    Joe Kubert Tarzan vs. Kerchak Illustration Original Art (1971). Prior to publication of the first issue of Tarzan at DC, Joe Kubert created this magnificent illustration of the Lord of the Jungle in deadly battle with his hated rival, Kerchak the killer ape. Kubert's hand written copy at the top of the page indicates this piece may have appeared as a house ad. "The real Tarzan, the Ape Man. Once again the Lord of the Jungle - as devised and created by E. R. B. - written and drawn in the manner that stirred the original readers almost 50 years ago. Starting with: the origin of Tarzan - how he grew up in the deepest jungle - the adopted son of a gorilla mother." This superb illustration has been framed to an overall size of 13" x 19", and the art is in Very Good condition. From the Joe Kubert Collection.
