Michael Netzer's Joe Kubert

I told you back here how excellent the Jack Kirby-focused first issue of Comic Book Creator was, and the second issue is every bit as much of a must-get. Not many series print a double-sized second issue but that's exactly what TwoMorrows has done to offer a fitting tribute to the great Joe Kubert.

My single most favorite item in the issue filled with favorites is the above portrait of Mr. Kubert as drawn by the fabulously talented Michael Netzer. (I like that Mr. Netzer has sent the original pencil drawing of the portrait to Mr. Kubert's son Andy for his collection.) The very warm bronze of the above image is by my own manufacture but you can see the printed version's more neutral tones over on the Michael Netzer website.
