Bring on the Back-ups: "Babes in the Woods" and "Into the Nooblian Valley" by Michael Kaluta

What have we got here, Groove-ophiles? It looks like Mike Kaluta's final Carson of Venus story for DC's Korak mag! We've just gotta dive into this one..."Babes in the Woods" from Korak...Son of Tarzan #56 (November 1973)!

But wait, there's more! While that was Kaluta's last CoV tale for Korak, his final CoV mini-epic appeared a few months later in Tarzan #230 (February 1974), "Into the Noobolian Valley".

Sadly, "The Black Castle" never appeared, though DC did reprint several stories from this series in Tarzan Family in 1975-76.


  1. I sure wish Kaluta had been able to continue this series somewhere. I loved it!

  2. WOW! I never saw this before. I was a HUGE fan of his when he drew the Shadow! Just beautiful. It's a shame he couldn't keep doing the Shadow. I would had loved to seen him draw Doc Savage & the Avenger too!
