The Comic Art Tribute to Joe Simon & Jack Kirby
21st Century Archives - 1994

Notes:  A factory set of 50 DiamondChrome cards was available to winners of a mail-in
contest. Contrary to the title, more of the set is devoted to Kirby than to Simon, and
quite a few other artists provided artwork.  The titles shown were often identified
only in the checklist distributed with the set. Thanks much to Bob Smith for the update!
