Korak Son of Tarzan #3 - Russ Manning art

Korak Son of Tarzan v1 #3, 1964 - A pilot sees a captive girl within the confines of a dead volcano, spurring Korak to attempt a daring rescue. A flair for the exotic permeates Russ Manning's terrific drawings. His vast African landscapes soon give way to cavernous spaces, including the revelation of a giant vulture fed by human sacrifice. The story's climax (seen on the painted cover) is intensely captured by an oversized panel on page 14. The second tale is nearly as good, pitting Korak against a tribe of elephant thieves. This is number 3 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.
