I am an admirer of his body of work. One of my favorite TPBs in my collection is Archie's Adventures of the FLY TPB. It includes all of the Simon and Kirby issues of the FLY. What great imagination! What coolly drawn action panels!

If anyone has any pull with Archie, can a deal be sorted out between the owners of Archie Comics and the estates of both Simon and Kirby to creat a Lancelot Strong TPB? It can include both issues of the DOUBLE LIFE OF PRIVATE LANCELOT STRONG and the 1980s Shield/Shield-Steel Sterling/Steel Sterling stories (I remember even in the last couple issues of Steel Sterling there were tributes to Lancelot Strong in the form of back up stories). It would be a great volume to include to the Simon and Kirby legacy!

Maybe Archie can work with Simon's son/estate to add digital comics of some of these Simon/Kirby characters on line? Imagine more new stories featuring the Fly, Lancelot Strong, and other characters! The advantage of digital is that there is no print publication risk.
