And another action packed adventure begins.
what??? 149. 8115-8184 (28 July 1965-16 Oct. 1965): John Celardo/John Celardo, [The Castle in the Jungle](70 days) skipping for some reason over 148. 8031-8114 (21 Apr. 1965-27 July 1965): John Celardo/John Celardo, [Tarzan and the Chinese Plot] (84 days) NOTE: Never reprinted! anyone know what this story was about that it made it “not acceptable to reprint today”?
found it!!!! http://www.erbzine.com/mag46/4630.html than change it to 4631,4631, 4633, 4634, 4635, 4636
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 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.
P. S. — the story is available at Bill Hillman’s website, ERBzine. Look for #s 4630-4636.
Yes political correctness strikes again at gocomics.
So now Tarzan’s a “Gay Swinger”? What next, disco clothing, and new hairdoo, some man-tan makeup, and YSL colonge? Maybe the leopard toting natives will turn this into a good tale? :)> LooseTheLeopardsAGowa!!
News Flash! Everybody (all the humans, at least) in this strip is strangely garbed. And they’re almost all armed, too. Sheesh, Some of ’em even have tanks, jets, and PT boats.
at the time of the strip, there was no AIDS yet, btw, http://www.todayifoundout.com/index.php/2010/02/how-gay-came-to-mean-homosexual/
There is a sequence in the story where a tribal chief commits suicide. Also, the depiction of the Chinese in the story is typical mid-20th century racial stereotyping. These are probably the reasons they decided to skip this story.
Read here and decide what to thing:http://www.erbzine.com/mag46/4637.html
Nota: this is not the only skipped story (or the missed strip)…
BTW: they do not care about these comments (they do nothing, I am now unsure they ever read them !)
