New comic book releases 8/15/12

New comic book releases for the week of 8/15/12. Some great releases this week, but the bright and shiny joy of Wednesday comic book releases have been dimmed by the passing of one of the industries greats: Joe Kubert. Mr. Kubert was probably best known for contributions he made at DC Comics. Among those contributions, the creation of the character known as Sgt. Rock, The Unknown Soldier, Ragman, Enemy Ace and his popular work with the chracters of Hawkman and Hawkwoman as well as work on DC Comics The Haunted Tank and his historic run onTarzan (Dark Horse Comics collected his work in bound editions) during the 70’s.  In 1976 Mr. Kubert along with his wife founded the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art in Dover, New Jersey which has contributed to the artistic growth of some of the industries’ most talented. Individuals such as Dave Dorman (Eisner Award-winner), Amanda Conner (Penciler on the Supergirl strip in the Eisner Award-nominated Wednesday Comics), Steve Lieber (Eisner Award-winning artist on Whiteout: Melt, and co-author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Creating a Graphic Novel) and Jan Durrsema (Eisner and Russ Manning Award-winning comic book artist known for her work on the Star Wars comics franchise; She was the creator of Denin and Vila from Naldar, the Twi\’lek Jedi Aayla Secura and the Kiffar Jedi Quinlan Vos.; has also worked on Batman, Spider-Man, Wolverine and the X-Men.) all are alumni of the institution that Mr. Kubert founded.  A man of incredible talent who touched many lives with ability to inspire wonder, Joe Kubert will be missed. Joe Kubert passed away  Sunday morning August 12th at the age of 85(1926-2012).
For those who have never had the opportunity to experience the magic of his work, head down to you local comic shop and ask around. I am sure that those in the know would be more than happy to share his work with you. Locally, Flying Colors Comics, Dr. Comics and Mr. Games, and Escapist Comics are good resources to learn more. If you aren’t in the SF/Eastbay Area and don’t know where to find a good, local comic shop check here. Until next week, stack them high and enjoy.
