Robert "Bob" Lubbers (10 January 19228 July 2017; age 95) was a comic book artist. More often credited under the name of "Bob Lewis", he started his career as an illustrator for his school newspaper. After attending the Art Students League in New York near his home of Brooklyn, he began doing freelance work for pulp magazines, and by 1945 was employed as the art director by Fiction House, working on their comics, including Captain Wings, Rip Carson, and Firehair.

In 1950, he joined the United Feature Syndicate and took over the Tarzan comic strip. In 1954, he began working with Al Capp, and in 1959 took over The Saint comic strip before jumping to King Features in 1960. At this point, he began drawing Secret Agent X-9 under the name of "Bob Lewis", and was succeeded by Al Williamson in 1967. In 1970, he began working with Al Capp again on the Li'l Abner comic strip before joining Marvel Comics in the late 1970s. In the early 1980s, he joined DC Comics, and while there, inked over Joe Brozowski's pencils on several covers for their Star Trek title, taking credit as "Bob Lewis" once again.

He died in his sleep on 8 July 2017. [1]
