If you consider yourself to be a Joe Kubert fan, you owe if to yourself to add a copy of DC Special #5 (December, 1969). First, you get an amazing cover: a self-portrait of the artist surrounded by many great DC characters. I love the fact that they are working away on a painting of Joe himself, and that Johnny Quick is inviting us all to join in. It is a essentially a collection of Sgt. Rock, Hawkman and Viking Prince reprints from books that would cost a pretty penny to track down. The true rarity here is 'Rider of the Winds' from Showcase #2, a book that may never be reprinted. The real treat here are the 5 pages dedicated to showing Joe at home, with all of the Kubert, including young Andy and Adam. It is very charming and a real novelty for any fan. A VG/F copy of this recently failed to sell on eBay for $4.99, so there are affordable copies out there.
