Russ Manning's artwork is outstanding. In addition to providing his usual fan service by being a walking shirtless scene, Korak becomes a dude in distress in one of the stories. In the second story, while attempting to free a captive baby elephant at night, Korak is discovered by the tribe which captured it. The tribesmen rush the insufficiently stealthy jungle boy with a net. He is subdued, tied up, and forced to survive a gauntlet of armed warriors and wild animals. In both stories, Korak comes across as a handsome boy scout in a leopard-skin loincloth. He has a good heart that propels him into action, often impetuously. Fortunately, he has strength, agility, and intelligence to back it up. In the first story, he rescues a captive priestess and two intended sacrifices to a giant vulture god. In the second story, he rallies a band of apes and a herd of elephants to rescue their captive kin.
