In conjunction with DC's launch of fantasy / adventure titles, writer and artist Joe Kubert revived Tor, the caveman whose legend began in the early 1950s. Tor was now a more experiences caveman, and Kubert a far more seasoned story teller. His powerful vistas provided authoritative narration as Tor recalled his younger years and the challenges of manhood - challenges that conveyed man's primitive, instinctive nature. Kubert's revival of Tor lasted 6 issues, though the series' sheer power and brilliance has transcended time.
