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.

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.
Jack "King" Kirby's comics career began in 1937 and continued for nearly six decades. After his fruitful collaboration with Joe Simon ended in the late 1950s, Kirby joined Marvel Comics, where the first issue of Fantastic Four cemented his reputation as comics' preeminent creator. A slew of famous titles followed that elevated Kirby to legendary status, including Incredible Hulk, Avengers and X-Men. Kirby returned to DC in 1971 with his classic "Fourth World Trilogy," which was followed by THE DEMON, KAMANDI and OMAC. Kirby continued working and innovating in comics until his death in 1994.
