Joe Kubert was a prominent cartoonist, graphic novelist and illustrator. He was the founder and president of the Kubert School for cartoon and graphic arts in New Jersey. His extraordinary career spans the history of the comic book in America- he began drawing comics in 1938, just as Superman made his debut in Action Comics #1, and continued to be one of the most vital cartoonists in the history of the industry, writing and drawing both mainstream comic book characters as well as, more recently, graphic novels of his own conception. Kubert began his career at the early age of 12; his long list of well-loved cartoon figures includes Abraham Stone, Tarzan, Flash, Batman, Superman and the X-Men.
Praise for the original Dark Horse Archive Editions of Joe
"Long a Tarzan fan himself, Kubert leapt at the chance to delineate the (Tarzan) series in 1972 while working at DC Comics, and the results are simply stunning. This is grandly entertaining stuff for both old and new readers alike; a cornucopia of excitement that has not aged a day, collected in an edition that can be reread and savored for years to come." -Publishers Weekly
