Tarzan #218 - Joe Kubert art & cover

Joe Kubert
Tarzan of the Apes v1 #218, 1972 - Seeking trophies to mount and display, a white hunter kills animals with wanton abandon. The tables are soon turned when Tarzan intervenes. Joe Kubert's drawings are on target, conveying the cruelty that comes with big game hunting. His page layouts and sequencing are even better. In a scene where a rhino is felled, the artist uses silent panels to capture the hunter's concentration beforehand (see interior page below). Other artists in this issue include Murphy Anderson. This is number 12 of 43 Tarzan issues with Kubert art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Kubert or Tarzan issues. See also this blog's Kubert checklist.
