RIP, Joe Simon...


From CNN:

Joe Simon, the co-creator of star-spangled comic book hero Captain America, has died at 98, his family announced.

Simon, a writer, editor and artist, passed away late Wednesday in New York after a short illness.

Simon and artist Jack Kirby, who ran a studio, developed the character in the early 1940s and worked outside the box to develop a distinct design.

"Together, the team created Captain America as well as long list of characters, including The Newsboy Legion and The Boy Commandos," a statement Thursday from Simon's family said.

A Marvel Comics website provides a summary of Captain America and his superhero quest.

"In World War II, patriotic soldier Steve Rogers, recipient of the 'Super Soldier Serum,' became the living symbol of freedom, Captain America. Left for dead while frozen in ice, the star-spangled hero with an indestructible shield awoke years later to continue his never-ending battle for liberty."

The movie "Captain America: The First Avenger" was released this year. Chris Evans, in the title role, went up against villain Red Skull, played by Hugo Weaving.

Kirby and Simon created Captain America for Timely Comics, Marvel's predecessor. The comic was a huge hit during World War II.

With Captain America came some of Kirby's comic book innovations, Mark Evanier, author of the book "Kirby: King of Comics," told CNN in 2008.

Comic books, which had started as reprints of newspaper comic strips, had adhered to that form's look of repetitious boxes. Kirby and Simon used different-sized panels, varying shapes, even full pages.

"They kind of invented things that made comic books different than strips," Evanier said. They realized they "had the whole page to play with. ... They'd take three or four pages for a single action scene."

The popular genres after the war were crime and horror comics, and Simon and Kirby created a handful, including the dramatically named "Justice Traps the Guilty." They also pioneered the romance genre, juxtaposing Kirby's innately thrilling style with primly dressed women and men in neat suits and sweaters.

Simon served a few stints at DC Comics.

"Joe Simon was a true legend in the comic book industry. So much of what we are today is owed to him and his amazing creativity," said Dan DiDio, co-publisher of DC Entertainment. "In addition to one of the great writers of the Golden Age, he was also an editor at DC Comics. We appreciate all of his contributions to DC Comics and the industry as a whole, both on the page and behind the scenes."

The writer's passing came a week after the death of cartoonist Jerry Robinson, who worked on the earliest Batman comics and claimed credit for creating the super-villain The Joker. Robinson was 89.

Simon is survived by two sons, three daughters and eight grandchildren.

Operation Gratitude


Toward the end of every year, I sort through my comics, deciding which ones I'm likely to ever re-read. The others--rather than letting them take up space and gather dust--I try to give away to friends, family, or anybody who will read them and enjoy them.

This ear, I'm going to do something different, though. Mark Sable (Graveyard of Empires) has suggested a great charity that will ship comics (and other items) to troops overseas: Operation Gratitude.

Here's what they do:

“Operation Gratitude annually sends 100,000 care packages filled with snacks, entertainment items and personal letters of appreciation addressed to individually named U.S. Service Members deployed in hostile regions, to their children left behind and to Wounded Warriors recuperating in Transition Units. Our mission is to lift morale, bring a smile to a service member’s face and express to our Armed Forces the appreciation and support of the American people. Each package contains donated product valued at ~$125 and costs the organization $15 to assemble and ship.  For safety and security, assembling of packages occurs at the Army National Guard armory in Van Nuys, California. Since its inception in 2003, Operation Gratitude volunteers have shipped more than 660,000 packages to American Military deployed overseas.”

If you'd like to donate comics or other times, you can learn more on their website. For more ways you can help out, click here.

The Future is Here: Marvel Point One



Now that Fear Itself is wrapping up, Marvel is launching more stories with Marvel Point One. This one-shot reveals glimpses of Marvel's major story lines for the coming year, including the return of the Phoenix Force, the rise of Ultron, and new books featuring Scarlet Spider and the Defenders.

According to Marvel's executive editor Tom Brevoort, "Point One is a massive one-shot of 64 all-new pages of story by the top creators in the business, setting the stage for the biggest stories coming in 2012. It is the starting point to what’s in store for the world’s most iconic characters and startling events. Point One serves as the launch pad for dynamic new series, the return of fan-demanded characters, and a shocking teaser that will have everyone talking. See how all it comes together in one gigantic epic!”

So if you love the Marvel Universe, or if you're new to Marvel and looking for a good "jumping on point," Marvel Point One is a great buy.

Mansions of Madness

Mansions of Madness is a new horror-themed board game from Fantasy Flight Games, the same company that produces Arkham Horror. Players work together to explore a haunted house (the layout of which changes from game to game), kill monsters, and discover dread secrets. Meanwhile the keeper works against the players, summoning creatures, casting spells, and persuing his own nefarious goals.

I ran a couple games of MoM for our Havenween party. It takes a while to set up, but gameplay is smooth and, with only one die to roll, a breeze to pick up. It comes with some good-looking miniatures and has several clever mechanics. A favorite of mine is that, when confronted with a locked door or some such, a player doesn't just make an intelligence roll. Instead, she has to solve actual logic puzzles, getting as many chances as she has intelligence points.

Mansions of Madness is great for people ready for a challenging game and Lovecraftian horror. It's available now at Haven. Come in and check it out.

To learn more, here's a long review from Board Game Geek.

Thor: Heaven and Earth #1 (OF 4) – Written by PAUL JENKINS Art & Cover by ARIEL OLIVETTI In the days before the terrible events of Ragnarok, the Gods of Asgard stare across the ramparts of their city towards a massive, demonic army massed at the gates - the prophesied End of All Days is about to begin. As the armies of darkness begin their initial attacks, Thor confronts Loki, who is destined to usher in the fall of Asgard. But what he learns from the Loki may change the way he sees his treacherous half-brother. For perhaps this terrible event is a time also of renewal. Perhaps in this desperate hour even the God of Lies has a purpose.

This intense thriller will keep you guessing every step of the way.

Dollhouse: Epitaphs #1 (OF 5) – The fight for free will starts now! Alpha was the perfect product of Rossum Corporation's mind-altering technology, until he snapped, burdened by the dozens of personalities they'd downloaded into his brain. Now the technology has gone viral, turning the entire population into murderous automatons, and it's up to the psychotic Alpha and a small group of survivors to save mankind.

Loose Ends #1 (OF 4) – No one seemed to notice Sonny Gibson as he stepped back into 'The Hideaway,' a dusty little honky-tonk nestled off the Carolina highway. But before the night was over, Sonny would be on the run. From the law, from the criminals, even from himself. Loose Ends is a gritty, slow cooked, 'southern crime romance' that follows a winding trail down Tobacco Road, through the war torn streets of Baghdad, and into the bright lights and bloody gutters of South Florida.

X-Men: Schism #1 (OF 5) – The X-Men event of the decade starts here! It's never been a more dangerous time to be a mutant. Even with their numbers at a record low, the world refuses to trust mutantkind...and after a mutant-triggered international incident, anti-mutant hatred hits new heights. Of course it's at this moment, when the mutant race needs most to stand together, that a split begins that will tear apart the very foundation of the X-Men. From superstar writer and Marvel Architect Jason Aaron and a full roster of comics' top artists, this is an X-tale that will reverberate for years to come! Come October, the X-Men landscape will be irreparably changed.
