    I hate doing these sort of write ups. Comics legend, Joe Kubert, dead at 85.

    He was an amazing man. He's contributed so much to the industry, including opening up the Kubert School in New Jersey in 1976. Take a look at all the issues he worked on here. He will be missed. We would like to share our condolences to the Kubert family and friends.

    Update

    Statement from DC Entertainment.

    We are saddened to learn of the death of our colleague and friend Joe Kubert. An absolute legend in the industry, his legacy will live on through his remarkable talent, with his sons and with the many artists who have passed through the storied halls of his celebrated school. An important member of the DC Comics family, Joe made an indelible mark on the entire DC Comics universe including his renowned and award-winning work on iconic characters such as Sgt. Rock, Enemy Ace, Hawkman and most recently Nite Owl. We are so honored to have worked side-by-side with such an unforgettable force in both comics and in life.

    Met him at Comicpalooza just a couple months ago. Took a brochure for his school, and shook his hand. He will be missed. :(

    The great Joe Kubert was before my time yet I greatly follow and love the work of his sons and they wouldn't be where they are today without dear ol' dad. I've checked out a bit of his work over the years and I can mos def see where his talent has influenced not only the work of his sons but many others in the industry. Another comic and artist legend will be missed and my heart goes out to his family and friends. RIP Joe Kubert...your legacy lives on and is in great hands.

    It's a a old cliche, but I think it's appropriate considering Mr Kubert love for Sgt Rock.

    I have never heard of this guy, and I dislike most of the characters he's created. I'm not gonna say he had an influence on me (at least to my knowledge) but it's still sad to hear that he's passed. A lot of these early comic writers and artists were just really cool PEOPLE, and it's always a shame when we lose someone who's really just a great person.

    I recently reread Tor and it has held up pretty well.

    At the time (last year or earlier this year) I couldn't believe there was no Joe Kubert page (or a blank one) here on ComicVine - so I filled it in, little did I know that it wouldn't be up for very long before his passing. :(
