Korak Son of Tarzan #11 - Russ Manning art


Korak Son of Tarzan v1 #11, 1965 - Two tales by Russ Manning place Korak in exotic, undiscovered lands within Africa. In the first, he fights alongside the Stork Men of Pal-Ul-Don as they defend their territory. The artwork shows promise, but falters from lack of depth and detail in many panels. The second story features the hero's first foray into the City of Opar. Manning's art is more polished and distinctive, especially the large panel of the fabled city (page 3). The view is wide in scope with an equal distribution of light and dark to enhance depth. Interestingly, two educational pages feature Korak touting the benefits of good fitness habits. This is number 11 of 12 Korak issues with Manning art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Manning or Korak Son of Tarzan issues. See also this blog's Manning checklist.
