Bill Sienkiewicz To Join BEFORE WATCHMEN: NITE OWL Creative...

Following the passing of legendary comics artist Joe Kubert, inker Bill Sienkiewicz will join penciller Andy Kubert to complete the art for BEFORE WATCHMEN: NITE OWL. Sienkiewicz will join the project with issue #3 and will continue as inker through #4, the final issue of the miniseries.

 

Andy Kubert chose Sienkiewicz to take on the inking duties previously performed by his father and this is what Sienkiewicz had to say about the project, "I've known Joe Kubert and his family for more than 30 years, and taught a semester at the Kubert School. Joe's sudden passing was devastating to me. I'd always considered him unstoppable. A master of artistry and discipline. I am proud and honored to have been asked to continue his work on the Nite Owl series, and to be able to collaborate with his son, Andy, again after so many years. I feel a part of a son's touching tribute to his father."
