Korak in Pal-ul-don

KORAK'S KOMIX

A Bibliography and Summary Project

Steve "Korak" Allsup

This series will become a complete episode guide to the Korak comic books. I would appreciate any comments on these stories, as well as any further information on the writers, inkers, and colorists of the Gold Key series. Some of you may have interviewed Manning or Spiegle or something like that and know this obscure info. It is hard to know since Gold Key did not list the art credits like Marvel Comics are famous for doing. For the most part, KORAK, SON OF TARZAN is a very creative and imaginative series with great entertainment value. Someday I hope that at least the early Russ Manning issues can be reprinted in a deluxe format.
