I think we started with #97, but here's another cool Pence magazine-sized comic anyway.

Looks like we have reached the point where I no longer have any
numbers in my collection to share until we reach #227...but I'll
be sure to keep watching and voting.

When DC Comics acquired the rights to ERB's Tarzan of the Apes, I admit I struggled getting used to Joe Kubert's art style, which I always found was inked to heavily (by himself). I was used to the clean style of the great Russ Manning who was followed by Doug Wildey and Paul Norris at Western Publishing. In subsequent re-readings of Kubert's apeman I grew to appreciate his work, especially his adaptations of ERB's original stories which were lengthier versions. Kubert's "The Return of Tarzan" is an excellent piece of work.

@Maritimer I agree that Kubert’s style is a departure from the Tarzan artists that came before, but I thought it was well suited to the title. It is obvious that Kubert was a fan of the novels and loved doing these. His enthusiasm really shows in his work, which I believe is among his best. And for the record, “The Return of Tarzan” is still my favorite of the original ERB novels. Anyone who has never experienced these books should go out and read them immediately. They still hold up over a century later!

@michaelekrupp, I still have my collection of all 24 Tarzan novels. Thomas Yeates did an excellent adaptation of The Return of Tarzan for Dark Horse comics as well. Dark Horse did some interesting stories with Tarzan up to and including their last project, The Once and Future Tarzan.
