Joe Kubert will always be my favorite Tarzan artist from the comics, but he certainly isn't the only one to make his mark. I quite like John Buscema's version of the character as well. Buscema was an artistic god to me ever since I got a copy of How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way, and he seemed to be able to illustrate just about any type of story. As much as I enjoyed his artwork on the more mainstream superhero titles, for me he really shined on titles like Tarzan and Conan. He was great at mixing in fantastical elements with realistic looking landscapes and giving his characters a broad range of facial expression.
