Review: Tarzan #220

After surviving a duel in France, Tarzan is offered a government position that takes him undercover in Algeria. Too many rushed scenes make this a subpar example of Joe Kubert’s Tarzan work, but it’s still an enjoyable outing.

Review: Marvel Team-Up #54

Things go from bad to worse as Spider-Man finds himself imprisoned, with Hulk and Woodgod, within the mysterious Tranquility Base. Bill Mantlo’s script is just so-so, but the big draw here is a young John Byrne’s quickly improving art.

A comic-book-drawing duck is pulled into the pirate world of the Duckaneer, and high-sea hijinks ensue. Frank Brunner’s lead feature leads off a talent-infused lineup – including work by Howard Chaykin, Dave Stevens and others – but the stories just aren’t on par with the art.

Review: Imagine #1

Like the Image comics of the 1990s, Star*Reach’s anthology titles like Imagine often let star artists experiment with writing – and the results could be just as self-indulgent. This issue includes work by Neal Adams, Marshall Rogers, Dave Sim and others.
