Fighting American #1 From Titan Comics Will Debut On Joe Simon's Birthday, October 11th

Titan Comics are publishing a new Fighting American series in October, the character created by the late Captain America creators Joe Simon and Jack Kirby in 1954 as a response to Timely/Atlas Comics (the precursor to Marvel) revamping Captain Americain a new series without them.

So they decide to create another patriotically themed character, Fighting American. to show Atlas how to actually do the character. Initially an anti-Communist screed, it flipped into a superhero satire with the second issue. The new series debuts on October 11th, the date of Joe Simon's birthday and during Jack Kirby's 100th birthday
