The Artist Of The Jungle!
I don't own this handsome publication. At a cool one hundred or so bucks, Joe Kubert's Tarzan of the Apes - Artist's Edition is a premium item and I already own the stories at least once. But I'd love to see it more fully and take a close gander at the work Joe Kubert did on this seminal story.
This page is a sample and it's bristling with wild energy and ferocious grace. Kubert could bring that to the comics page, a fluid sense of motion tied to a real drama.
The collection contains for sure the four-part origin tale which transformed my understanding of the Ape Man for all time.
There are two other stories of Tarzan's jungle adventures included.
And for a cool three hundred bucks you can have this limited edition. Sigh, if only.
