Joe Kubert & Sons Exhibition

Above: DC Special #5, December 1969. 68 pages for 25 cents! Image from the Grand Comics Database.

Lots of Joe Kubert in the news! And why not? He is part of a museum show:

Michael Uslan is interviewed about the museum show "Reflecting Culture: The Evolution of American Comic Book Superheroes" at the Montclair Art Museum. Joe Kubert, and his sons, will have an exhibition of their comic book work. Bill Ervolino wrote the story for the North Jersey Media Group.

Comics Are a Kubert Family Legacy by Asbury Park Press writer Mark Voger.

Joe Kubert on the profession:

“Anyone who wants to do this,” he says, “has to be sitting at that drawing table anywhere from eight to 10 hours a day, six to seven days a week in order to achieve the kind of quality necessary to be deemed a professional."

-- from Drawing a Strong Living From Superheroes, a great profile of Joe Kubert and his school, which is, unfortunately, locked behind a subscription-only wall.

It's good to see that my former instructor is finally making something of himself :)
