The Strange World of Your Dreams

The hardcover volume of The Strange World of Your Dreams is now available. It reprints stories from the offbeat Joe Simon and Jack Kirby series that ran four issues in the 1950s.

I used to own a couple of the comic book issues and it's nice to see these stories again. I would never rail against a book of Jack Kirby comics but I do wish that this had been an archival reprinting of the four original issues in their entirety rather than just a smattering of the stories.

Oh well. The Jack Kirby artwork is fabulous and the Ben Oda lettering is a treat. Plus, the cover of the book is soft-padded like a pillow. Great book!
