Kreeee-Gah! Sequential Pulp and Darkhorse Comics Present Jungle Tales of Tarzan!

It's hard to keep a secret for months on end, but a couple of dozen of us involved with this spectacular project have done just that. But the wraps came off in an announcement yesterday afternoon:

JUNGLE TALES OF TARZAN to be published by Sequential Pulp/Dark Horse Comics. Based on the classic anthology by Edgar Rice Burroughs.

Written by Martin Powell and illustrated by Daren Bader, Pablo Marcos, Terry Beatty, Will Meugniot, Nik Poliwko, Antonio Romero Olmedo, Mark Wheatley, Diana Leto, Steven E. Gordon, Lowell Isaac, Tom Floyd and Jamie Chase.


Tarzan ™ ERB, Inc.

Can't tell you all how pleased I am to be involved with such a great book and so many talented creators. Each of the 12 Jungle Tales is to be illustrated by a different artist, and below is a sneak peek at the first page of the classic Edgar Rice Burroughs story I'm adapting with that famous scribe, Martin Powell, who is also ramrodding the project for Sequential Pulp's publisher Michael Hudson.

This is the first time I've drawn Tarzan for publication in 28 years. The last time was in the mid-70s for ERB's European comics line. Below is a cover penciled by me with inks by my  friend, the late, great, Dave Stevens. 

I solemnly vow that there will be no fedora wearing, machine gun toting apes in this new, dead faithful adaptation!
