Andrew "Andy" Kubert is an American
comic book artist, son of Joe Kubert, and brother of Adam Kubert, both of whom are also artists. He is a graduate of and an instructor of second-year classes at the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art, founded by his father (who also teaches there).
Andy Kubert was born on
February 27, 1962, the third member (after father Joe and elder brother Adam) of one of the most famous comics-artist families. While Kubert started at DC Comics, drawing " Adam Strange"and the " Batman vs. Predator"crossover, he is probably best known for his work at Marvel Comics, specifically the company's X-Mentitles. An occasional cover artist on "Uncanny X-Men" (drawing the first cover appearance of the character Gambit) and "X-Men Classic", Kubert later served as a fill-in penciller for "Uncanny X-Men" #279-280 and #288 before becoming the regular penciller on "X-Men" vol. 2 (starting with #14), following Jim Lee's departure from Marvel to form Image Comics.
Both Adam and his brother, Andy, signed exclusive contracts to work for
DC Comicsin 2005. This came as somewhat of a shock to the industry as both the Kuberts (along with John Romita, Jr.) were known to be Marvel Comics' stalwarts, and the Kubert family was well known for its company loyalty. When Valiant Comicsattempted to lure the two brothers from Marvel in 1994, they both refused, instead opting to keep their home at Marvel Comics.
In a Wizard interview, the brothers made clear that they held no animosity for Marvel, but instead were excited for the chance to work on DC titles for a change. According to DC editor Mike Marts, Andy is currently working on a top secret project involving
Batman, after leaving the monthly title's illustrating duties to current artist Tony Daniel. [ [http://forum.newsarama.com/showthread.php?t=124771] , Newsarama]
