From Publishers Weekly: "Joe Kubert explores what might have been in this gripping account of WWII's Warsaw ghetto uprising. In the text introduction, Kubert recalls how his Polish family attempted to emigrate to the U.S. in 1926, but they were denied because his mother was pregnant with him. Luckily, they succeeded a few months later. But what if his family hadn't gotten away? In an immediate, sketchy pencil style, Kubert imagines an alternate version of his family history ... Kubert's loose pencil art excels at catching character and setting in a few lines, although the layouts are sometimes plain. Yossel tells its tragic story with both emotion and dignity."
I love it when civilians try to critique comic artists. Here, they say of Kubert's work, "sketchy pencil style ... the layouts are sometimes plain." Sketchy pencil style? Plain layouts? Joe Kubert? No. I don't think so. How about "Raw dynamism that explodes out of every single panel from the gifted genius who practically invented war comics!" Better.
