Jews in the News: RIP Joe Simon

Joe Simon, the co-creator (along with fellow Jew Jack Kirby) of Captain America passed away yesterday at the age of 98. Simon, Jewish, is also credited with creating comics mainstays Captain Marvel, the (original) Sandman, and the Outsiders, amongst others.

He was, and continues to be, an inspiration to anyone who creates or enjoys comics and the many media that sprout from them. Though Simon is gone, his creations have proven everlasting.

We wish his loved ones and fans our deepest condolences on his passing.
