A stunning, five-part adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' The Return of Tarzan highlights this archival collection, which reprints Joe Kubert's Tarzan comics, issues #215 through #224. With color restoration based off of Tatjana Wood's original colors, this beautiful hardcover is a must-have for fans of pulse-pounding adventure tales and students of the graphic narrative. Writing, drawing and editing a monthly Tarzan comic-book series in the 1970s, Joe Kubert was able to illustrate the adventures of his childhood hero and produce some of the most engaging pages of his career. Tarzan: The Joe Kubert Years Volume 2, also includes "Death is My Brother," "The Renegades," "The Black Queen" and other dynamic stories inspired by Burroughs' classic books.

Joe Kubert's superb run on Tarzan in the early 1970s continues its superb (though expensive) reprint series from Dark Horse. Volume 2 encompasses issues 215-224, all written and illustrated by Kubert (except for partial issues pencilled by Hal Foster and Frank Thorne) with even greater confidence than the issues captured in volume 1. Man's inhumanity, either to his fellow man or to nature, is a common theme in issues such as "The Renegades," in which a band of thieves masquerades as Africans in order to loot treasure from the City of the Dead, or "The Trophy," in which a big-game hunter finds the tables turned. The centerpiece of the volume, just as it was with volume 1, is a multi-issue adaptation of an original Edgar Rice Burroughs novel. The Return of Tarzan is a sweeping five-issue saga in which Tarzan, in order to dispel the memory of Jane Porter, travels to Paris and then to the Algerian desert, continually crossing paths with the villainous Nicholas Rokoff. Eventually he travels to the fabled forbidden city of Opar, where he meets the high priestess La, a plot line that Kubert continued in an original story in the last issue of this volume. --David HoriuchiFrom Publishers Weekly:
Best known for his work on Sgt. Rock, Kubert has lent his lean, gritty skills to a number of popular titles over the years, including this legendary run on Tarzan in the 1970s. This second volume of reprints is chock-full of entertaining and appropriately over-the-top action, from shark wrestling and treasure hunting to, well, ape wrestling. There is even a complete five-issue story arc based upon Edgar Rice Burroughs's The Return of Tarzan, featuring the hero in his cheetah-print underwear gallivanting around Europe. Tarzan himself is a classically satisfying hero, combining an unwavering sense of honor with sheer animal ferocity—not to mention a knack for getting captured that rivals only Batman's. Kubert's slightly hammy prose is always entertaining, and his use of thick, solid black lines lends a thrilling expressionist element to every panel. Contrasted with the volume's crisp color reproductions (based on Tatjana Woods's original colors), the stark shading techniques stand well apart from most of today's adventure titles—especially in the cover illustrations, all of which are included here. Kubert's Tarzan is the ideal entertainment for a lazy afternoon, and this collection finds the artist and his hero at their best. (Mar.)
