Now as then, Joe’s work goes straight for the gut, pulls me into his characters and leaves no doubt as to how each feels about the space he or she occupies within the story.
Joe has continued in the medium and, lately, has been best known for two collaborations with his wife Muriel: The Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art, and the infinite number of Kubert Kids who seem to produce the lion’s share of the nation’s better comics output these days.
But even at 78 Joe’s work as a storyteller has been as strong as ever in several graphic novels over the past decade, including the hard firsthand look at the realities of modern day warfare in Fax From Sarajevo and his gut-wrenching account of the Warsaw ghetto uprising, Yossel April 19, 1943.

Few performers could light up a crowd like Joe Tex. This pillar of soul was born Joseph Arrington in 1933; he chose Tex as his stage name to give recognition to his Texas roots.
For all his success on the soul charts, there was more than a hint of country in Joe Tex. His frequent topics of infidelity and familiy life were common country themes, his sessions were recorded with country and soul musicians, and country music legend Buddy Killen served as his producer.
When Tex returned to the stage, he scored the biggest hit of his career with the very funky "I Gotcha." At the height of the song's popularity, he again quit the music business to focus on preaching, changing his name to Joseph Haaziz.

“Tex” was and still is so popular in Italy that some people there use to say that every true Italian family must treasure some of the “Tex” books in their home.
So, I introduced Joe to “Tex” and told him how much I was proud of it that my company handles and controls all the publishing rights to “Tex” in the entire world – outside Italy.

 Hold What You've Got by Joe Tex Songfacts
Tex was on the verge of having his contract with Dial Records torn up after three years of futility when label owner and producer Buddy Killen suggested on more try, but only if Tex agreed to follow Killen's instructions to the letter.
When Tex entered the studio to record this, he didn't have a melody yet, and he could barely speak with a hoarse voice.
Killen suggested that the words be matched to a gospel song, "Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty" to take advantage of the Christmas season, and when Tex failed to hit the high notes while trying to record the song, Killen suggested that he merely talk through the part with the high notes.

 Joe Tex : I've Got to Do a Little Better - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect
Another rock-solid album from Joe Tex, I've Got To Do A Little Better was his third full-length release of 1966, but Tex showed no signs of slowing down or losing his breath on these twelve songs.
Buddy Killen's production is admirably malleable, knowing when to go for subtlety and when to rave on, and Tex's rich and passionate tenor rings out clear and true on each and every tune.
One of the very best albums of Tex's Southern soul period, I've Got To Do A Little Bit Better suggests the kind of care and careful thought that rarely went into LP's of the period, and it's well worth seeking out for fans.
