The Unauthorized Tarzan...

Recently Dark Horse comics put out this tome of fantastic Tarzan tales otherwise forbidden by the ERB people until NOW!!!  In the 60's Charlton comics ( Thinking Tarzan was public domain ) started producing Tarzan comics...mostly with art by Sam Glanzman...the comic book was titled "JUNGLE TALES OF TARZAN"  it was an anthology of short stories...but it was not public domain.  The ERB people took all the art and destroyed it and told Charlton to stop immediately producing any more Tarzan comics...They had no choice.
      Well lucky for us...Dark Horse has collected the four issues ...along with some unseen art for a Tarzan newspaper strip drawn by Sam Glanzman and put out this fantastic book.  The whole story is told in the foreward and a special passage about the rediscovered Tarzan art otherwise unseen for 49 years!!!

I highly advise ...go out and get this book.  You will not be disappointed.  It's got great story adaptations and fantastic art.  Needless to say I love this book.
