bulletin

"Young Romance underscores Simon and Kirby’s keen storytelling skills. Adhering to a mostly six-panel grid, the duo manage to produce work that is visually arresting and dramatic... For Kirby fans and those who just love to explore comics from generations past, it’s a rather essential read." - Chris Mautner, Robot 6
