TLIID 102. Joe Kubert Tribute. by AxelMedellin TLIID 102. Joe Kubert Tribute. by AxelMedellin
Girls and boys, as you probably read somewhere, the great Joe Kubert passed away this week. He was probably the last of the great cartoonists who was at the beginning of the industry, same as Kirby and Eisner. His influence can't be measured, nor the lives he made better and full of inspiration.

So, this week in The Line It is Drawn, we did a heartfelt homage to him. I went with Hawkman, Tor and Sgt. Rock, three of the characters he's most associated with. You can see the full gallery here:

Have a nice week, folks.

Really well-done, Axel! You captured Joe's style nicely (particularly on Tor's face), and I love the colors.
