Biography

Andy Kubert was born on February 27, 1962, the third member (after father Joe and elder brother Adam) of one of the most famous comics-artist families. While Kubert started at DC Comics, drawing "Adam Strange "and the "Batman vs. Predator "crossover, he is probably best known for his work at Marvel Comics, specifically the company's X-Men titles. An occasional cover artist on "Uncanny X-Men" (drawing the first cover appearance of the character Gambit) and "X-Men Classic", Kubert later served as a fill-in penciller for "Uncanny X-Men" #279-280 and #288 before becoming the regular penciller on "X-Men" vol. 2 (starting with #14), following Jim Lee's departure from Marvel to form Image Comics.

Both Adam and his brother, Andy, signed exclusive contracts to work for DC Comics in 2005. This came as somewhat of a shock to the industry as both the Kuberts (along with John Romita, Jr.) were known to be Marvel Comics' stalwarts, and the Kubert family was well known for its company loyalty. When Valiant Comics attempted to lure the two brothers from Marvel in 1994, they both refused, instead opting to keep their home at Marvel Comics.

In a Wizard interview, the brothers made clear that they held no animosity for Marvel, but instead were excited for the chance to work on DC titles for a change. According to DC editor Mike Marts, Andy is currently working on a top secret project involving Batman, after leaving the monthly title's illustrating duties to current artist Tony Daniel.
