SIMON & KIRBY BOYS' RANCH COVER GALLERY...
It's surprising to learn that one of the much-lauded JOE SIMON
& JACK KIRBY comicbooks of the 1950s only lasted for 6 issues.
Was it the brevity of its run that engendered the warm affection in which
the series was later held, or was it truly a significant title fully deserving of
its exalted and legendary status? When I first read these stories in the early
'90s, I must confess that I was hardly overwhelmed, but I intend to re-read
them and see if they're worthy of the plaudits they receive in the history
books. I'll let you know, but perhaps you had to be a kid back in the
'50s to fully appreciate these mags, as the things of one's youth
can often seem better than they actually are.
If you read these mags back in the day (or more recently),
feel free to share your insights, opinions and observations in the
comments section. For the moment 'though, just enjoy looking
at these 6 classic cowboy covers from 60-plus years ago.
