The legacy behind DC UNIVERSE: LEGACIES

This blog is always fun, but sometimes, you get a surprise in your inbox that reminds you why doing this each day is cool. Today was one such day, as I got a nice note from superstar artist Andy Kubert, who’s being doing a bang-up job on the first two issues of DC UNIVERSE: LEGACIES, paired with his legendary father on inks.
It seems Andy found a photo that typifies both the project and the legacy behind it, as we see father Joe Kubert giving a young Andy some pointers. Thanks for sending this, Andy, and let’s hear a few words about the photo:
“I came across this old newspaper photo in my files that I had totally forgotten about which my mom had given me about 15-20 years ago. It was taken in my dad`s studio in the house I grew up in...his studio was above the attached garage overlooking the woods in the backyard.
I still remember the smell of the paper and ink in there. He would let me set up a little area to draw and read comics as he drew. I loved the war, mystery and Superman and Batman comics. He would also show me a few drawing tricks (and still does!).
From the looks of the photo, I don’t know how he put up with me in there!”
