The Books Of Joe!
Alter Ego's look at the life and career of Joe Kubert hit the stands somewhat belatedly yesterday, but it looks fantastic. Since Twomorrows changed up its format and went to full color magazines, they frankly haven't lived up the promise, until now. This appears at first glance to be a lush visual feast for Kubert fans. I'm eager to tear into it this weekend.
Also on tap are the six issues of Joe Kubert Presents from DC. I've been avidly collecting these as they appeared on the stands, a series which began hitting the stands at about the time Kubert passed and quickly became a tiny monthly monument to the great comic book creator. The issues collect up new and old Kubert work from across the decades as well as offering up material by master Sam Glanzman and artist Brian Buniak.
And I don't own a copy of Weird Horrors and Daring Adventures the first volume in what are dubbed The Joe Kubert Archives, but I am sort of eager to get hold of one with Kubert on my mind. These are are early stories by Kubert in many genres. Compelling cover for sure for this Fantagraphics offering.
