Tarzan of the Apes #172 - Russ Manning art


Tarzan of the Apes v1 #172, 1967 - Overthrown by her brutish high priest, Queen La flees her beloved Kingdom of Opar. Meanwhile, a Tarzan imposter uses his deceptive looks to his advantage. Russ Manning continues to deliver aesthetically pleasing works. His sharp, streamlined style works especially well in his depictions of lions and majestic architecture (see interior page above). His opening scene is equally good, capturing the precise moment Tarzan, Jane and Korak return home. This issue adapts the Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan and the Golden Lion. This is number 127 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.
