JESSE MARSH
Jesse Mace Marsh worked for Disney Studios from 1939 to 1948 working on projects such as Pinocchio and Fantasia. His first work for Western Publishing appeared in 1945 and he worked as staff artist for them until his death in 1966. He produced an amazing body of work in addition to his work on the Tarzan series: Gene Autry, Daniel Boone, Davy Crockett and many more. He also drew three issues of John Carter of Mars in the 4-Color series - these issues were also reprinted in the mid-60s.

Postal regulations dictated that comics contain features in addition to the main book title so DuBois contributed series such as "Mabu", "Two Against the Jungle" and "Boy". Issue number 25 in October 1951 saw the debut of the popular series "Brothers of the Spear", which would run for over 25 years and which, in issue 39, would feature the first professional work of brilliant artist Russ Manning.  Manning eventually took over the Tarzan series in November 1965 following Marsh's retirement. The first "Brothers of the Spear" episode occupied a mere six pages, but it launched a serialized story that eventually grew to epic proportions.
