Tarzan of the Apes #175 - Russ Manning art


Tarzan of the Apes v1 #175, 1968 - After a battle between ant-man armies, Tarzan finds himself is shrunk to their miniature size. Russ Manning illustrates yet another exotic adventure with great skill and enthusiasm. The layouts are quickly paced and confidently designed. Even Manning's underground scenes seem claustrophobic (see interior page below). This issue concludes the adaption of Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan and the Ant Men. This is number 130 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.
