- Full Description
After creating, writing and drawing Captain America, S&K left Timely and moved over to DC Comics--the big boys on the block. And they began, In 1942, a remarkable run of stories for DC Comics that included The Sandman, a long-time feature they updated in the pages of topselling Adventure Comics. Leaving behind his trademark green suit, fedora and gas mask, The Sandman became a brightly costumed adventurer, on the trail of crime in the big city with the help of his sidekick, Sandy the Golden Boy.
DC's Captain America and Bucky? You decide. But one thing is clear--the wild, innovative action that Kirby was pioneering at Timely moved right over to DC. This is the panel-busting, centerfold panoramic, unbridled action that made Kirby's Cap such a hit. These issues of Adventure Comics are among the most desirable early DC comics, right up there with Superman, Batman, and Detective. And the Sandman quickly returned to being the cover feature, as our fabled creative team poured out their best in these fun stories.
Introduction by Twomorrow's publisher John Morrow. Afterward by columnist and author of the Kirby biography, Mark Evanier.
With a strong element of the fantastic in the form of haunted dreams and foes claiming to be figures of myth, these stories were the kind of fast-paced, slam-bang adventures that made Kirby and Simon famous.
