Tarzan's Jungle Annual #3 - Russ Manning art

Tarzan's Jungle Annual v1 #3 - Russ Manning dell silver age comic book page art
Tarzan's Jungle Annual v1 #3 / Dell Giant, 1954 - One of his early Tarzan works, this issue contains two Russ Manning stories with differing approaches to the art. His first, featuring Tarzan's son "Boy", quite frankly is a struggle in draftsmanship. Plenty of textural linework abounds, but faces and figures seem unbalanced and stiff. There is only the faintest resemblance to his later, more mature works. The second tale, "Tarzan and the Honor of Muviro", is better at utilizing shadows for contrast and depth. More care also seems to be taken in the rendition of foliage as well. This is number 1 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. See also this blog's Russ Manning checklist.

Secrets of Sinister House #15 - mis-attributed Nestor Redondo art

Secrets of Sinister House v1 #15, 1973 - No Nestor Redondo art in this issue, despite what some comic book price guides say. The artist's work does appear in 1 other issue of Sinister House. Artists in this issue include Romy Gamboa, Jess Jodloman and Jack Sparling (cover). See today's posts or more Redondo or Sinister House issues.

What If (the original Marvel bullpen had become the Fantastic Four?) #11 - Jack Kirby art & cover


What If (the original Marvel bullpen had become the Fantastic Four?) v1 #11, 1978 - Jack Kirby writes and draws one of his oddest stories of the bronze age. This super-hero parody features himself and Marvel employees Stan Lee, Sol Brodsky and Flo Steinberg. This whimsical tale transforms them into the Fantastic Four while retaining their own personalities and idiosyncrasies. Despite the humorous tone, Kirby utilizes his trademark bold two-page spread, accompanied by a nicely detailed single splash (see interior page above). Some pages are better drawn than others, but meets expectations overall. Though more relevant to industry insiders and diehard Marvel fans, this issue offers a knowing glimpse into the people behind the scenes. This is number 2 of 2 What If? issues with Kirby art and/or covers. See today's posts or more KirbyWhat If? or Fantastic Four issues. See also this blog's Kirby checklist.
