At long last Dark Horse has fulfilled a long held desire of mine: to see this beautiful story in hardcovers for a whole new audience to enjoy. This was one of my two boyhood favorites( the other being Young Hawk, the wonderful backup story running in Lone Ranger comics from Dell). BOS ran in the back of Dell's Tarzan comics and was one of the reasons I bought Tarzan for years( okay I loved the swanboats of Lutor in Tarzan too). The saga of Danel and Natongo ran for years and gave us one of the greatest villains ever in comics, the mastermind of the witchmen of Aba Zulu, Nagopa! And the allies who supported Danel were stalwart and dedicated especially General Kongoni and the ever loyal Colonel Mothibi( almost a third Brother). Give this story a chance and it will sweep you along from mundane Zululand to the fantastic realm of Aba Zulu deep in the central mountains of an Africa that never was, but should have been. The early art by Jesse Marsh might not be outstanding, but it serves the story until Marsh's then assistant, Russ Manning, takes up the pen and delivers the most beautiful fine line artwork since Alex Raymond and Warren Tufts. It was a style that Manning would refine later. And I haven't even told you yet about our heroine, the beautiful Tavane, beloved of Danel. Most beautifully drawn woman in comics since Dale Arden or Queen Aleta. Yo Tavane! Please try this fabulous adventure for yourself. Warmly recomended!
