ANOTHER MASTER OF COMIC BOOK ART LEAVES US:  THE GREAT JOE KUBERT (1926-2012). 

From his trail-blazing work originating in the Golden Age of Comics straight through to the modern age, Joe Kubert was an icon to comic book lovers everywhere.  He was also a mentor through his Joe Kubert School of Comic Book Art which taught countless artists their trade -- among them his talented sons who followed him into the comic book field.  Kubert worked on countless comic book characters but was particularly known as "THE" Hawkman artist as well as doing decades of sublime work on war comics from SGT. ROCK to ENEMY ACE.  This gallery of his artwork is only a tiny inkling of Joe Kubert's immense talent.

Ah Mr Kubert. His work always had a haunting quality; none more so than that on the unknown Soldier. He really was right up there with Kirby, Ditko,Wood,Kane and Colan
