In 1998 Kubert expanded his career as an art instructor with a series of correspondence coursesy Kubert's first instructional book for major bookstore release, Superheroes (1999) was aimed at a young audience interested in cartooning. It was followed by the instructional kit, Joe Kubert's Comic Book Studio, (2002). In his new book, JOE KUBERT: How to Draw from Life, designed for more mature art students, professionals and enthusiasts, Kubert presents a wealth of his own drawings from nude models spanning his years as an artist and art instructor.
