Each volume of this series so far - 8 to date with #9 due soon, features an introduction by a current comic book professional, or someone related to the industry, unanimously singing the praises of the artist Jesse Marsh, who is responsible for all the stories and features reprinted here. The stories are all scripted by Gaylord DuBois, who is due some praise also, of course, but this series is celebrating Jesse Marsh.
I started reading American comics in the early 1960s, but until this reprint series started I had never heard of Jesse Marsh, who died young in 1966. I only ordered volume 1 of this series out of idle curiosity, as I had bought the preceding three volumes of Joe Kubert's Tarzan archives from the same publisher. It is now the archive series that I most look forward to, and I collect all the DC and Marvel archive/masterworks series. I don't know if I would have even looked at it as a child in the 1960s, when Marvel ruled supreme, but as an adult, I find it a pleasing and entertaining read; the stories are not pompously dramatic, and the art is not spectacularly superheroic - the stories just flow naturally along, there is a continuity of sorts but not issue-to-issue, when some stories occasionally pick up from earlier ones. I just pick up the book and drift along with the stories. They are reasonably action packed, and there is the occasional fight with a lion or gorilla, but always in a different setting, and for a different reason.
The range of stories in this volume feature the following:
Continuing adventure featuring the Crocodile tribe from the previous volume.
The city of Athne in the occasionally-prehistoric lost world of Pal-ul-Don again.
Helping Dr MacWhirtle rescue a missing European.
Helping the baboon tribe against the Leopard-men.
Rescuing an air-crew from Pal-ul-Don.
Cathne vs. the Crocodile tribe.
Helping a fishing village against the Crocodile-men.
Rescuing Paul Darlan's son from an Arab city.
Freeing slaves from a white tyrant in a lost city.
Culling a pack of wild dogs threatening to overrun the veldt.
