Rima, Friend to the Animals

"Rima, Friend to the Animals" from Rima the Jungle Girl #1 (DC, 1974) by Robert Kanigher, Joe Kubert (layouts only) and Nestor Redondo
A forgotten classic from the 70s, probably because Rima was a licensed character (from Hudson's Green Mansions). Great art by Redondo, with covers by the then master of jungle action, Joe Kubert. The short series also featured SF back-ups by Kanigher, usually with Alex Nino. An odd choice, perhaps, but artistically of following a similar style.

  1. I blame Michael May for turning me on to jungle comics I'd never known before.

  2. Actually, by the time "Rima" came out, "Green Mansions" was in the public domain.

  3. My bad for using the word "licensed" to mean anything "pre-created".
