Say It Ain't So, Joe

Tuesday Returning Favor.

This week industry giant and the longest working comic artist Joe Kubert died. Though his fame these days usually comes from his later DC work on the war and adventure comic or the impressive graphic novels he did in the last few years, I have always been a fan of his earliest work (let's say, between 1945 and 1955) and have given it a lo of attention here. Anyone stumbling upon this blog due to Mr. Kubert's death may want to follow the labels to see some of those. To honor his career, I have chosen to show some more of those earlier, forgotten strips. In the early fifties he did a run on C.B (crimebuster), the lead strip in Lev Gleson's Boy Comics. I had shown two of those stories earlier, but here are the first four in full. Others may follow.
