Please read the Library Journal and Publishers Weekly reviews above they both do a great job of describing this terrific book.
I really enjoy the way that Joe Kubert presents how Tarzan teaches himself to read. In just a few panels he captures the essence of how that process is discribed in the novel.
In the original novel "Tarzan of the Apes" which Joe's first stories are losely based upon; Tarzan is naked in the begining. The way Joe draws naked Tarzan -always using the action to conceal his genitals- is ingenious.
This hardcover book contains a collection of Joe Kubert's comic book serias published By DC Comics (as Joe's fasinating introduction makes clear) yet strangely the publisher Dark Horse Books has removed the DC logo from the covers as well as all the credits on the inside covers. I can find no explanation for why this was done anywhere. My best guess is that it is some sort of trademark complication.
SPL comic book fans will not find this hardcover book in the Central Library comic book and graphic novels section on the third floor. It is located on the 8th floor in the 741.5 area (when it is not checked out) this is the reason it is not getting checked out and read as much as it deserves to be.
The writer of the discription seems to think that telling us that the color restoration is based off of Tatjana Wood's original colors is an important selling point. With all due respect to Tatjana Wood I can see nothing extraordinary about the color; in fact I am certain that no lion ever had green eyes.
I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did and that it will encourage you to read the original novels by Edgar Rice Burroughs.
