Tarzan In Color!
With all the outstanding reprinting of classic comic adventure strips which has been going on in recent years (Flash Gordon multiple times, Popeye, Dick Tracy, etc.), I'm a bit puzzled why the famous Hal Foster comics starring Tarzan have not been reprinted during this celebratory year. It's been over a decade or more since NBM Publishing put out this material, and I for one would be eager to snap up this stuff if it were on the shelves.
I don't own a single one of the NBM volumes, but I sure wish I did. Here's a gallery featuring the artwork of Foster and Burne Hogarth. I'd love to see Russ Manning's material made available in more permanent formats as well. There's a lot of great material out there with an audience I suspect eager to see and buy it.
