RIP Joe Kubert (comic book artist)

I was never a particular fan of his work, but I recognize his place among the greats.


He did some very nice and very faithful supersized versions of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan novels- or, at least, I loved them when I was 13 or so.

So, thanks, Joe!

Damn. I was going to say the same thing. The work he did for the DC Tarzan adaptation was stronger than the Gold Key adaptations, and I much prefered it to the later Marvel ones.
Are the still going to run tyhose ads for the Joe Kubert Art School, with his drawings on them?

Joe Kubert’s work on Tarzan was genius.

Loved his take on Sgt. Rock, too.

astorian, the supersized versions you read (I read them, too) were compilations of Kubert’s work in the monthly Tarzan comic. (Beginning with issue 207, IIRC.)

Lively adaptations of Burroughs’s work, I thought.
