Legendary two-fisted tales from comics' Golden Age are available in handsome hardcover editions for the first time ever!

The Nazi menace has fortified the entire European continent to repel any efforts at liberation. Uprooting these entrenched forces will take more than a navy, more than an air force, more than a mighty army - it will take the Commandos!

Led by Captain Rip Carter, the Commandos stand ready to strike at the enemy with devastating surprise anywhere in the world - and serving alongside these highly trained men are four irrepressible youths whose fighting spirit more than matches their elders' determination. Jan, Pierre, Alfy and Brooklyn - these are Joe Simon and Jack Kirby's Boy Commandos!

This second volume collects the Commandos' adventures from Detective Comics #74-85, World's Finest Comics #10-13 and Boy Commandos #3-5 together with an insightful introduction by Kirby chronicler John Morrow.

Jack Kirby

Jack Kirby was regarded as one of the major innovators of comic books as one of its most prolific and influential creators. He, along with Joe Simon and Stan Lee, created the highly successful superheroes such as Captain America, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, and the Hulk.

The Lee-Kirby titles garnered high sales and critical acclaim. Called "the William Blake of comics," in 1987 Kirby was one of the three inaugural inductees of the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame.

Marvel, not entirely happy with the end result of the Prisoner work by Kirby, decided to commission Steve Englehart to write the rest of the comic. He was known for his work for DC, Malibu, Eclipse Comics, Topps, Valiant and Warren Publishing and co-created Shang-Chi Master of Kung Fu for Marvel Comics.

Joe Simon

Joe Simon is the co-creator of heroes including Fighting America, The Boy Commandos and The Guardian. With his partner Jack Kirby, Simon came to DC Comics shortly after the pair created Captain America for Marvel Comics. The Simon and Kirby team would go on to fame as the originators of the romance comics genre, as well as innovating with war, Western and mystery titles before splitting up in the late 1950s.
