One of the absolute giants of the comic book art world, Joe Kubert, shuffled off this mortal coil yesterday (August 12, 2012) at the age of 85. There’s not much I can say about Kubert personally. I met him only once in passing. I can say how much I loved TOR and his war comics, including THE UNKNOWN SOLDIER, which I had a chance to make my own (with no disrespect to the original, I hope). But there have been some absolutely lovely tributes across the internet and the least I can do is aggregate my favorites here in case you haven’t stumbled on them on your own.
