On the shoulders of giants by dan-duncan On the shoulders of giants by dan-duncan
TwoMorrows publishing did a tribute issue to Joe Kubert and they asked if I would put something together.  I believe the turnout (not surprisingly) was so immense that I only made it into the digital copy.  But this really is one of those times when it was awesome to just be considered.  The time I spent and the people I met in the cold state of New Jersey changed my life.  And I can guarantee you that I wouldn't have gone there if it weren't for Joe!

Too sick.  So sick I have to add a useless comment.  I don't do this often, either.

Thank you!  It would be so dishonest to pretend that I didn't get there with someone else's help.  Even if I never met the person and was just inspired by there work.  The whole "It takes a village to raise a child" expression applies to artists (and probably every other trade).  I can't actually speak for everyone, but I think we are all the sum of other peoples parts.  Take that how you will haha

enjoy your time while your there.  I remember it being tough and frustrating at times but I stayed fairly positive, learned as much as I could and eventually, I turned out all right

I passed by that school each day on my way to work for 10 years... I regret never going there when I had the chance. Joe Kubert was definately one of the "greats". <3

P.S... Jersey is only cold in the winter! (ok, sometimes in Spring and Fall too... but DEFINATELY not in the summer! :D)

He really was one of the greats, and he'll most definitely be missed.


And in all fairness you're right.  the summer is not cold, but it is impossibly hot and sticky!  I used to have crazy fever dreams whenever I would take a nap in the summer haha
