Joe Kubert

Born in 1926, Joe Kubert began his comics career at the age of eleven as an apprentice in Harry "A" Chesler's comic book production house. He worked in the industry for the rest of his life, and in his more than sixty years in the field he produced countless memorable stories for countless characters, including DC's Hawkman, Tarzan, Enemy Ace, Batman and the Flash. Kubert also edited, wrote and illustrated the DC title SGT. ROCK, which, beginning under its original title OUR ARMY AT WAR, he contributed to for thirty years.

In 1952, Kubert was a principal in the creation of the first 3-D comic book (Three Dimension Comics Vol. 1, No. 1), and his pioneering development of 3-D comics continued with the early appearances of what would become his best-known creation - a heroic caveman named Tor and his adventures "One Million Years Ago." Kubert was also one of the first creators to embrace the long-form version of comics that became known as graphic novels, with his first two works in this medium being a graphic novel of Tor and the war adventure Abraham Stone. In 1996 he produced Fax From Sarajevo, a gripping graphic narrative that earned him accolades in the mainstream and trade press alike. He followed that success with two more historical graphic novels - Yossel- April 19, 1943 (2003) and Jew Gangster- A Father's Admonition (2005) - as well as crafting two new adventures for DC's iconic soldier with SGT. ROCK- BETWEEN HELL AND A HARD PLACE (2003) and SGT. ROCK- THE PROPHECY (2007).

Kubert was also a pioneer in the realm of comics education. In 1976 he founded the first accredited school devoted solely to the art of cartoon graphics- The Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art in Dover, New Jersey, which has since produced many of today's leading cartoonists. Pursuing this educational path further, in 1998 he established a series of correspondence courses under the banner of Joe Kubert's World of Cartooning, and in 1999 Watson-Guptill published his book Superheroes- Joe Kubert's Wonderful World of Comics, a guide to the art of creating powerful comic book characters. Two of his five children, Adam and Andy, have also achieved great popularity as comic book artists. Joe Kubert passed away on August 12, 2012.

Darwyn Cooke

Darwyn Cooke was an Eisner Award-winning cartoonist and animator. After spending several years as a magazine art director and graphic designer, Cooke switched careers and began working in animation, where he contributed to such shows as Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series and Men In Black: The Series. From there, DC Comics approached Cooke to write and illustrate a project that the artist had submitted to the company years earlier - Batman: Ego. The critical success of the title led to more freelance work, including the relaunch of the Catwoman series with writer Ed Brubaker (which inspired Cooke to write and draw the graphic novel Catwoman: Selina's Big Score). Cooke then spent several years writing and drawing the ambitious epic The New Frontier, a six-issue miniseries bridging the gap between the end of the Golden Age of comics and the beginnings of the Silver Age.
