Weird Worlds #1 - Joe Kubert cover

Joe Kubert
Weird Worlds v3 #1, 1972 - Due to the success of their Tarzan of the Apes series, DC licenses other Edgar Rice Burroughs characters to star in their own collective title. John Carter, Warlord of Mars and David Innes begin as co-features. Joe Kubert's cover offers a glimpse of the characters, drawing in a looser style that begs for more definition. Note how Burrough's name, the Tarzan logo and the ape-man himself try to bring a familiarity to the new series. Other artists in this issue include Murphy Anderson and Alan Weiss. This is number 1 of 1 Weird Worlds issues with Kubert art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kubert or Weird Worlds issues. See also this blog's Joe Kubert checklist.
