He has the animals prepare black juice from berries and uses it to dye a female leopard called Kira black. She sits on the council rock and lures the panther into the open. Tawn and Ogg capture him and Wambi delivers an ultimatum: Here we have the animals living in peace again: But the instalment has interesting real-world details about the behaviour of hornbills and moves further in the direction of developing a cast of animal characters.
Although Wambi communicates with the animals, we only ever see them talk to him: Hitlo, the ruler of Cartho, is looking for peoples to conquer. Sir Champion is in time to see them depart. He organises the quick! The fleet sails for Cartho. Hitlo sends her to be tortured. Sir Champion KOs him and uses his clothing to impersonate him. Sir Champion releases Camila. During their escape they find Chrisa, the former ruler Hitlo deposed, and release him too.
He has a Christ-like demeanour. When they see it the Carthonians attempt to flee. Camilla gives chase and there is a battle. Hitlo is killed when Sir Champion and Camilla board his ship, but a caption describes him as accidentally killing himself:.
The Carthonians want Camilla to rule them, but she tells them to accept Chrisa back. He promises their kingdoms will live and trade in peace, and the Lost Empire ships sail for home. This issue we get Hitlo, a ruler with designs for conquest and enslavement. DC Indexes says the issue came out in August, so at this point the Germans had completed their conquest of Western Europe and were bombing Britain. As in the previous issue Sir Champion does most of the hero stuff. From the art one might suppose Hitlo was stabbed by Sir Champion or Camilla.
Perhaps the editor or writer thought if they just killed him it would be too much like an execution. This might be a case of the artist not understanding the script. Are the Carthonians supposed to be covered in congealed lead? Standing stock still to avoid stepping in it? Caught by the lead as it congeals? They prepare an attack fleet and surround Earth with their planets, which they can move through space. Roy Lance has forsaken the jungle and now an astronomer of the future. He sees the arrival of the planets and warns the authorities. An Earth fleet rises to meet the attackers, but the alien fleet is superior and wipes it out.
The invaders begin to die from a malady. He escapes and tells the other slaves. The aliens flee Earth in their ships. Lance pursues them and brings some down with his ray. For how water behaves in a vacuum see here. Lance calls up his former master on the tele-radio to gloat. They chat about his dream. This story is pretty dire, in writing and art. But the panels showing the opening of the dam are surprisingly good:. In contrast, this one has a splash panel and final page showing Roy Lance in a jungle setting. The splash panel shows Lance swing-kicking an alien.
But the panels on the last page where Lance discusses his dream with his friend must have been created for the present issue. The thing is the splash panel and final page look like they were drawn by the same artist or artists as the rest of the story. So are they evidence this story was created for this issue, not a repurposed Planet Comics one? The answer, I believe, is no.
Granval was a scientist of the future. Future-Lance dresses comparably to Granval in Planet Comics 8 and is depicted as a scientist and inventor.
It tentatively attributes to him the pencils and inks of the one in 7. Herman Bolstein, the writer, was also credited up to 9 sometimes first and sometimes second; Golden Age comics don't always credit the writer first. The first version of this post displaced the thread Wayward Pines from the homepage. The people and animals of the jungle are being slaughtered by giant flaming purple claws.
They are artificial beings created from chemicals by Angel Eyes, a scientist who wants revenge on the jungle for the deaths of his parents. The imagery of the flaming claws is the main thrill the story has to offer. A gorilla called Mogah challenges Simba. While they are fighting a forest fire traps two young gorillas. But when he gets to them he panics and flees without them. This is the last instalment with art by William M. The bit where Mogah panics struck me as true to animal behaviour, though:. The posture of the young gorillas here looks based on observation, perhaps of some other kind of ape:.
Kismet gets lost in a sandstorm. Against the protestations of his men Thunder heads off to find him. Kismet starts digging and uncovers a door that opens upon a tunnel. At the end of the tunnel they find Anderson the Arab presiding over a game of marbles. He subjects the camel to a fiendish torture:. When Thunder tries to intervene he has them both thrown out. A woman explains Anderson is acting this way as he was recently overthrown by Ali Bahd. She asks Thunder to help and he agrees.
It's apparently an oasis city, as it has greenery. Thunder disguises himself and enters the town with Kismet. He KOs Bahd and then pretends to be the muezzin and calls the men of the town to prayer. Anderson is restored to his throne and has a gold statue of Kismet made.
With the last instalment I thought this feature was about to get really good, with attractive art married to a nice mix of comedy and adventure. But the art is much less attractive this time out. An American has been chased into a swamp by natives. He escapes by disguising himself as a witch doctor and using jitterbug moves when they invite him to dance. The Wambi story is my pick for the best one this time. It's clearly told, starts as a mystery, and has interesting nature details. The first version of this post displaced the thread Captain Comics asks and answers: Who will survive in 'Suicide Squ Three men from an isolated community of desert people called the Jahalla seek Tarzan's help.
