Russ Manning is an artist who spent much of his career illustrating adaptations of Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan novels, along with scriptwriter Gaylord Du Bois, the duo reimagined 10 of the author's first 11 Tarzan novels for Gold Key's 60s Tarzan series, which were later published as graphic novels by Dark Horse in the 1990s. Manning was beloved by fans and peers alike for his clear, clean and deceptively simple style, and a knack for concise storytelling that flows seamlessly from panel to panel. Manning was also responsible for creating cult favorite Magnus, Robot Fighter, and later in his career, a series of Star Wars newspaper strips based on the original trilogy of films.

ComicConnect is incredibly proud to present a great selection of original Manning pages from his years of intensive and passionate work on Tarzan's tales of jungle adventure. These particular pages come from ERN, Inc.'s Tarzan comics, published in the 1970s. The pages from "Tarzan and the Beast Master" are a glowing testament to Manning's exceptional abilities -- his ease with narrative flow, and his assured illustrative skills are on full display.

It is safe to say that such an impressive collection of Russ Manning pages, from such rare source material is unlikely to surface again for a long time, so fans of Tarzan, Burroughs, and Manning should take notice, and make sure not to let these rarities pass you by.

On Pg. 38 of "Tarzan and the Beast Master," our loincloth-clad hero swings through the trees on a mission to save his son, Korak, from the leopard skin wearing forces that serve the titular villain. Tarzan is followed by his lion and ape companions as they force their way into the structure where his family is trapped. Another fine example of Russ Manning's superior skills of graphic storytelling.
