Rest in Peace Joe Kubert

Recommended Posts

So sad. A brilliant artist, teacher, awesome father to two talented artists.

His covers for various war comics are so good. And I don't even like war comics.

 

Also, and what I think is most important, he leaves a grand legacy via his school with alumni such as Bissette, Dave Dorman, Scott Kolins, Alex Maleev, Tom Mandrake, Rags Morales, Tim Truman and Rich Veitch

A true hero.

 

Talking of standing on the shoulders of giants:

 

DC Comics statement

"We are saddened to learn of the death of our colleague and friend Joe Kubert. An absolute legend in the industry, his legacy will not only live on with his sons, but with the many artists who have passed through the storied halls of his celebrated school. His latest work on BEFORE WATCHMEN: NITE OWL was among his best, and we are so honored to have worked side-by-side with such an unforgettable force in both comics and in life." - DC Entertainment Executive Team

And now it has been corrected somewhat

"We are saddened to learn of the death of our colleague and friend Joe Kubert. An absolute legend in the industry, his legacy will live on through his remarkable talent, with his sons and with the many artists who have passed through the storied halls of his celebrated school. An important member of the DC Comics family, Joe made an indelible mark on the entire DC Comics universe including his renowned and award-winning work on iconic characters such as Sgt. Rock, Enemy Ace, Hawkman and most recently Nite Owl. We are so honored to have worked side-by-side with such an unforgettable force in both comics and in life." - DC Entertainment Executive Team.

Didn't DC just schedule a new Joe Kubert anthology comic?

 

I really like his work as artist on Hawkman.

Tor and Viking Prince were both good too.
