HASH(0xa846e230) out of 5 stars An unknown (?) classic May 10 2011
By Squirr-El - Published on
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.
