    So we’re not doing the Chinese plot storyline after all those days of talking about it?

    Tarzan must have some ballet moves in him. He can balance on that branch on one toe.

    That’s his pole dancer style swinging on the vine.

    I read some of the comic. “She’s oriental. I’ll have to carry her up the slope.”
    Not too subtle.

    “Strangely garbed.”

    what’s that smell? Is that the smell of censorship? In todays “politically incorrect” society are we not allowed to see what happened in the past and make our own judgement on the content? Guess not.

    I also just read it. As a whole it is a good story, but individual daily strips taken out of context would probably offend the casual reader not aware of Tarzan’s set-up plan.

    It showed a Red Chinese plot to take over Africa. Not politically correct now that the Red Chinese are our “friends”.

    I think the decapitation of his friend would trump any concerns about offending our Chinese trading partners!

    P. S. — the story is available at Bill Hillman’s website, ERBzine. Look for #s 4630-4636.

    Thanks for that. I think maybe GoComics was a little worried about things like “Yellow-skinned cowards”, “slant-eyes”, Comrade Tu’s thick glasses and buck teeth, etc., etc.
    I also hope Jane didn’t see Tarzan fooling around with the beautiful Lin Chu – he might have a hard time explaining he was only fooling with her to help save that part of Africa from the “red-yellow” hordes.

    Yes political correctness strikes again at gocomics.
