    crazy, I never knew who he was but drove by his school often in Dover, NJ, small world!

    I was a huge Sgt. Rock fan when I was a wee punk. His art work was gritty and real.

    I loved Joe Kubert. His sons aren’t bad either, but he was a real master.

    I could always find 12 cents for a Sargent Rock comic book in my younger days.

    Sgt. Rock was my absolute favorite comic as a kid.  I think my younger brothers even had some Sgt. Rock action figures. R.I.P. Joe Kubert.

  7. We have lost a truly Great ‘American Artist’  
    Rest in peace, Joe Kubert

    Those were great comics. And National Lampoon did a great tribute to him as one of their comic book inserts called “Sgt. Nick Penis and the Brass Balls Battalion” some time around ’75

    R.I.P. Joe,  and thank you.

    I remember Joe selling his latest (at the time) graphic novel, “Abraham Stone: Country Mouse City Rat” during the ComiCon and offering to draw anything on the flyleaf.

    Of course I requested Sgt. Rock and watched in awe as Joe effortlessly recreated Rock before my eyes. A truly legendary artist and one hell of a nice guy.

    I will miss you Joe.

    I hope you, Frank, Dave, Jack, Will and the rest are having some kickass drawing discussions and competitions.

  11. If you’re anything more than a casual fan of American comic books, Joe Kubert is recognizable not only for his World War II-themed comic books, but the famous school he ran that produced a long line of great comic book artists. He will be missed. :’-(

    I was just cleaning out some boxes at the home this weekend and found my stash of Sgt Rock comics.  Great artist but his talents live on by those he inspired.

    I have a Sgt Rock pint glass that i drink out of almost every day. Some of the first comics i owned were his, and he definitely made a big impact on me as an artist. Kubert was one of the industry’s biggest and best. We lost a real treasure, and he will be deeply missed.
