Joe Kubert Visits Israel
Joe Kubert, towering legend of Silver Age comics art, is scheduled to land in Israel next week, along with his son Adam Kubert, also a comics art icon, to launch an exhibit of their work at The Israeli Museum of Caricature and Comics in Holon.
The exhibit has been arranged, prepared and curated by Dorit Maya-Gur, Israeli writer/artist and creator of Falafel-Man. Dorit also studied at The Kubert School, established by Joe Kubert in the early 1970′s, where Joe and his sons Adam and Andy also serve as instructors. Partnering with Dorit in curating the exhibit is Yuval Sharon, founding partner of Comics N’ Vegetables, the Israeli comic book shop that won the Will Eisner Spirit of Comics Retailer Award this year.
The opening ceremony is scheduled for Wednesday, August 17th, and the exhibit will open to the public the following day.
The Kuberts will spend the next few days seeing a little more of the Israeli homeland. It’s no small privilege for the Netzers to host this dear and special family for a Sabbath Eve dinner at our Ofra home.
A thrilling and historic event for Israel and its comics community cometh our way.
