Neal Adams, Joe Kubert, and Stan Lee Team Up to Tell The Tale of Dina Gottliebova Babbitt
Comic book legends: Neal Adams, Joe Kubert, and Stan Lee, have joined forces to tell the story of one, Dina Gottliebova Babbitt, who was a holocaust survivor that used her artistic talent to paing portraits for the infamous “Angel of Death” Dr. Josef Mengele. Babbitt painted watercolor portraits for the evil Nazi doctor for 2 years, with some of those paintings actually surviving. Those paintings are now in the hand of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial Museam in Poland, but Babbitt has wanted them back for a good while now, and the museum refuses to part with them. After numerous attempts and petitions to retrieve her work, a 6-page comic has been produced with drawings and contributions from the aforementioned comic book legends. The book, illustrated by Adams, shows a time line of events of Babbitt’s experiences and why she was chosen to paint portraits of prisoners of the notorious concentration camp. The comic has been presented to major comic book companies in hopes of getting it published, but nothing has come to fruition as of now. Here is it is courtesy of the New York Times.
