Here at ICE we are very proud indeed to announce that the most prolific and one of the greatest inkers in comics, Josef “Joe” Rubinstein has confirmed as our latest overseas guest for our 2015 expo this September in Birmingham.
Joe started his artist career in the early 1970s as a teenager. Primarily working as an inker, his artwork has been published by every major U.S. comics publisher including Marvel Comics, DC Comics and Dark Horse Comics .
One of his most important works has been inking The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe over a span of twenty years for which he holds a Guinness World Record of inking more pencilers than any other inker.
Among his extensive inking credits (which include more than 2,500
comic books), were work with Michael Golden on Micronauts, Jim Starlin‘s Warlock, Frank Miller‘s original Wolverine mini-series that was the basis for the last Wolverine movie and Aquaman with Don Newton.
Later assignments included a mini-series for Dark Horse Comics called Archenemies, and he co-inked issues of DC Comics‘ Ion mini-series. He currently inks projects for DC Comics, Marvel Comics and Kingstone Publishing.

In addition to signing and sketching for fans at his table on the Saturday Joe will also be conducting two exclusive master classes on the subject of Inking at our
sister event Comics Uncovered, giving aspiring artists in the UK a once in a life time opportunity to learn the craft of inking from one of the most experienced and skilled inkers the industry has ever known.
