    1966 letter from Jim Steranko to Joe Simon about Steranko’s creations for the Simon-edited Harvey Thriller line of superheroes, including Spyman and Sorcerer.

    In the letter, Steranko insists to Simon—who’d co-created Captain America co-creator a quarter century earlier but was now aiming to compete with Marvel Comics—that they should utilize a tongue-in-cheek tone. “It is, incidentally, one of the reasons Marvel has done so well with their line of comics.”

    Within a few months, Steranko would quit Harvey and begin working for Marvel. (You can read more about this, of course, in Marvel Comics: The Untold Story.)
