Jungle Action v2 #3 - Jim Starlin cover

Jim Starlin
Jungle Action v2 #3, 1973 - The first few issues of this jungle adventure-themed series contains reprints from the 1960s. In this case, Tharn, Lorna the Jungle Girl and Jann of the Jungle stories make up the bulk of the book. Jim Starlin is tasked with repackaging the contents within a more contemporary cover. The artist's muscular definition of the hero is extreme, even by comic book standards, but not inappropriate. Starlin's layout is works surprisingly well. Note how the arc of the snake's movement leads the eye from the recoiling female to the central character. Other artists in this issue include Joe Maneely (reprints). This is number 1 of 1 Jungle Action issues with Starlin art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Starlin or Jungle Action issues.
