Korak Son of Tarzan #2 - Russ Manning art


Korak Son of Tarzan v1 #2, 1964 - Coming to the aid of shipwrecked passengers, Korak must fend off a gang of river pirates. Russ Manning's clean, crisp drawings add clarity to the storytelling. The rising squall and subsequent abandonment of a yacht (pages 3-4) are among the best scenes. Careful pacing and deft page layouts display Manning's skill and experience. In the second tale, Korak rescues an African water buffalo and ends up befriending him. This is number 2 of 12 Korak issues with Manning art and/or covers.
