    The battle with Terkoz as drawn by Hogarth is fantastic. DC Comics reprinted it in the 1970’s in their giant size Tarzan comic.

    More like a symbol of ‘a man’s’ superiority.

    That’s one small step of victory for man, one giant leap of superiority for mankind.

    The way Burroughs writes the fights with the various apes and Tarzan in the books is wonderful. The struggle to get the apes into a full nelson and the pressure on their necks when Tarzan strains is done very well. Tarzan kills a lion in a similar fashion in one of the early books, when it is trying to get into the window of his cabin.

    If this follows the original story, Miss Jane Porter should be making an appearance very soon……..
    Jambo and a Good Friday to tribe mates one and all! :)=

    I totally agree. Hogarth will commit more view to the scene as showing the full bodies in the fight. Here the story line is just a representation of a memory but it should have had more movement.

    However the ape’s strength is so much greater than a human’s of comparable size it would be incredible indeed if a weak human could best one in hand-to-hand combat.

    I have that one in my attic. Thanks for the memory jog. I’ll dig it out and reread it.

    at that time the writers put Tarzan as single and available for Nurse Naomi until she decided for the General, so I don’t know if they would put Jane
