“You should be able to tell any story without color or word balloons– that’s storytelling.” Joe Kubert  September 18, 1926 – August 12, 2012

And Mr. Kubert surely should know.  He was the creator of many classic characters, including Sgt. Rock and Hawkman and Hawkgirl, as seen above, and he could tell a story like nobody’s business.  And what a draftsman!  People who know much more about comics and comics history than I do rank him among the titans.

Me, I just stare at his covers with my mouth hanging open.