Their land is threatened by a neighbouring people called the Sab Rigil who worship a savage elephant called Oopal that the men believe to be supernatural. They want Tarzan to kill it as then the Sab Rigil will flee. Tarzan refuses, so when he is away from home the men kidnap Jane to force him to follow them. Alerted by Jane's mental cry for help, Tarzan follows on his elephant friend Tantor.
On the way he sees three more Jahalla men following him. When Tarzan arrives at the border of the country of the Sab Rigil they meet him as night falls and offer to guide him through. When the party arrives at the river which is the border between the two lands it is attacked by Oopal, and the guides flee. The two elephants fight. Tantor wins and chases Oopal as he flees. Left alone, Tarzan crosses the river and enters the Jahalla's walled city.
He finds and threatens their ruler, but he refuses to tell Tarzan where Jane is as without Tarzan's help the Jahalla are doomed anyway. Respecting his courage, Tarzan spares him and leaves. He locates Jane by her scent and rescues her. Reaching the river, they meet up with Tantor who has been wounded by a javelin, but not seriously. They attempt to return home on Tantor, but dawn is coming and the Sab Rigil are massed along the river, so they return to the walled city to help with its defence.
The Sab Rigil approach the city following Oopal, who is now armoured and guided by a rider.
The armour protects Oopal from the attacks of the Jahalla as he smashes through the city gates. There he meets Tarzan and Tantor, who together kill him. The men of the Sab Rigil are routed and Jane forgives the Jahalla. With its images of the two elephants fighting, and the Sib Rigil advancing on the walled city led by Oopal, this is pretty much exactly the kind of story I want in a Tarzan comic. The art is similar in approach to Russ Manning's. I think it's not as good, but that's very high bar.
A Marvel artist of the era might have made the action sequences more exciting, but I don't know a Marvel writer would have shown as much understanding of how to plot a good story in this genre without spicing it up with fantastic elements. I have this story in a British Tarzan Annual from the mids, so I can't review the rest of the issue. The Ivory Child is one of Haggard's Alan Quartermain books, and references several earlier books in the series. Towards the end it also foreshadows a future one. I listened to the Librivox version of the novel, which is exceedingly well read. A complete synopsis follows.
They believe it to be a demon, but the other people of their country, the Black Kendah, worship it as a god. They also show an interest in Luna. That night they attempt to abduct her, but Alan prevents this. Some time later Ragnall seeks Alan out in Africa. She insisted on travelling to Egypt, and there went missing. Alan and Ragnall travel to Kendahland. They are met at the border by a party of White Kendah led by the magicians, but have to fight the Black Kendah when they try to cross their territory.
Alan and Hans make it to the territory of the White Kendah and are reunited with Ragnall and his manservant, Savage. Ragnall and Savage try to go there but Savage is killed by the monster snake that guards the only passage to it they know of. Hans poisons the snake, and the trio use the passage to reach the shrine.
A terrible fight follows. Jana comes with the Black Kendah forces. Alan tries to shoot him, but fails.
Hans fatally injures him and is fatally injured in turn. Jana snatches the idol of the Child from Lady Ragnall and smashes it before dying. This re-enactment of the death of her child restores Lady Ragnall's mind. Hans dies, and Alan and Lord and Lady Ragnall return to civilisation. Ironically, there's a substantial fantastic element in Haggard's story, its apparent inspiration. The novel is also similar to Haggard's earlier Alan and the Holy Flower , in which Alan leads an expedition to obtain a sample of an orchid unknown to science.
I liked The Ivory Child more. Howard's best-known Conan stories, which I don't name here to avoid spoiling it. Preview pages from the collections Tarzan Archives: My summary - the next three paragraphs - describes the whole story, so spoilers follow.
A surviving priest tells him what happened and that they lack the money to rebuild the hospital. Tarzan guesses the point of the attack was the theft of the supplies. He trails the renegades to a river and finds their buried costumes.

They alight and travel inland to ruins from a dead civilisation where they believe they can find a fortune. They uncover an entrance and dynamite their way inside. The explosion leads Tarzan, who has found their boat, to their location. The ruins remind me of Angkor Wat in Cambodia, but they might have some other model I don't know about. The idol is of Anubis, but the god is not named. Tarzan makes a moaning noise that spooks the renegades. On of them panics, and their leader shoots him. The remaining renegades begin to loot the tomb.
One of them spots a giant gem on the idol and fights another to the death for it. When he grabs it the arms of the idol crush him to death. The leader claims the gem, and he and other survivor each fill a sack with loot and begin to leave. Tarzan confronts them, and tells them they will now pay the penalty for their murders i. They shoot at him, but he grabs a spear they stripped of jewels and kills them both with a single throw.
