Snark Free Corner for 5/28

Welcome to the latest installment of your breath of snark free air!

Special Memorial Day edition!!

Enjoy!

COOL COMIC THING

Normally, war breaks families apart, but in one case, it brought a family together.

I am, of course, talking about the Kuberts, and Sgt. Rock #394.

Father Joe Kubert for years was not only one of the best WAR artists in the comic book industry, but just flat out one of the best artists in the comic book industry PERIOD.

In this 1984 issue of the comic Kubert is probably most associated with, Sgt. Rock, there were, for the first time in comic history, three Kuberts all in one book.

The issue was edited by Joe, and he supplied the following strong cover.

The main story was by Robert Kanigher (duh!) and drawn by Adrian Gonzales.

The second story, however, was drawn AND scripted by Adam Kubert, just shy of his 25th birthday!

The last story was written and inked by Ron Wagner, and pencilled by Andy Kubert.

After that issue, both Kuberts began to get work (in various capacities) for the next couple of years until the early 90s, when both brothers became two of Marvel’s most popular artists (and when the Image migration occurred, they may very well have been Marvel’s two MOST popular artists!).

Cool, huh?

COVER THEME GAME

As always, here is the game. I show three covers. They all have something in common, whether it be a character, a trait all three characters share, locale, creator, SOMEthing. And it isn’t something obvious like “They all have prices!” “They all have logos!” “They all feature a man!” etc.

In addition, please note that you must have some familiarity with comic book history to correctly guess these comics. You cannot guess the connective theme just by looking at the covers solely, you must have some knowledge beyond just the covers.

Good luck! A cool point to the first person to figure it out!
