Ragman #5 - Joe Kubert art & cover

Joe Kubert
Ragman v1 #5, 1977 - This final installment of the Ragman saga circles back to his place of origin from the first issue. Joe Kubert, who co-created the character with Robert Kanigher, takes on all of the artistic responsibilities this time. While his cover is merely adequate, Kubert's interior illustrations are simply stunning. A wide horizontal panel spans the first two-page spread, beautifully depicting the Ragman in his gritty, urban environment. His origin is briefly retold before a new story and fresh characters emerge. Powerfully drawn throughout, the finest scenes present the hero at his most vengeful (see interior page below). This is number 5 of 5 Ragman issues with Kubert art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kubert or Ragman issues. See also this blog's Joe Kubert checklist.
