Tarzan #210 - Joe Kubert art & cover

Tarzan of the Apes v1 #210, 1972 - The four part origin of the ape-man concludes here, including Tarzan's first meeting with his friend Lieutenant D' Arnot. The cover, depicting the pair surrounded by tribesmen, is one of Joe Kubert's finest on the series to date despite all the competing graphics. The opening page is strangely bordered by animal icons, presumably to stage the setting in Africa but not necessary in my view. Some high points include not only the coverm but D'Arnot's tortured face on page 9 (click on inset above), the 1930s-ish depiction of Jane on page 6 and the sequence of Tarzan's arrival on pages 17-18. This is number 4 of 43 Tarzan issues with Kubert art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Kubert or Tarzan issues.
