Dojo Classics - The Newsboy Legion Volume Two!

DC has finally released the second volume of the Newsboy Legion yarns from the Golden Age pages of Star Spangled Comics. Now truth told this tome will be of less interest to Jack Kirby purists since it features the work of the talents who followed Joe Simon and Jack Kirby on the feature as it lingered on within the DC universe from the years 1944 to 1947. I haven't read these stories yet, but just glancing through the pages shows that the craftsmanship does slip a little on these. I was very impressed with the stories in the first volume and I'm sure there are some dandy ones here as well. When I finally find time, this one will have to get a good reading.

UPDATE: I have since read this volume and enjoyed it mightily. It's not Simon and Kirby, but the spirit of the duo are well on display. 

Rip Off
