Tarzan v1 #232, 1974 - Continuing the adaptation of "Tarzan and the Lion Man", Joe Kubert continues his seasoned artistry starting with a daring two-page spread. His frenetic drawings are accompanied by a vivid splash page, revealing the story's antagonist in a stunningly grotesque portrait. In Alex Nino's back-up feature, Korak saves a girl from a sacrificial rite in the jungle, just as a prehistoric creature emerges. Fluid and exquisite, the artwork culminates in the boy's fight with the tiger-beast (see interior page below). Perfectly paced and composed, Nino delivers one of his best bronze age works. Russ Manning's lengthy and excellent Tarzan adventure is reprinted from 1960s newspaper strips, recomposed for the comic book format. Lastly, a single page features drawings by several filipino artists, including Nino, Nestor Redondo and Alfredo Alcala. Other artists in this issue include Carmine Infantino and Gil Kane. This is number 2 of 4 Tarzan issues with Nino art and/or covers.
