Joe Kubert "Winnie Winkle" Part 2

 

I just acquired another Joe Kubert & the Joe Kubert School Winnie Winkle daily original strip from 1981.
 
Joe Kubert and his influential school of comics artistry took charge of the pioneering soap-opera feature Winnie Winkle to fulfill an objective for "my students [to] gain experience and make a couple of bucks", as Kubert told The Comics Journal in 1994, adding this: "I suddenly found myself doing the whole strip by myself. So I just dropped it."
 
I acquired this comic exclusively because of the last frame, it is so Joe Kubert.

Communication Arts - Design Annual 61

When I received the Communication Arts - Design Annual 61, I was pleasantly surprised to see that my name appeared twice.

 
Once as cover designer and art director for Steven Heller’s book The Swastika and Symbols of Hate: Extremist Iconography Today, and secondly as a client at the Tolerance Project. The magazine featured Taiwanese designer, Leo Lin, who created a poster for the Tolerance Project’s traveling poster show.  Part of his poster is also on the cover of the magazine.

Alex Raymond, Jim Holdaway and... Mirko Ilic

Seeing this cover of this Italian Il Mago comics magazine from 1979, makes me smile.

Not very often, as a matter of fact never before, the face of my comic “ hero”  appeared between faces of Rip Kirby by Alex Raymond and Modesty Blaise  by Jim Holdaway.
