Tarzan saves Jane from the beast men of Opar, beats down nemesis Nikolas Rokoff and generally saves the day. With this strong issue, Joe Kubert ends his adaptation of “The Return of Tarzan” on a high note.
Tarzan’s continued clashes with the villainous Nikolas Rokoff lead the jungle king back to the wilds of Africa. An abundance of coincidences undermine this outing, making it one of the weaker issues of Joe Kubert’s Tarzan run.
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.
Pining over Jane, Tarzan heads to Paris – where he learns the human may be the most dangerous animal of all! Joe Kubert continues his masterful adaptations of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ novels with “The Return of Tarzan.”
Tarzan becomes king of the apes, but realizes he’s a man. More humans – including Jane – come to the jungle. The pacing on this third DC issue is a little off, but, overall, Joe Kubert delivers another excellent issue.
Marooned in the jungle, the doomed Greystokes give birth to a son who is eventually raised by apes. Inspired work from Joe Kubert, along with nice Murphy Anderson art on the John Carter backup, make for a stellar DC debut.
