“Joe Kubert has established an unsurpassed standard of art and story in comics. His work belongs on everyone’s bookshelf”
"Kubert's straightforward, heartfelt portrayal of the Nazi era's horrors . . . has its own undeniable power."
"Every so often, one of the masters of the comics medium will release a project which reminds the entire industry and beyond of both their vitality as well as the power the medium holds. Joe Kubert's YOSSEL is just that."
“The economy and style of its draftsmanship puts its visual side near the rank of Will Eisner’s finest later work.”
"DONG XOAI, Vietnam 1965 is such a powerful book due, not only to the story, but also to the way that Kubert tells it. It feels less like a graphic novel and more like a journalist's notebook, providing a riveting minute-by-minute account of what these soldiers were going through. That gritty realism is the effect Kubert was striving for.”
Kubert’s art from DONG XOAI graces the cover of the May/June issue of VETERAN, the publication of the Vietnam Veterans of America and there’s lots more inside.
Three of legendary author/artist Joe Kubert’s most compelling works will be available in paperback this May. If you haven’t experienced his work before, now is the perfect time to give it a try.
Here’s what Joe himself has to say, "I'm thrilled that 3 books I'd written and drawn and were published in the past are being republished currently. YOSSEL, JEW GANGSTER and DONG XOAI should not be listed as 'comic books,' because that would be a misnomer. As a friend stated in a recent discussion we were having about today's narrative art and graphic novels, "There are no boundaries anymore, only the horizon."
