Tarzan #235 - Joe Kubert art & cover, Russ Manning reprints

Joe Kubert
Tarzan v1 #235, 1975 - Searching for a rare medicinal herb, Tarzan and his European cohorts are captured by a lost tribe of lizard people. For the last 100-pager in the series, Joe Kubert produces one of his most exceptional works. From the flaming plane crash on the opening spread to the prehistoric sea serpent in the climax, the artist displays a high level of draftsmanship (less so on the cover). His layouts and pacing are equally thoughtful. Rounding out the book is a Korak story, sumptuously drawn by Russ Manning and occupying near half the alotted pages. Other artists in this issue include Carmine Infantino.
