Tarzan of the Apes v1 #207, 1972 - This first DC issue continues from the previous long-running Dell/Gold Key series. Joe Kubert starts anew with an adaptation of Tarzan’s origin. Unlike the streamlined version of Russ Manning, Kubert brings the story and character back to its savage roots with his loose, impressionistic style. His African jungle is a brutal, unforgiving place teeming with danger. The powerful cover reinforces this, depicting Tarzan fighting for his life against a great ape. Along with Hawkman, Sgt. Rock and Enemy Ace, Tarzan would become one of Kubert's signature characters. Another Edgar Rice Burroughs creation, John Carter Warlord of Mars, begins as a back up series drawn by Murphy Anderson. This is number 1 of 43 Tarzan issues with Kubert art and/or covers (not including reprints).
