Description

Seven years after the first volume was released, here are 32 more Golden Age stories, completing the entire run of this popular strip–the cover feature in Star Spangled Comics. Never before collected, with an insightful introduction by Jack Kirby historian John Morrow. In 1942 the creative team of Joe Simon and Jack Kirby was firing on all cylinders. Following their spectacular success with Captain America and the Sandman, anticipation for their next project was sky-high—and the two comics powerhouses did not disappoint when they unveiled the Newsboy Legion starring the Guardian!

With its bracing mix of streetwise urchins, graft-fueled gangsters and panel-busting action, the Newsboy Legion was an instant smash. The adventures of Gabby, Scrapper, Tommy, Big Words and Officer Harper ran for nearly five years and cemented Simon and Kirby’s reputations as two of the medium’s most innovative and prolific practitioners.

And after 24 years of absence, Kirby brought back the kids in the 1970s in Jimmy Olsen comics. “…an inspired move. After all, who else would a cub reporter like Jimmy Olsen spend his time hanging out with, other than a bunch of kids who make their living hawking newspapers on street corners? And while these tales took readers to wild, mind-boggling settings, the core idea–a group of savvy street kids getting into fixes, and having to use their wits, dukes, and humor to get out of them–always stayed true to the spirit of the classic (mis-)adventures you’ll find in this book.” -John Morrow, 2017.
