The Flying Fool lands at NUELOW Games!

The creative and editorial team of Jack Kirby and Joe Simon not only brought the world Captain America, but it brought us the first romance comics, helped develop the visual language of horror comics, and put any number of foundation stones for both comic book art form and comic book industry in place.

With out latest release, NUELOW Games throws the spotlight on Simon & Kirby's fantastic talents by collecting their run on "Link Thorne: The Flying Fool" in its entirety. The pair took a series that could generously be described as lackluster, and filled it with so much life and energy that the seven episodes they wrote and drew carried the series for an additional 16 episodes after they moved onto other projects.

Link Thorne: The Flying Fool is not only a must-read for fans of well-done comics, but for those who love B-movies from the 1930s and 1940s, because each installment feels more like one of those movies than it does a comic book story. In addition to the comics, the book also contains a ROLF! scenario and game stats for key Flying Fool characters--as well as for Jack Kirby and Joe Simon!

You can get Link Thorne: The Flying Fool at DriveThruComics, DriveThruRPG, and RPGNow.
