There are few names in comics history as important as Joe Simon and Jack Kirby. Their work exemplified everything that made comics an enduring medium: bold, imaginative, exciting, thought-provoking, and often, of course, flat-out weird. The latest collection from The Simon & Kirby Library series somewhat inevitably touches on that last part fairly frequently, since it collects some of their most memorable science fiction work. Heavy on the fiction and somewhat liberal with the science, these tales are gloriously bizarre escapism. See our exclusive excerpt below for a taste of what's in the book (or if you've ever wondered what it would be like to be King of the Ants for a day...)
