One Million Years Ago #1 - Joe Kubert art & cover

Joe Kubert
One Million Years Ago v1 #1, 1953 - Tor, prehistoric caveman created by Joe Kubert, makes his first appearance. The artist seems well-suited for this adventure series, employing a style that's spontaneous and exciting. Certain panels seem a bit crowded, but Kubert draws each page with the skillfulness of a veteran. Danny Dreams, a back-up series about an imaginative boy, is equally well done. Arguably the issue's best art resides on the information pages featuring Stegosaurus and Tyrannosaurus. This issue has been partially reprinted in Tor v2 #2 and the series continues on titled after the main character. Other artists in this issue include Norman Maurer. This is number 1 of 1 One Million Years Ago issues with Kubert art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kubert or Tor issues. See also this blog's Joe Kubert checklist.