At this point Thorne's work was not as stylised as it was on Red Sonja , and looked more like Kubert's. This is not just due to Kubert's inks; Thorne's stories from the latter issues of Tomahawk have a similar look. It's my guess Kubert provided breakdowns see on Volume 3 below.
The story mostly focuses on the renegades. The sequence depicting the attack on the village is effectively-told and brutal. It's largely a visual sequence, with captions but almost no dialogue. But I don't like how the Thorne-Kubert team handled Tarzan's face; it has a weak look to me.
Apparently this is due to Kubert, as he has the same look in Kubert-pencilled issues. The first part of the story - the attack on the village and the renegades' trip upriver - struck me as obviously imitated from the movie Tarzan's Greatest Adventure The latter part of the plot reminded me of Tarzan and the Trappers , but there the parallels are much less close and that part of the story might have some other model. The cover, by Kubert, uses the title "The Renegade!
Beyond the Farthest Star is a collection of two late novellas by Burroughs. This instalment might be part of an adaptation, but the GCD doesn't say. The lead story didn't have credits either. The GCD's credits for it are confirmed by Kubert's introduction to the collection. Sealing a building containing untold riches by dynamiting the entrance is a waste of time.
In Egypt there are cases where tomb robbers or would-be robbers burrowed through the walls! One imagines the archaelogists who eventually excavated the city wept at the damage to the entrance portal and chamber. And it's not like Tarzan was above looting a lost city himself. The preview of Volume 2 also has the first 15 pages of the lead story from the previous issue, "The Mine! This is a mash-up of new pages and art by Kubert and rescripted panels from a Hal Foster Sunday sequence. I don't think the combination works very well. It also has images of two pages of Kubert's breakdowns and the corresponding finished pages for the lead story in The story was incidentally another adaptation, of one of the short stories in The Jungle Tales of Tarzan.
I must confess I didn't know there was a difference. The confusion is found in the story. It's in the public domain and can be found online. The preview of Volume 3 at Amazon includes a page which shows Kubert's layouts for the final page of "The Renegades". The remaining two issues reprinted Kubert-period stories. The last issue reprinted "The Renegades" with a new cover by Alfredo Alcala. Toonopedia lists her first appearance as , which is when the comic started, but the GCD says she first appeared in Wags 46, dated for Jan.
Fiction House's Jumbo Comics started as a tabloid that reprinted Eisner and Iger material, including features from Wags. Sheena appeared from the first issue, initially in Wags reprints. One of the features he drew was "The Diary of Dr. The GCD currently takes the story to be reprinted from Wags , but it doesn't specify the issue and that might be a mistake. The costume made its Jumbo Comics debut on the cover of 9.
Hayward" , and "The Hawk" as "Hawks of the Seas". It shows Sheena saving an unconscious woman from a lion while a fire blazes in the background. Sheena's opponent inside is a jungle queen. A character calls her a witch, but she isn't one really, and there's no lion fight or burning glade. A lot of Fiction House comics have this kind of mismatch. My guess is the covers were prepared by Fiction House and the Sheena stories by the Iger Shop, and Fiction House thought it unnecessary to coordinate. The issue also has a Sheena text story, but the cover doesn't match it either.
It's a pretty good cover. The GCD doesn't know who drew it. Sheena and Bob are catching turtles. The zebroid is killed by a leopard. He has fallen under the influence of a "jungle witch" who rules an "ancient village". The queen feigned friendliness, but afterwards attempted to kill him. He was hit by a spear as he fled on the zebroid. The trio travel to the village. As the women are challenging each other the son makes an appreciative comment about Sheena's looks, so Bob attacks him. The queen orders her guards to seize them, but Sheena seizes the queen's chariot and escapes This is a violent jungle adventure, and if you like this kind of thing, the good stuff.
Sheena is a true action hero, as fierce as any jungle king. She doesn't talk to animals.
He needs to be rescued here. The scene where he attacks the son is a male catfight. Its ruling caste is white and apparently of Roman descent. This isn't mentioned in the dialogue, but it may have been intended by the writer as the evil queen executes her prisoners in violent ways in an arena, as the Romans did. The queen's method is to immobilise her prisoners and have riders on zebroids gore them with horns strapped to the animals' muzzles.
Given how dangerous they're said to be I take it the one in the sequence was drugged. According to the Wikipedia article zorses are immune to nagana pest sleeping sickness , so breeding them does make sense. ZX-5 was initially an agent of a European country called Chesterland, but apparently somewhere along the way he was recast as an American agent. The series continued to Their villains were occult scientists. But the second reprinted adventure involved time travel, and the result was the feature became time travel-themed.
