Tarzan's Jungle Annual #5 - Russ Manning art

Tarzan's Jungle Annual v1 #5 / Dell Giant, 1956 - Russ Manning's Tarzan story unfortunately begins with a slow monotonous start. His artistic style is barely evident, improving only from the fourth page on. Tarzan and his friend Buto discover a passage to a lost civilization of giant vikings. The armor and weapons of these ancient warriors nicely contrast with the jungle surroundings. Manning's natural scenery, including waterfalls and mesas, offer some compensation for this generally mediocre effort. This is number 3 of 5 Tarzan's Jungle Annual issues with Manning art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Manning or Tarzan's Jungle Annual issues.
