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!

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 HoriuchiFrom Publishers Weekly:
Edgar Rice Burroughs's Tarzan of the Apes first appeared in prose form in 1912, launching a publishing and film empire. Tarzan comics have been published since 1929, and while the jungle lord's adventures have been illustrated by several legendary artists, perhaps none resonates as powerfully with comics readers as Kubert (Yossel, Sgt. Rock). Long a Tarzan fan himself, Kubert leapt at the chance to delineate the series in 1972 while working at DC Comics, and the results are simply stunning. Based on Burroughs's first Tarzan novel and a subsequent collection of short stories, this vibrantly colorful edition thrusts readers headfirst into a lush jungle setting in which danger lurks behind each tree, and the only law is that of the wild. Tarzan's world is a violent and unforgiving one, a point savagely driven home on every page as the narrative retells the hero's origins and rise to power as the uncontested master of his domain. This is grandly entertaining stuff for both old and new readers alike; a cornucopia of excitement that has not aged a day, collected in an edition that can be reread and savored for years to come.
