www.afnews.info segnala: Joe Kubert (18 September 1926, Poland – 12 August 2012, USA) was a comics artist and editor, art teacher, and founder of The Kubert School.

He is well-known for his work on the DC Comics characters ‘Sgt. Rock’ and ‘Hawkman’ and for his own creations, such as ‘Tor’, ‘Son of Sinbad’, and ‘Viking Prince’. With writer Robin Moore, he created the syndicated strip ‘Tales of the Green Beret’.

He was born in Poland in an area now part of the Ukraine and his family emigrated to the USA two months later. As a young teenager he began essentially apprenticing in the new comic-book industry.

He worked with the Chesler Studio and had work in titles from Holyoke, Quality, MLJ (now Archie Comics), and others.

In 1942, he began his life-long association with DC Comics by drawing features such as ‘Johnny Quick’, ‘Hawkman’, and ‘Sargon the Sorceror’.

In the mid-1950s, following his military service, he was managing editor at St. John. There he, his high-school friend Norman Maurer, and Norman’s brother Leonard Maurer produced the first 3-D comic books. He created ‘Tor’ there in 1954.

From the early 1960s, Kubert was a central figure in the Silver Age revival of DC Comics. He worked on seminal features such as ‘Viking Prince’ and co-created a new version of ‘Hawkman’ with writer Gardner Fox.

He and writer Robert Kanigher produced a large body of war stories, including the ‘Sgt. Rock’ stories and the memorable character ‘Enemy Ace’.

From 1967 to 1976, he was the Director of Publications at DC Comics. When DC acquired the license to Edgar Rice Burroughs properties in 1972, Kubert’s art defined the look of both “Tarzan” and “Korak, Son of Tarzan”.

In 1976, he and Muriel Kubert, his wife, established The Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art in Dover, New Jersey. Now called simply The Kubert School, it has developed a reputation for a demanding and intensive curriculum.

Kubert continued creating and teaching throughout his life. His honors include multiple Alley Awards and National Cartoonists Society Awards, and 1997 Eisner and Harvey awards for “Fax from Sarajevo”.

He was inducted into the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame (Harvey Awards) in 1997 and the Will Eisner Awards Hall of Fame in 1998. He received the Milton Caniff Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Cartoonists Society in 2009.

Comics creators Adam Kubert (born 6 October 1959) and Andy Kubert (born 27 February 1962) are his sons. Comics editor Katie Kubert is his granddaughter.
