Joe Kubert is a living legend in the comics field. Having begun his professional career on Catman Comics in 1942, he went on to colour The Spirit and work for DC on comics including Seven Soldiers of Victory. After a stint as managing editor of St John Publications, where he created Tor, Kubert returned to DC where he cemented his reputation on strips including Sgt. Rock and Hawkman. In 1976, Kubert founded the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art, where he teaches to this day.From School Library Journal:
Grade 8 Up—Tor, a caveman, is beaten and exiled from his village. Having no place to go and no supplies, he begins to wander. Soon he hears cries; when he follows them, he happens upon a small apelike boy who is tied to a rock. When he sees a crocodilelike creature coming for the child, he battles the monster and saves the boy. Tor and the boy are then set upon by a village of apelike creatures who explain through drawings that the child was a sacrifice to keep other monsters away. Tor is pitted in a fight against this "monster," only to find that he is simply an outcast because of his appearance. Tor then finds a mate, a bare-breasted woman who is also an outcast. In the remaining chapters, he battles prehistoric creatures to protect himself, the child he saved, and his mate, all the while learning that he is not alone in being misunderstood. A foreword by comic writer Roy Thomas tells the history of Tor. The artwork takes its inspiration from the pulp comics of its time. While the illustrations are often rough, this technique seems only to add to the tone and feel of the story.—Valerie Davis, Campbell County Public Library, Newport, KY
