Joe Kubert is a rarity among golden age comic book artists. His work is still every bit as dynamic today as it was in the 50's and 60's. That's a remarkable feat. Even ardent fans of the great Jack Kirby would have to admit the Kirby's later work in the late 70's and 80's was not of the standard of his earlier work. Joe Kubert, one of the early greats in the comic medium, wrote and drew this entertaining graphic novel, "Jew Gangster," the story of a young gangster Reuben Kaplan. Ruby joins the Jewish mob during the Great Depression and falls into a predictable spiral of violence. The story of lost innocence and the inevitable ending feels familiar, yet fresh.

Joseph Kubert (/ˈkjuːbərt/; September 18, 1926 – August 12, 2012) was a Polish-born American comic book artist, art teacher, and founder of The Kubert School.

IT'S MORE OF THE LATE GREAT JOE KUBERT'S ART ...NUFF SAID!

Joe Kubert is a rarity among golden age comic book artists. His work is still every bit as dynamic today as it was in the 50's and 60's. That's a remarkable feat. Even ardent fans of the great Jack Kirby would have to admit the Kirby's later work in the late 70's and 80's was not of the standard of his earlier work. But like a fine wine, Kubert just seems to get better with age. His latest graphic novel "Jew Gangster" is reminiscent of those great gangster movies of the 1930's and 40's that starred the likes of Bogart, Cagney, and Edward G. Robinson.

Set in Brooklyn at the peak of the depression, it tells the story of Reuben "Rudy" Kaplan, a Jewish teenager who is the son of immigrant parents. He sees his parents struggle to carve out a life for he and his sister, Rifke. His mother runs a small restaurant and spends the entire day cooking while his father works cutting dresses and making pennies. It's a life that Rudy at once detests and also fears. He'll do anything to avoid a similar fate. The book takes a bit of a page out of the 1937 film "Dead End" where the city's youth fear and admire the local gangsters. Here are men who are living the good life amidst these dark times. Rudy soon decides that's the life for him and he makes a contact with a local tough named "Monk" who pays Rudy more money to simply deliver a package than his father makes in a month. Rudy wants to use the money to help his family.

This quickly brings Rudy into conflict with his father who tells him that he did not come to America to see his son become a Jew gangster. Rudy leaves home and Monk gives him a room in the back of a local pool hall. Rudy takes on more and more jobs with Monk, accompanying him to collect protection money and to break up a union that is trying to organize at a local business. Soon Rudy's even recruited some of his neighborhood friends into the fold but Rudy is also playing a dangerous game involving Monk's girl Molly, a game that could cost Rudy his life.

The book is filled with the type of standard and colorful characters that made those gangster movies so fun to watch. There's the mother who loves her son and turns a blind eye to where all of his money comes from; there's the father who struggles to build a better life for his family; and there are the violent, tough-talking local gangsters who are not above roughing up or even murder to make a point.

Kubert's art lives and breathes a gritty, Brookyn feel. One can almost smell the stink of the claustrophobic streets and feel the helplessness of its people. A wonderfully rendered urban tale.

Joe Kubert, one of the early greats in the comic medium, wrote and drew this entertaining graphic novel, "Jew Gangster," the story of a young gangster Reuben Kaplan. Ruby joins the Jewish mob during the Great Depression and falls into a predictable spiral of violence. The story of lost innocence and the inevitable ending feels familiar, yet fresh.

This entertaining graphic novel is part of what I am calling the "Depression Era New York" school of stories - "Kings In Disguise" and Eisner's "Contract With God Trilogy" are among this group of works. This story is not as powerful as those, but a worthy member of the serious graphic novel genre. This powerful short novel is another display of how much the Great Depression affected an entire generation of artists. With fine artwork and a fast-paced story, this novel has me writing it again: we live in an incredible age for the comic medium.

I picked this up as a small hardcover comic book last week and read it in a single evening. It was slightly "dinged" so it only cost $5, instead of $23. At $5 I think I got my money's worth -- mostly.

Now, first off let me say I am a big fan of Joe Kubert's work, which is the only reason I bought this. That being said, this is an odd little comic book/graphic novel.

Basically, it's set in the Depression of the 1930s and it follows a boy by the name of Rueben "Ruby" Kaplan as he decides to stop being a good boy living in poverty and starts doing errands for the local gangsters to make some money -- eventually, they bring him into the mob and this skims over his career there.

It's a decent little story and it's quite readable. However, I kept getting the feeling that I had read it all before in the ROAD TO PERDITION graphic novel and in Will Eisner's various "tenement" stories. In fact, there are numerous splash pages used to separate the "chapters" of the book, and these are all done in an Eisner style. There's nothing wrong with that, but it's just Eisner-esque, so it's not really as good as either Will or Joe are capable of.

Now, the rest of the artwork is pretty good, but it feels cramped. This book was laid out as a small book (larger than a digest, but mostly a square page). This means we get about four panels per page, which just leaves the art feeling a bit cramped and doesn't provide the sense of movement that Kubert's work is capable of. It's not bad, but it's just not great.

In general, that's what can be said for JEW GANGSTER. It's not bad (in fact, parts of it are really good), but it's not great, either.

If you find it on sale, pick it up.

I like Kubert's drawings and I am interested in the 1930s New York setting (though I think Eisner is better when it comes to architecture and portraying the urban landscape) but I'm afraid the writing here is a little weak. Kubert tries to put you into the era with mentions of FDR, "King Kong" and Jack Benny, which is a good idea, though I think Jack Benny's radio show was on Sundays, not weekdays, as it is portrayed here.

The plot is the problem; it seems like a bunch of gangster cliches strung together, not bad, but with little new added by Kubert. For example, the title led me to expect more Jewish-centric aspects than I found; the story Kubert tells could almost as easily have been told of an Italian or Irish or whatever gangster who was son of hardworking but poor immigrants and abandons school and his family to make money, etc.

Definitely worth looking at, but maybe not worth paying for; I read a library copy.
