Joe Kubert Marvel Ad! Oddball!


I know. It's not really fair to spotlight the great Joe Kubert in an "OMM" post. But, ya gotta love his quick sketch of the Marvel Madmen in this 1979 ad for lunchboxes! Thor's helmet looks odd, Captain America is way off, and Hulk and Thing look like to deformed construction workers chowin' down on the ol' lunchmeat...Love it!

Joe's comic art school of the day handled the preparation of these ads, and you could tell he was called upon to pinch-hit with last minute art..Were YOU gonna tell this artistic great his drawings were "off?!"
