Riassunto: Few artists can capture visceral action sequences and the dynamic human form like Joe Kubert, and his expressive talents are fully realized in his 1970s Tarzan comics. This beautiful archive collection - with an introduction by Kubert and color restoration based off of Tatjana Wood's original colors - is a must-have for fans of timeless adventure tales and Joe Kubert's undeniable intensity and skill. Beginning with this first volume, Dark Horse's hardcover series reprints Kubert's entire Tarzan work. Join us on these primal adventures, as Tarzan discovers the pleasures and perils of the African wilds... and the many dangers posed by both man and beast! Joe Kubert's Tarzan, Volume One, reprints issues #207 through #214 of the 1970s run, featuring "Origin of the Ape Man" (a bold adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' first Tarzan novel), "Jungle Tales of Tarzan," and other stories inspired by Burroughs' books - all written and drawn by the legendary Joe Kubert!
Recensione: Joe Kubert's Tarzan was one of the rare collaborations between character and artist that now seem definitive regardless of how many other talented creators try their hand--think also Curt Swan's Superman, Jack Kirby's Fantastic Four, and Barry Windsor-Smith's Conan. Tarzan: The Joe Kubert Years, vol. 1 collects the first eight issues of Kubert's run as writer-illustrator-letterer in 1972, encompassing Tarzan 207-214. Most significant is the first four issues, which Kubert used for an engrossing adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' first Tarzan novel. After this telling, the remaining four issues seem rather slight, but Kubert's dramatic art and stories are never less than interesting. Dark Horse's beautiful volume includes Tatjana Wood's original colors restored, and a new introduction by Kubert himself. --David Horiuchi
