    Ruben Moreira (signing as Rubimor) Tarzan #837 Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 3-23-47 (United Feature Syndicate, 1947). When Burne Hogarth gave up art duties on the Tarzan strip for a few years beginning in 1945, he left Edgar Rice Burroughs' classic jungle lord in the very capable hands of Puerto Rican-born artist Ruben Moreira. Best remembered today for scads of work on DC titles like Rip Hunter and House of Secrets, Moreira did an outstanding job on the strip, and this example (#837), from late in his brief run, is no exception. The art is in ink over graphite with red ink key lines on two pieces of Bristol board that have been lightly taped together. The combined image area is approximately 19.5" x 26.25", and the condition is Good, with handling wear, minor insect damage (in the masthead) and light soiling.
