    Sad that we've lost Kubert, but great that he still has the ability to move and surprise us. I can't wait to see the rest of the issues in this series! Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Nov 6, 2012

    As individual stories, these pieces are worthy of appreciation, even entertainment, but little more. As a tribute to one of the formative comic book artists in comics history, these pieces are loving and appropriate. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Nov 4, 2012

    Not only does this feature some fine comics craftsmanship, but it also represents one of the best values you'll find in the marketplace at the moment. Yes, it's priced at $4.99 US, but it's a hefty, ad-free package. It's an absolutely shame Kubert didn't live to see the release of this unique anthology, but it's encouraging his final work is of such a personal and outstanding nature. I haven't kept up with reports about the six-issue series since he passed, and I hope his contributions to the series were complete before his death. Nevertheless, I eagerly anticipate forthcoming issues. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Nov 5, 2012

    All in all, "Joe Kubert Presents" #1 is an anthology that shares the artistic sensibilities and storytelling dynamic of Joe Kubert even if his work is not present in all four of the stories. Additionally, this issue is a nice reminder of the versatility and passion Kubert brought to comics. While the artist recently passed away, at least we have this last hurrah to celebrate his accomplishments. The text piece in this book is more poignant for the fact that Kubert is no longer alive, but the art here leaves behind can never truly die. Read Full Review
