The Greatest Joe Kubert Stories Ever Told! – Voting

Here’s the latest of the daily voting threads for The Greatest ____ Stories Ever Told!

Today we have Joe Kubert!

When we lost Joe Kubert last year we lost one of the greatest comic book artists of the 20th Century. Kubert excelled at all different types of stories, from war comics to superhero comics to jungle comics, he could do it all.

You have until 11:59 PM Pacific time, April 15th to vote for your top ten favorite comic book stories written, co-written or drawn by Joe Kubert! Your choices will be revealed on April 16th.

You vote by sending your top ten choices to bcronin@comicbookresources.com (make the subject heading clear that it is about The Greatest Joe Kubert Stories Ever Told Voting) by that time (you send your votes by e-mail, not in the comments to this piece). If you legitimately don’t think you can think of ten stories, I’ll still allow the ballot if you can think of at least six stories.

Be sure to first click here to read about the rules and guidelines for the voting (so you don’t vote for stuff that is ineligible, like you can’t vote for “Joe Kubert’s Sgt. Rock,” you have to pick a specific story or story arc).

I’d prefer you not share your votes in the comments section – please let’s keep it a surprise until the results go up. You can share your votes then if you’d like! In addition, as a general rule for all of these polls, don’t be a jerk about the creator in question in the comments. If you don’t like the creator, fair enough, don’t vote. No snarky comments about the creator. I’ll be deleting comments like that.

Have fun voting and be sure to check back April 16th to see the results!


My favorite Joe Kubert story is when I met him at the Boston Comic Con 2 years ago.

Man, I should think this out. I could probably come up with something.

The guy’s done so much stuff that there really are no shortage of great stories from him, but he’s not really known for one specific iconic arc like most famous industry professionals eventually end up being so I expect this list to be pretty unpredictable.

A request: For any of the old DC war comics that get voted to the top ten, could you please tell us if they were reprinted in any of the Sgt. Rock Special issues from the late 80’s?

Do we count the books he ghost drew for his lazy son Adam?

I would just say “All of them.” Joe K is one of my favorite artists, but I can’t really think of specific stories that I would call my favorites. He was always great, so it’s hard to differentiate.

Hey, that rhymed. :)

Agreed. Kubert’s my favorite comic artist period. But this is hard!

Going to be a lot of war stories on this list (not that I’m complaining).

I’m feeling embarrassed here.
Joe Kubert is a comic book legend and I’ve read hardly anything he’s done.
I’ve never been particularly into war stories(with a few exceptions) and was more Marvel than DC (so only know Sgt Rock from the XTC song about him)
I’ll see if I can scrape together 6 but may have to abstain…..sorry…my loss
