THURSDAY, AUGUST 4th @ 5:30pm EST:
Of all the giants of the comic book art medium, Joe Kubert’s unmistakable and unforgettable style made him perhaps the most expressive pen-and-brush artist of his generation!
Kubert entered the comic book field in the 1940s as a teenager drawing Hawkman for DC Comics. in the early ’60s, Kubert maintained continuity with his ’40s roots by returning to the character, who has been rendered by many artists since, but given his most definitive treatment by Kubert, despite a brief run of only six issues.
Kubert’s name and style became synonymous with war comics during The Silver Age of Comics (1956-70) because of years of service drawing World War II’s heroic American Sgt. Rock, and then later, the offbeat antihero, World War I German flyer Enemy Ace. Both became signature characters; Kubert’s gritty pen line and bold brushwork perfectly suited writer and partner Bob Kanigher’s emotionally wrenching writing.
So come join comic book art historian Arlen Schumer (author/designer, The Silver Age of Comic Book Art) as he presents an overview of Kubert’s illustrious Silver Age career, dynamically displaying his comic book panels, pages and covers so that you’ll feel like you’re seeing them for the first time!
