The Art of Joe Kubert is a deluxe, full-color coffee table book that honors this legendary creator with beautifully reproduced artwork from every phase of his career as well as critical commentary by the book’s editor, comics historian and Kubert biographer Bill Schelly. Schelly’s text parallels the visual evolution of the artist’s work, tracing his life and career from his early days drawing Hawkman in the Golden Age, to his creation of Tor, his involvement in creating 3-D comics in the 1950s, his tour de force stints on DC’s war comics ― Sgt. Rock, The Unknown Soldier and the groundbreaking Enemy Ace ― in the 1960s, to illustrating the adventures of Tarzan in the 1970s. And before finding a creative safe haven at DC Comics in the ’50s, Kubert drew for many smaller and more obscure companies, including Holyoke, Quality, Fiction House, Harvey, St. John, and others ― all of which are represented, including a 50-page section of comic-book stories in the horror, crime, and SF genres from the pre-Comics Code era, reprinted in full color for the first time.

About the Author:

Bill Schelly is an Eisner-nominated comic-book and film historian; he lives in Seattle.

Review:

...[I]nformative and briskly engaging... In reviewing the vast panorama of Kubert's eight-decade career, The Art of Joe Kubert allows readers previously unfamiliar with the artist to share an appreciation of his abiding interest in human nature (as opposed to just superhero theatrics) through a surprising variety of storytelling styles and subject matter. --Casey Burchby

Fan/historian Bill Schelly... knows his stuff and it shows. This is the definitive biography of Joe Kubert, and I would say it is lavishly illustrated but the word 'lavishly' pales in comparison by even a quick flip-through of this 232-page tome. Pure and simple, this is the tribute that Joe deserves. --Mike Gold"

All aspects of Kubert's career are touched on in this tome, which is loaded with beautiful colour reproductions of its subject's artwork and complemented by a lengthy and insightful critical commentary . As with Fantagraphics' previous coffee table comic art books, The Art of Joe Kubert makes you want to see more all! of the artist's work. --Miles Fielder"

...[I]nformative and briskly engaging... ?In reviewing the vast panorama of Kubert's eight-decade career, The Art of Joe Kubert allows readers previously unfamiliar with the artist to share an appreciation of his abiding interest in human nature (as opposed to just superhero theatrics) through a surprising variety of storytelling styles and subject matter. --Casey Burchby"

The Kubert book offer[s] ample visual evidence of how [Kubert] found the 'art' in commercial art, turning work-for-hire assignments into opportunities to express [his] particular vision of the world. --Noel Murray"

The Art of Joe Kubert meticulously follows Kubert's awe-inspiring 70-year career It's filled with wonderful illustrations and full-color comics. [T]his whole collection has an air of professionalism that is only surpassed by its vital subject. [Rating] 8/10 --Kyle Lemmon"

The Art of Joe Kubert is probably the best DC book I read in September, and DC didn't even publish it. Fantagraphics did, and a wonderful job they did, from the raw materials to the book design and packaging. --Augie DeBlieck Jr."
