Brave and the Bold #36 - Joe Kubert art & cover

Joe Kubert
Brave and the Bold v1 #36 presents Hawkman, 1961 - In the first of two Joe Kubert tales, an anthropologist turns to sorcery to steal an array of ritual objects. Mythological creatures fill the panels, resulting in some of the most fascinating imagery on the series. His depictions of Phoenix and other birds (see interior page below) are well-researched and convincing. Just as engaging is the introduction of the Shadow-Thief, both on the cover and in the second feature. An ex-con receives a Dimensiometer from an alien, allowing him to commit crimes in shadow form. Kubert's portrayal is excellent, introducing fantastical elements into an otherwise typical super-hero adventure. “Strange Spells of the Sorcerer” was later reprinted in DC 100 Page Super Spectacular #6. This is number 27 of 33 Brave and the Bold issues with Kubert art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Kubert or Brave and the Bold issues.
