Tarzan of the Apes #157 - Russ Manning art


Tarzan of the Apes v1 #157, 1966 - Edgar Rice Burroughs' The Beasts of Tarzan is freely adapted in this issue. Married to Jane and living in London, Tarzan's child is suddenly kidnapped by an old arch-enemy. Russ Manning fills the pages with plenty of action, featuring a no-nonsense, gun-toting Jane. To his credit, the African jungle and Victorian England are equally well drawn. Other artists in this issue include George Wilson (cover). This is number 118 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.
