    Mo Gollub - Original Cover Painting for Tarzan #71 (Dell, 1955). When the Dell series of Tarzan comic books started in the mid-1940s, the first covers were drawn by Jesse Marsh, who also did the interiors. After a time, other artists were given the assignment, and sometimes photographs of the current movie Tarzan (typically Lex Barker or Gordon Scott) were used on the covers. Morris ("Mo") Gollub was without question the best artist to paint the Tarzan comic covers, with his version of Tarzan most resembling Lex Barker. Very few of his originals have survived, making this a unique opportunity for collectors. Oil on artboard, the piece measures approximately 15" x 20" and is in excellent condition. From the collection of Russ Cochran.
