Korak Son of Tarzan #1 - Russ Manning art

Korak Son of Tarzan v1 #1, 1964 - Now a teenager, Korak pursues his own adventures with his companion ape Pahkut. Russ Manning, a longtime artist on Tarzan, brings his talents to this new title. His two stories vary in length, but his artwork in both shows a high level of craft. The second, about a trio of greedy miners, has more varied settings and characters. A large panel showing an underground dig (page 7) is brilliantly composed and awash in detail. This is number 1 of 12 Korak issues with Manning art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Manning or Korak Son of Tarzan issues. See also this blog's Manning checklist.
