Korak Son of Tarzan #10 - Russ Manning art


Korak Son of Tarzan v1 #10, 1965 - A village doctor is the only hope for Pahkut, recently shot by an evil hunter. Russ Manning's streamlined artwork tells the story with both clarity and brevity. Perhaps the most arresting panel is on page 14, where African warriors are starkly portrayed in light and shadow. In the second tale by Manning, Korak rescues women and girls destined to be buried with their dead king. The pages are impeccably drawn and sequenced. Most noteworthy is the story's opening panel, depicting Korak emerging from the dense jungle foliage. This is number 10 of 12 Korak issues with Manning art and/or covers.
