“Dance Macabre”* by Joe Kubert is another of his early works, this time from Black Cat #2 (1946). Over the past few years I've posted some of Joe’s work from those days when he was in his teens and early twenties. (See the links down below the story scans.) Even in his earliest artwork Joe showed signs of being a prodigy, but he constantly worked at his craft. Over time he became one of the greatest, and most respected comic book artists of all time. Because he had been mentored by artists like Mort Meskin he did the same with his Joe Kubert School. The history of comic art would be a much different place without Joe, and so I find virtually everything he did to be of interest.
*The name of the musical piece is actually “Danse Macabre,” written by Camille Saint-Saëns in 1874.
