    Description

    Bob Lubbers Tarzan Daily Comic Strip #3637 Original Art dated 4-9-51 (United Feature Syndicate, 1951). Lubbers' Tarzan period has been overshadowed by his slightly later work with Li'l Abner's Al Capp. It is that 1950-54 hitch with Tarzan, of course, that established Lubbers as an ascending star of the profession. This suspenseful example finds the jungle man stealing into a cannibal village, braced for a daring rescue. The tension is palpable. Lubbers' use of Zipatone shading film establishes an ominous mood quite beyond any simple decorative function. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 19" x 5". Pronounced overall toning, but with an unusual lack of the yellowing that often affects Zipatone layers of this age. Very Good condition. From the Tex Blaisdell Archives.
