Word came out today that comic legend Joe Kubert has passed on.
He was born in September 18, 1926. He was a true icon and gentleman in the industry. To say he will be missed is a drastic understatement. Few men will ever have a legacy like Mr. Kubert has. He spent so many years creating truly amazing comics. And dedicated so much of his time seeing to the future of the industry he loved. Along with his sons and may other talented creators he founded the Kubert school. An institution designed to teach the next generation of comic artists.
I did not know him personally. But I know of him and I have had books from him to learn from. I cannot say how much I am going to miss him and his work. The world is better for having had him here for the time we did.
God bless you Mr. Kubert. And may God bless the family and friends and fans he leaves behind.
