Josef “Joe” Rubinstein
Josef “Joe” Rubinstein started his artist career in the early 1970s as a teenager. Primarily working as an inker, his artwork has been published by all major U.S. comics publishers 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 and Aquaman with Don Newton. Later assignments included a mini-series for Dark Horse Comics called Archenemies, and co-inked issues of DC Comics’s Ion mini-series. He currently inks the ongoing series Green Arrow/Black Canary for DC Comics.
