Rest in Peace: Joe Kubert (18 September 1926 – 12 August 2012)

From his precocious beginning in comics right up until his unexpected end, Joe Kubert drew with eyes of fire and a hand of rare mettle:


“Drawing never dies, it holds on by the skin of its teeth, because the hunger it satisfies – the desire for an active, investigative, manually vivid relation with the things we see and yearn to know about – is apparently immortal.”
Robert Hughes (28 July 1938 – 6 August 2012)
