Joe Kubert 1926-2012

I was saddened to hear that legendary comic creator Joe Kubert passed on August 12. Younger comic creators that don't know his work should really seek it out, he was a master of his craft.

I sadly, only really began to appreciate his work in the past 10 years or so. His work is brilliant, exciting and full of heart... exactly what I believe great comics should be.

I count myself very fortunate, as I was lucky enough to chat with him briefly at Supanova 2010 in Sydney. He was a gentleman, insightful and very generous with this old fanboy.

Supanova 2010... thanks to Tim McEwen for introducing me to Mr Kubert.
