Golden Comics Digest #9 - March 1970

sgAh, Tarzan--another staple of the comics industry of olden days. There was a time he had more titles going than Batman or Spider-Man...how times change.

Anyway, this tale features the King of the Jungle plus other similar-themed characters, like Korak, Son of Tarzan(nice to see Dad help his son get work) and The Brothers of the Spear.

The main story is an adaptation of the ERB book Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar by Russ Manning, plus:
Tarzan in "The City Under the Sands"(by Dan Spiegle!), "The Guilt of Belazi"
Brothers of the Spear in "Battle in the Boma", and "Tembo! Tembo!"
Korak in "Perilous Passage", and "The Pit"

...over one-hundred and sixty pages of jungle adventure!

Oh I love these, have a Lone Digest or two as well. The Manning stuff is so pleasing to the eye, it makes me want to hunt it all down.

Cool, Rob!

I'll second Brian, that Manning's stuff is really a neat, clean, fun read (though I stick with Kubert as my fave Tarzan man.)

But I don't think I've ever seen a Spiegle Ape Man! Makes sense, though, as he was one of Gold Key's pillars.

Happy Halloween,

Too bad Gold Key didn't issue any Magnus Robot Fighter digests. Could you imagine, as a kid of the seventies, thumbing through 128 miniature pages of a comic like that?
