Tarzan #47 - Russ Manning art

Tarzan v1 #471953 - Leading their army, the Brothers of the Spear attack the enemy village. Amid the fighting, Nagopa the witch doctor tries to sneak away through an underground passage. Still early in his career, Russ Manning draws the pages rather meekly. Despite the action (see interior page above), there'a little to elicit excitement. His layouts are even more conservative, using the same six panel grid on nearly every page. Other artists in this issue include Jesse Marsh. This is number 9 of 132 Tarzan issues with Manning art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Manning or Tarzan issues. See also this blog's Manning checklist.
