Our thoughts and prayers are with the Kubert family. The Comic Historian with Class, Blake Bell, says it better than I ever could at http://blakebellnews.blogspot.ca/2012/08/joe-kubert-my-memories.html
Kubert's Viking Prince tells Sgt. Rock about the time he went to Valhalla and asked Odin if he could marry a Valkyrior maiden!
Kubert gives a lesson in opening with a triptych. No wonder he opened a school!
