Word is out on Twitter that legendary comics artist, innovator and teacher Joe Kubert has passed away at the age of 85. The closest to official confirmation across the web is a Tweet from artist Dave Gibbons which reads: "Reliable source confirms that Joe Kubert had been in hospital and has passed away. So sorry to hear this. A great artist and a great man."

Joe Kubert Passes Away, Aged 85

Kubert, simply put, is one of the titans of field. He’s probably best known for his work on Hawkman (including the original version in the 1940s) and his work on DC’s war comics, like Sgt. Rock. Personally, I’ve always had a soft spot for his Tarzan. Kubert was an editor at DC. The founder of The Kubert School, training new artists.He is survived by his sons, Adam and Andy, both outstanding artists in their own right.

RIP.... seriously... I was lookong forward to chatting with him at the next New York Comicon again... Its really a very very big blow. Hes done so much. He CONTINUES to do so much.. and all the while still working on all his comic deadlines.

I will never forget him. Ever. He is such an inspiration- someone who has left hundreds a way to pursue their comic career, a devoted father, a fanatic of the comic universe and art... and someone who has unbelievable POWER and PASSION in every pen stroke...
A truly sad day for the world of comics.

RIP Joe!
