New Kirby - Adventures of the Fly

Apparently Archie has just released a collection of the four issues of ADVENTURES OF THE FLY. Quite a bit on Kirby work in those, most of it either never reprinted before or only in a few extremely hard to find books. Reportedly the reproduction is quite good.

THE ADVENTURES OF THE FLY VOLUME 1 TP
by Various
The latest entry in the Red Circle reprint series! This historic edition highlights one of the pioneering superhero titles of the Silver Age: The Fly! Tommy Troy is a young boy whose world is turned upside down when he meets an emissary of the Fly World and is given a special ring that magically transforms him into the superhuman Fly! Considered an early prototype for Spider-Man, The Fly’s earliest adventures were charted by some of the most legendary creative talent in comics: Jack Kirby, Joe Simon, Jack Davis, and Al Williamson! All of these artists and more are featured in this special edition that collects titanic tales from 1959 and 1960! Features a cover by fan-favorite, Joe Staton, painstaking restorations of all stories, faithful re-coloring and a foreword by Joe Simon!
SC, 7x10, 96pg, FC $12.95
