Fighting American and Speedboy-Joe Simon-1955

Here we have Simon and Kirby's fifties redo of Captain America as an over-the-top, anti-Commuinist parody. This, however, is a little-seen non-Kirby story from the final issue of Fighting American's original run. I definitely see Joe Simon's hand here and on GCD Greg Theakston confirms my first thought that there's no Kirby involvement in the art. Simon probably just inked someone else from their studio. A fun and colorful story, though.
