Book Description

Nov. 16 2010 Tarzan: The Jesse Marsh Years (Book 7)
Join Tarzan, Jane, Boy, and their animal companions as they encounter new friends, old enemies, and undiscovered lands in the wilds of Africa. In addition to stories featuring favorite recurring characters — such as the oddball scientist Dr. MacWhirtle, the lion-taming people of Cathne, cruel Queen La, and the Waziri warriors — Tarzan meets a group of Texan cowboys out to rope lions, a filmmaker documenting African wildlife, and the marsh-dwelling people of Lutor. Always a help to his friends, whether they're man or beast, Tarzan faithfully thwarts the plans of slavers, cannibals, and poachers who would do them harm.

5.0 out of 5 stars An unknown (?) classic May 10 2011
By No More Mr. Mice Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This volume reprints issues 33-38 of Dell's Tarzan Comic from June-November 1952 - 214 pages including covers and inside-cover adverts. Three issues are 28 pages and four are (approximately) 44 pages - I assume there are non-Tarzan features not reprinted here, as the sub-title is "The Jesse Marsh Years".

Each volume of this series so far - 8 to date with #9 due soon, features an introduction by a current comic book professional, or someone related to the industry, singing the praises of the artist; this volume has comic artist Bruce Jones, who also introduced volume 6. They are unanimous in praising the work of artist Jesse Marsh. I started reading comics in the early 1960s, and until this series started I had never heard of Jesse Marsh, who died young in 1966. I only ordered volume 1 of this series out of idle curiosity, as I had bought the preceding three volumes of Joe Kubert's Tarzan archives from the same publisher. It is now the archive series that I most look forward to, and I collect all the DC and Marvel archive/masterworks series. I don't know if I would have even looked at it as a child in the 1960s, when Marvel ruled supreme, but as an adult, I find it a pleasing and entertaining read; the stories are not pompously dramatic, and the art is not spectacularly superheroic - the stories just flow naturally along, there is a continuity of sorts but not issue-to-issue, when some stories occasionally pick up from earlier ones. I just pick up the book and drift along with the stories. They are reasonably action packed, and there are few repetitive set-pieces (unlike the TV series!); there is the occasional fight with a lion or gorilla, but always in a different setting, and for a different reason, no clichés here. And no chest-beating.

The range of stories in this volume feature the following:
Explorer/scientist Dr. MacWhirtle, continued from a previous story;
Rescuing a lost white woman (not as clichéd as it sounds)
Meeting a new tribe in the lost prehistoric land of Pal-ul-Don, fighting against the Crocodile tribe (recurring villains in Pal-ul-Don)
A full-length story featuring the cities of gold and ivory (in Pal-ul-Don) - Cathne (trained lions) and Athne (elephant-riders); Cathne has been destroyed by a volcano and the inhabitants are looking for a site for a new city, pursued by the Athneans.
Still in New Athne.
Visits the new tribe fighting the Crocodile tribe, with a war-party of the Waziri.
Meets a tribe of white giants and rescues their slaves. Features a volcano - Pal-ul-Don is very volcanic.
Defeats Arab slavers (recurring troublemakers) with the help of a tribe of baboons.
Continues with the Waziri against the Crocodile tribe.
European treasure hunters raiding Opar.
