On August 12, 2012, the comic book industry lost another Golden Age luminary.
Joe Kubert, co-creator of Sgt. Rock, founder of the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art, now known as TheKubert School, and father of acclaimed comic book artists Adam and Andy Kubert, passed away at age 85. I urge everyone to take the opportunity to find some of his early work, and give it a look. There is a reason he remained a name in the industry for so long.
