Great interview. Joe is a class act. And funny too! He has done it all: writer, artist,editor. He has worked in so many genres & done all of them exceptionally well. My favorite Joe Kubert works are his Sgt Rock & Tarzan comics.
I suppose I shouldn't be, but I was surprised to read that Joe doesn't particularly like looking at (some of) his earlier work. I would hate to bother him, and I realize he wants to do other stuff, but.... I still think his Hawkman was the best ever. I wish we could get some new Hawkman stories out of him, to see how he'd handle the character NOW.
And, a big and resounding YES! to more work from the wonderful Sam Glanzman! He's one of my all-time favorites!
Excellent interview, way further than the traditional ones about the modern artists!!!!
One question: what is the PS magazine? Where to buy a copy?
I hope that the Sgt Rock new stories will be printed in the Vertigo verse than the GI Combat comic book which is a true epic failure like its predecessor. Or, maybe, this time DC has understand whci kind of war comic book its readers are waiting for!!!
I want a TRUE war comic book!!!! Not this actual 2.0 crap...
When you look at what it is still being published by DC Thomson in Scotland, Commando, DC Comics can take example from this pocket war comic book!!!!! When you go on the official web site, be ready to take a Kleenex box. You will cry!!!!
Growing up–and it's still pretty much true to this day–comics artists were my heroes. To me they're the equivalent of what sports heroes and rockstars are to others. And Joe Kubert stands on top of the mountain, along with only a very few other masters in the field. I'm very, very glad he's still alive, healthy, happy, and working.
Okay, enough with the compliments. Now back to my nefarious plan to somehow coerce him into producing a trilogy of Superman: Earth One-style Silver-Age Hawkman volumes.
