The staff and friends of the Silver Snail were deeply saddened by the passing of Joe Kubert (September 18, 1926 - August 12, 2012). Some expressed their thoughts in words, while others in pictures -- this gallery is our memorial.
Kin Jee, Silver Snail Ottawa's manager:
I was saddened by Joe Kubert's passing as I was a fan of his art. There aren't very many artists who can convey so much emotion in their work with so few lines. Look at his Sgt. Rock stuff and you will see what I mean. His stories always made me think about the characters and what they went through. His sons Adam and Andy are following in their father's footsteps admirably so the Kubert name will still grace the new comic racks but it Joe will never be forgotten by fans like me.
