Heartbreaking news… Joe Kubert has passed away

Guys, I just found out some news that is absolutely breaking my heart…

Joe Kubert, the comic book artist legend, and creator of the ever awesome Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Design ( my old trade school ), here in New Jersey, has passed away at the young age of 85.

My heart goes out to Adam, Andy, his wife, and the rest of his family. INCLUDING every single one of his extended family in the comic art world and every single ex, future, and current, “QB”. In a sense, he was QB’s grandfather, and a HUGE inspiration to every single one of us.

I’m going to keep my eyes and ears open for any services. If anyone hears anything about a public service here in NJ, since he lived just over in Dover ( about a 20 minute drive from my house ), please give me a poke. I don’t care if I’m scheduled to work that day, I WILL call out and attend the service.

Joe, I ‘m going to miss seeing you every year at New York Comic Con!

Going to have to stop by the school this week.
