Career

While Kubert started at DC Comics, drawing Adam Strange and the Batman vs. Predator crossover, he is best known for his work at Marvel Comics, specifically the company's X-Men titles. 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 Comics in 2005. According to DC editor Mike Marts, Andy is working on a top secret project involving Batman, after leaving the monthly title's illustrating duties to current artist Tony Daniel.

Kubert illustrated the covers to Batman: Cacophony, a 3-issue miniseries published in November 2008. Kubert will also be illustrating the two-issue Batman story by Neil Gaiman entitled, "Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader?" This will reunite Gaiman and Kubert, who previously worked together on the series Marvel 1602.

While his brother Adam has returned to Marvel Comics following his three-year deal with DC, Dan DiDio has confirmed that following "Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader?", Kubert has two more Batman projects in the works, one of which he is writing himself. He contributed covers to the Blackest Night: Batman mini-series, as well as variant covers for "Blackest Night" issues of Green Lantern.

Dan DiDio confirmed Andy was working on two DC stories, one featuring Batman, the other featuring the DCU. Kubert's father Joe inked over his pencils. The first two issues of DC Universe Legacies, a 10 issue series chronicling the history of the DC Universe, the first of which came out in May 2010, the second to come in June. Alongside this, Andy contributed to Batman #700, teaming again with Grant Morrison to tell another tale of Damian Wayne as Batman in the future as part of the over-sized anniversary issue.

In 2011 Kubert illustrated the DC miniseries "Flashpoint".

Famous quotes containing the word career:

    I began my editorial career with the presidency of Mr. Adams, and my principal object was to render his administration all the assistance in my power. I flattered myself with the hope of accompanying him through [his] voyage, and of partaking in a trifling degree, of the glory of the enterprise; but he suddenly tacked about, and I could follow him no longer. I therefore waited for the first opportunity to haul down my sails.
    William Cobbett (1762–1835)

    I restore myself when I’m alone. A career is born in public—talent in privacy.
    Marilyn Monroe (1926–1962)

    Work-family conflicts—the trade-offs of your money or your life, your job or your child—would not be forced upon women with such sanguine disregard if men experienced the same career stalls caused by the-buck-stops-here responsibility for children.
    Letty Cottin Pogrebin (20th century)
