Today’s Guest: Bill Schelly, author, Man of Rock: A Biography of Joe Kubert
Artist Joe Kubert’s lines are among the most distinctive in the comic book profession, not in the least because there are so many of them!
Kubert’s work is intensely detailed and stylized, whether he’s drawing “Sgt. Rock” from World War II or “Tor” from One Million Years B.C. Fans can spot his product from ten paces the same way that Jack Kirby, Will Eisner, Jim Lee or Frank Miller stand out like quality beacons from the newsstand shelves.
In his new, richly researched book, Man of Rock: A Biography of Joe Kubert, author Bill Schelly takes a long overdue look at the life and career of one of the comic book industry’s most enduring, successful and beloved icons.
