Dave Gibbons har skrevet forordet til dette bind.
Den femte bog i serien, “Horror”, skal så udgives i 2013. Den vil bl.a. indeholde historier fra Black Magic og Strange World of Your Dreams.

In 2013, the fifth volume—The Simon and Kirby Library: Horror—will collect the duo’s terrifying stories from the acclaimed Black Magic title, made infamous when the series was singled-out on national television by the Senate Subcommittee on Juvenile Delinquency. The volume will also collect the stories they produced for the title Strange World of Your Dreams.
“It’s a thrill to be a New York Times bestseller for the first time in my life,” Joe Simon said shortly before his death. “I’m just grateful for the opportunity to breathe new energy into the work Jack and I did throughout our careers.”
“This is an honor for us, to be able to continue the ambitious publishing program we put together with Joe,” Titan Books Publisher Nick Landau said. “Relationships like that come once-in-a-lifetime, and we’ll make every effort to make certain these next two releases are books he would once again be proud of.”
The Simon and Kirby Library editions are restored by Harry Mendryk and produced by Titan Books under agreements with the Joe Simon and the Jack Kirby Estates. As such, they are the only restorations of these stories authorized by both. Previous editions have included The Best of Simon and Kirby and The Simon and Kirby Superheroes.
