Friday Comic Book Day.
I love the early work of Joe Kubert. What he is producing these days is pretty impressive as well, back in the late forties and early fifties when he was still using loads of inkin his lines, it had a mesmerizing quality for me. I have shown several samples of this work over the years, most recently from his late forties oddjobs for DC titles. After that he roamed for a bit doing work here and there. He ended up at St. John's doing his own imprint with Norman Maurer, including the 3D comic, Mad imitation Whack and Tor. When those failed, he flaundered for a bit, doing jobs for Stan Lee and in 1955 he worked for Norman Maurer's most important employer for many years, Gleason. He started doing stories for the later issues of Crime Does Not Pay and sonn added the lead story for Boy Comics (from #110 to #118). I have two of those stories here. It looks as if Bob Bean was involved, who worked with Kubert on serveral features at St. John's.
