Jungle Drama

Joe Kubert wasn't just about war drama. He was about jungle drama too. His Tarzan renderings are probably the best in the whole comic history of Edgar Rice Burroughs' character, including Hal Foster's. Unfortunately I thought many of the stories were rather lackluster, as most jungle stories tend to be, in my opinion. I just wish he had done more of ERB's Mars or Venus art.

These are a few of my favorite Tarzans by Joe.

One thing that I've consciously noticed about these various pictures by Kubert is that he seems to eschew the practice of outlining characters with a thicker line.

Man, these covers make me want to buy those magazines. Very enticing.

Now this is where I fell in love with Joe Kubert's art. His run on the Tarzan title was phenomenal.

My first comic was a Kubert Tarzan! I don't think that comics ever got any better than that.

Hi - I really liked John Buscema's Tarzan, and Nestor Redondo's Rima The Jungle Girl and Dave Steven's Jungle Girls were amazing.
