Kubert, artist, graphic novelist, and head of the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art, has just completedg his tenth year and 120 issues as the “PS” contractor providing creative art, design, and pre-press production for the pocket-size publication—the same services provided by Will Eisner for 227 issues in the program’s first 21 years.
Fitzgerald, who was the first managing editor for “PS”, is the author of the 2010 Eisner Award nominated “Will Eisner and PS Magazine”, which reflects the six-decade saga and art of Eisner, Kubert, and six other art contractors between the two book-ender icons.
The bloggers indicate that their continuing “Best Of” presentations will include selections from all eight artists.
The United States Army’s “PS Magazine,” internationally acclaimed as the most successful and longest-running communications program utilizing sequential art to convey technical and motivational information, will mark its Sixtieth Anniversary in June 2011 with publication of Issue No. 703. Joe Kubert and Paul E. Fitzgerald have established a blog, “The Best of PS Magazine 1951-2011,” as a vehicle for an ongoing, year-long salute.
