Moderator Jesse_O private msg quote post Address this user
Marvel is going to be putting up a 13 foot statue of Captain America. This petition is for the to engrave Kirby and Simon's names on it. I'd encourage everyone who loves Cap to sign it!!

Done.
Unfortunate a petition was even needed. It's the right thing to do.

Maybe it isn't needed. Perhaps Marvel had planned to put their names on it all along.

The only released image of the statue shows no mention of Simon or Kirby, just a line from "The First Avenger" movie. SMH

A worthy cause for two comic book legends. Also signed.

I've been sharing the petition everywhere, but I'd just like to note that the FB 'Comic Book Collecting' group (30,000 strong membership) deleted the post. Twice.

.. it's not as if Joe Jimon and Jack Kirby have ever contributed to Comics in any way.

Just an FYI, the guy who deleted them is a fella that goes by the name of Derek Jenkins. If you're a part of the FB group, you may want to air your views.

Great job Ken!! Thanks for helping to get the word out. I see there are now 511 signatures. I'd of figured there would be more by now. But I guess we live in an age now where the aesthetics of a label is more upsetting then seeing comic book icons getting slighted by big business. Never thought I'd see the day.

This is the first I heard about it 😢 I was getting ready to sign but I guess I'm happy that it isn't necessary. Still pretty crummy a petition was even needed. Should have been a no-brainer.
