Joe Simon's Jack Kirby Artwork

Remember the Alamo! The above drawing was penciled and inked by Jack Kirby and lettered by Ben Oda. This double-page splash was published in 1951's Boys' Ranch #6 and the image shown was recently photographed from the original artwork. But wait, there's more to the story! If you are reading this before November 16, 2012, you have a chance to OWN this splendid artwork.

The estate of Mr. Kirby's longtime partner Joe Simon is sending to auction a number of fabulous pages of Kirby artwork that have been in Mr. Simon's possession for decades. I invite you to visit Heritage Auctions at and type Jack Kirby into their search bar. You will be amazed at what you see next.

I first heard of the impending auction of these many pages of great artwork over on Harry Mendryk's Simon and Kirby Blog. Harry is an old friend of The Hayfamzone Blog as you can read again over here, and I especially encourage you to read Harry's excellent treatise on the Remember the Alamo! spread right over here.
