The Kubert School - Inaugural Founder's Day

I am honored to be invited to speak at a private event at The Kubert School, its Inaugural Founder's Day to celebrate the history & legacy of JOE KUBERT on Friday, September 16th! Kubert entered the comic book field in the 1940s as a teenager, and went on to become one of the legendary figures of the medium, whose style is unmistakable and unforgettable, the most expressive pen-and-brush comic book artist of his generation. Can't wait to present that to The Kubert School's students & faculty! www.kubertschool.edu
