voice of the comics medium - pays tribute to the late, great Joe Kubert in
a 160-page, double-sized extravaganza! Squeezed between Kubert homage covers by
Sergio Cariello and Tim Truman, this Summer Special is entirely devoted to the
legendary comics creator who passed away in 2012. Included are comprehensive
examinations of each facet of Joe's career: Golden Age fan-favorite artist, 3-D
comics pioneer, pre-eminent war delineator, top artist-as-editor, incomparable
Tarzan writer and artist, founder of the Kubert School, graphic novelist,
P*S magazine helmsman, father to a comics creator dynasty, and
inspiration to generations of aspiring artists - replete with interviews
with the master from over the years, plus rarely-seen artwork and artifacts.
Editor Jon B. Cooke (of the Eisner Award-winning Comic Book Artist
magazine) has also assembled testimonials, remembrances, portraits,
anecdotes, pin-ups, and mini-interviews by peers, faculty, students, fans,
friends, and family, with special emphasis on a history of the Kubert School,
its illustrious alumni, and Joe's impact as instructor.
