Jack Kirby, Joe Simon

Young Romance 2

On sale date: March 19, 2014

The sequel to the Eisner Award-nominated Simon & Kirby collection Young Romance.

From tears to soda fountains, from mobsters to pretty ingénues in freshly pressed dresses, the stories in of love and betrayal herein will prompt you to grab a tissue box or swoon in delight. Joe Simon and Jack Kirby’s sensational romance comics continue in this sequel to 2012’s acclaimed Young Romance. This volume covers 1947 through 1949, and includes stories about women from all walks of life — from French widows recently released prisoners. Simon and Kirby invented the romance comics genre and explored all the flirtations, dalliances, and passions of the young men and women who populated their stories. Get swept away by the sheer delirium that these pages induced so long ago. These comics have been meticulously restored in order to produce one of the most striking and faithful reproductions of 1940s.

Praise

“The Simon & Kirby romance stories... were often a notch above. ... Honestly, this is some pretty wacked-out stuff sometimes, but it never fails to entertain -- Simon & Kirby knew their business.” — Andrew A. Smith - Metroland Media
