Tarzan of the Apes #176 - Russ Manning art


Tarzan of the Apes v1 #176, 1968 - Tracking an American hunter and English photographer, Tarzan discovers a society of medieval knights in an unknown part of Africa. Russ Manning's layouts meet expectations, but his drawings begins to ebb in this later work. Mike Royer does the bulk of the inking, lacking some of the precision of his mentor. The results are mixed but lack fine detail overall. This issue begins to adapt Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan Lord of the Jungle. Other artists in this issue include Tom Massey and George Wilson (cover). This is number 131 of 132 Tarzan issues with Manning art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Manning or Tarzan issues.
