This second volume of a 4-book series collecting the entire run of the Tarzan newspaper strip by Russ Manning presents five complete daily storylines and five complete Sundays adventures. In the dailies from October 29, 1969 through March 31, 1971, Tarzan meets the Stone Pharaoh while his son, Korak, encounters the Gryf Worshippers. In the Sundays from May 18, 1969 through January 17, 1971, Tarzan embarks on a safari to Opar and we learn the backstory on how he met his wife and life partner Jane. The more than 600 daily and Sunday strips are reproduced from the Edgar Rice Burroughs file copies. Optional: In 1967 Manning was selected by the Edgar Rice Burroughs estate to take over the strip and bring it back to the original Burroughs vision. With assists by Bill Stout, Mike Royer, and Dave Stevens, Manning created a modern classic.
Russell Manning was an American comic book artist who created the series Magnus, Robot Fighter and illustrated suchnewspaper comic strips as Tarzan and Star Wars. He was inducted into the Comic Book Hall of Fame in 2006.
