DC SPECIAL (1968) #5 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: DC Special (1968) #5
Special tribute to artist Joe Kubert on his 25th anniversary of comic book art. Since the 1940s, Kubert has drawn some of the DC Universe's most amazing stories with a sweeping style that inimitable. We start this special issue with a look at Kubert's home-life in a humorous short tale called "The Cartoonist ...at Home!" (featuring Kubert's renderings of his family, including sons Adam and Andy who would become famous comic artists in their own right). Then, we go to war with Sgt. Rock of Easy Co. as we battle Nazis through the "Eyes of a Blind Gunner."

A young Native American brave battles his nemesis, a giant black mountain lion, with the help of his spirit guardian, the mighty eagle in "Rider of the Winds." Then, Hawkman and Hawkgirl take on the Matter Master, in the alchemical menace's first appearance called "Menace of the Matter Master!" Finally, the Viking Prince battles sorcery and a two-headed bear to combat the "Threat of the Ice King." And don't miss Kubert's gallery of super-heroes!
