TwoMorrows Publishing’s COMIC BOOK CREATOR #2 pays tribute to the late JOE KUBERT
TwoMorrows Publishing (the leading publisher of books and magazines for comics fandom) has just released its second issue of COMIC BOOK CREATOR, “The New Voice of the Comics Medium.” This double-sized trade paperback Annual debuts in stores worldwide on Wednesday, July 31, and is currently available from TwoMorrows’ website (www.twomorrows.com).
Squeezed between Kubert homage covers by SERGIO CARIELLO and TIM TRUMAN, this Summer Annual is entirely devoted to the legendary comics creator who passed away in 2012. Included are comprehensive examinations of each facet of Joe’s career: Golden Age fan favorite artist, 3-D comics pioneer, pre-eminent war delineator, top artist-as-editor, incomparable Tarzan writer and artist, founder of the Kubert School, graphic novelist, P*S magazine helmsman, father to a comics creator dynasty, and inspiration to generations of aspiring artists—replete with interviews with the master from over the years, plus rarely-seen artwork and artifacts. Editor JON B. COOKE has also assembled testimonials, remembrances, portraits, anecdotes, pin-ups and mini-interviews by peers, faculty, students, fans, friends and family, with special emphasis on a history of the Kubert School, its illustrious alumni, and Joe’s impact as instructor.
