Summary
  • A coming-of-age memoir about the author's relationship with her beloved grandfather Joe Simon, cartoonist and co-creator of Captain America
  • In the 1990s, Margulies's Upper West Side neighborhood was marked by addicts and burglaries, and her parents' one-bedroom apartment was hardly a respite. The midtown studio of her spirited grandfather, Daddy Joe, became a second home to her. His living room may have been dominated by the drawing table, notes, and doodles that marked him as Joe Simon the cartoonist, but he was a nonjudgmental voice and a steady presence in a world that felt off balance. Here she charts the life and career of Simon, from his early days to his partnership with Jack Kirby at Timely Comics (the forerunner of Marvel Comics), which resulted in the creation of beloved characters like Captain America, the Boy Commandos, and Fighting American. -- adapted from jacket
