70 YEARS AGO TODAY DC uses Kirby's name to commit fraud.

Someone signed "Simon & Kirby" on this cover, but Overstreet would reveal the crime a half century later... (although it didn't identify who the talented forger was.)

71 YEARS AGO TODAY you might have been able to buy the eighth consecutive issue of BOY COMMANDOS with a Kirby cover

Sadly, it was at least the second issue not to have any interior art by Kirby.
"NOTE- Most issues signed by Simon & Kirby are not by them."  (1999-2015 OVERSTREET PRICE GUIDE)

73 YEARS AGO TODAY if you were a Kirby fan hopefully you didn't miss his 6th consecutive cover for ADVENTURE COMICS.

There were also two Kirby-drawn stories inside. The 9 page Manhunter story wouldn't be reprinted for 30 years and it would be 67 years before the Sandman story would be published again!!!
