    Jeff Jones - Tarzan at the Earth's Core, Cover and Complete 8-Page Story (undated) This is a seminal piece that helped Jeff Jones launch his career into comics and become the fantastic artist he is known to be. Included in this lot are the original cover art to the book and the following original eight art pages. This early artwork, done in the formative stages of Jones' artistic mastery, features many stunning action-packed panels. To wit, note the panels of Tarzan swinging through the jungle and great sabretooth cat on the last page. There are many awe-inspiring panels in the pages such as the zeppelin on page three, the fantastically rendered cat on page six, and the most spectacular wooly mammoth splash on page eight. Overall, the condition of the pages is very good. A couple of the pages have some glue stains where individual panels were glued to the art board. It appears that one panel is missing from page seven. There is almost no white-out on any of the ages. There are no preliminary pencil lines, blue lines or erasure marks on any of the pages. The logo area of the cover page has a one inch crease. The art itself is crisp, clean and sharp. The cover image measures approximately 7.5 inches by 9.5 inches while the individual panel pages measure approximately 14 inches by 21 inches each.
