Tarzan #154 - Russ Manning art

Tarzan of the Apes v1 #154, 1965 - In the lead story, an American space capsule touches down deep in a forgotten jungle. Tarzan aids two astronauts in avoiding the prehistoric animals that reside there. Starting with this issue, Russ Manning begins illustrating the title character on a regular basis. Two Tarzan stories and a Brothers of the Spear tale are adeptly drawn by the artist. The opening tale stands out in its depictions of Giant saber-tooth tigers, sloths and hyenas. "Descent into the Past" was later reprinted in Tarzan #202. Other artists in this issue include George Wilson (cover). This is number 115 of 132 Tarzan issues with Manning art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Manning or Tarzan issues. See also this blog's Russ Manning checklist.
