RIP JOE KUBERT
Okay, so another great from the classic era of American comics is gone, the like of which we won't see again. Are we really at that point where only Ditko is left?
Classic Kubert anecdote, being told off by Carmine Infantino for not wearing a tie to the DC offices. Everything you need to know about his art style is in there. I mean, just look at some, the seeming roughness which gives everything a vibrant urgency, yet not a single stroke out of place. He was one of those artists who could make it all look so easy, until you actually tried to copy him.
More about his career here from Tom Spurgeon, as if you needed it.
