Special Order - takes 3-4 weeks! 1967-69. Our Highest Recommendation. Edited and designed by Dean Mullaney. "Russ Manning was a natural storyteller...his instantly recognizable style, though clean, never fails to evoke the lushness of Tarzan's jungles or the reptilian textures of dinosaur skin. His story's fantasy elements were made believable by his careful rendering of the realistic, non-fantasy items and background features that were also a part of the panel's contents. Like his hero, Hal Foster (of Prince Valiant and Tarzan Fame), Manning may also be one of the most underrated writers in comics. His beautiful art is so captivating that it's easy to understand how it might overshadow his scripts."--from the Foreword by William Stout.

His beautiful art is so captivating that it's easy to understand how it might overshadow his scripts."--from the Foreword by William Stout.

After years of work for Dell Comics (Brothers of the Spear, Roy Rogers, Magnus Robot Fighter), in 1967 the Edgar Rice Burroughs estate asked Manning to take over the long running and very successful Tarzan newspaper strip. And to bring it back to the original vision of ERB. With assists from Bill Stout, Mike Royer and even Dave Stevens, Manning eventually created 22 original Sunday storylines and nine daily strip adventures. The action took place from Pal-ul-don to Opar and Pellucidar-At the Earth's Core.

This is the first of four volumes collecting the entire run of his Tarzan newspaper strips. In this volume are more than 650 daily and Sunday strips (the Sundays are in glorious full color), taken from ERB estate file copies. Reproduction is superb.
