Tarzan #230 - Joe Kubert art & cover, Russ Manning reprints

Joe Kubert
Tarzan of the Apes v1 #230, 1974 - The first of several DC super spectaculars, this issue contains both new and reprinted material. Joe Kubert's crowded cover pales compared to his terrific contents page and stunning short story. Opening with a magnificent two-page spread, this tale of Tarzan's rescue of a small deer equals other longer Kubert works in quality. Much of the issue features a sequence of Russ Manning newspaper strips, appearing in comic book format for the first time. Impeccably drawn, the 1960s story makes a worthy contribution to this 100 page issue. Other artists in this issue include Russ Heath and Mike Kaluta. This is number 23 of 43 Tarzan issues with Kubert art and/or covers (not including reprints).
