Default Joe Kubert R.I.P (1926-2012)

Comics Industry legend Joe Kubert has passed away at the age of 85.

Perhaps best known as artist of DCs Hawkman and Sgt. Rock, according to his biography on the website of the art school he founded in 1976 New Jerseys The Kubert School Kubert began drawing comic book professionally at the age of 12 in 1938. He also created, with Norman Maurer, the prehistoric character and book Tor. His long, distinguished career has included drawing, writing, editing and teaching, including fully writing and illustrating original graphic novels in the past several years.
He of course is the father of artists Andy and Adam Kubert, both celebrated comic book artists as well...

Are you BD's chief obituary writer or something? All you ever seem to do is announce the death of celebrities! Fantastic hobby you've got there.

I'm sorry it seems to annoy you so much, I was just passing on entertainment news I seen and nobody else was posting about it.
