DESCRIPTION
Joe Simon pencils/Jack Sparling inks; cover; 1966; image size 13" x 19"

Fabulously campy twice-up Harvey cover by Simon and Sparling (who likely shared inking duties on this piece), featuring the debut of Simon's newest creation, Jack Frost. This cover features Frost facing off with 'Lord Lazee... World's Laziest Villain', who appears here in a paste-up that is all original art. Wonderful drawing from the co-creator of Captain America. Pen and ink. Art is in excellent condition. The title and other text elements are all original, the Miracles Inc. panel by Wally Wood is a photostat.

Artists Information

Joseph Henry Simon was an American comic book writer, artist, editor, and publisher. Simon created or co-created many important characters in the 1930s–1940s Golden Age of Comic Books, such as Captain America, and served as the first editor of Timely Comics, the company that would evolve into Marvel Comics.

In the 1950s, he worked for companies like Harvey, Toby Press, Charlton and Ziff Davis, doing western, horror and romance titles. He also did syndicated strips like 'Mister Rubbles' and 'Sam Hill'. For Gilberton's Classics Illustrated, Sparling drew 'Robin Hood' and Mark Twain's 'A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court'. In the late 1960s, Sparling was additionally present in Eerie with several horror stories. From 1960 to 1972, he did the daily 'Honor Eden' for the McClure Syndicate. Jack Sparling remained active until the late 1980s. In the final stages of his comic book career, he worked mainly on Western Publishing titles like 'The Twilight Zone' and 'Turok', but he also did contributions to DC and Marvel titles.
