Indexer Notes

Tarzan vs. lion (painting). Cover pencil, ink, & color credits from Ken Webber (December 17, 2003).

Richard Richmond says this is a Gollub cover. The muscle development of the Tarzan figure is a dead giveaway as to which artist did this painting. Gollub was a body builder and a wrestler and he was an expert when it came to drawing and painting muscle patterns on humans.
