THE SAVAGE STYLE OF JOE KUBERT webinar via NY Adventure Club, Thursday, August 20 @ 1:00pm EST:
JOE KUBERT entered the comic book field in the 1940s as a teenager drawing for DC Comics. His name and style became synonymous with war comics during The Silver Age of Comics (circa 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.
In the early ’60s, Kubert maintained continuity with his ’40s roots by returning to Hawkman, a character rendered by many artists since, but given his most definitive treatment by Kubert, despite a brief run of only six issues.
What accounted for Kubert’s lasting popularity and legend-in-his-own-time status? Not too long before he passed away in 2012, Kubert said, ”I happen to love to draw. And I happen to love to draw comic books. I enjoy it as much now, probably more, than I did before.”
So come join New York Adventure Club and 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!
