    Alex Blum - Classics Illustrated #90 Complete 44-page Story "Green Mansions" Original Art (Gilberton, 1951). Green Mansions tells the saga of Abel Guevez De Argensola, a political exile, who flees Venezuela and civilization, and travels deep into the South American jungles, then meets with native tribes, and finds one to take him in. The jungle folk are friendly, until Abel's curiosity gets the best of him, and he explores a "forbidden forest", so feared by the tribe, he is ostracized for merely having tread its taboo grounds. Abel befriends a mysterious girl, Rima, who lives in the forest, and seems more faerie, or bird-like, than human. Soon a classic love story unfolds, intriguing, beautiful, and tragic. The image area of each page measures 12" x 18", and aside from an occasional lettering correction paste-up, the art is in Excellent condition. Alex Blum's art is ideally suited for the lush, romantic setting of this fable. DC comics later adapted this book for their fondly remembered Rima, the Jungle Girl title.
