    This collection contains two new stories in the newspaper strip style, written by Roy Thomas for the Edgar Rice Burroughs website. In the first story, drawn by Thomas Grindberg, La of Ancient Opar is gunning for Tarzan's junk pretty yard when the cast winds up in a city inhabited by Trojans and Greeks, recently wakened from centuries of slumber, led by Helen of Troy. Helen looks just like Jane because of course she does.

In the first story, drawn by Thomas Grindberg, La of Ancient Opar is gunning for Tarzan's junk pretty yard when the cast winds up in a city inhabited by Trojans and Greeks, recently wakened from centuries of slumber, led by Helen of Troy. Helen looks just like Jane because of course she does. The story is a bit on the hokey side but Tarzan fights plenty of Greek soldiers and beast men of Opar. The art by Thomas Grindberg is breathtaking, though, harkening back to the glory days of Russ Manning and Joe Kubert. In the second story, drawn by Benito Gallego, Tarzan goes up against a scientist creating monster men in the jungle. Beware the Gorilleopard! The second story had more action than the first but there wasn't that much else to it. On top of that, Tarzan let the scientist go at the end despite her knifing a guy in the back so she could put his heart in the Gorilleopard she made! It's Roy Thomas, though, not Alan Moore. So the stories aren't great but the art is exceptional in both stories. I'm slapping a four on this bad boy.

    This review originally published in In his introduction, Thomas mentions that it was artist Tom Grindberg who approached him to write this strip. Their format seems unusual to me, and make me admire the writing work even more. Roy would prepare a general plot, Grindberg would draw the strips and then Roy would go back and add the dialog later. I liked the inclusion of Greek mythology in the first story.

I liked the inclusion of Greek mythology in the first story. The moment I saw this I raised an eyebrow in a bit of disbelief, but it worked and I didn't question it after that initial reaction. Tom Grindberg's art is fantastic! It is really reminiscent of Frank Frazetta's comic work and Hal Foster's Prince Valiant. The second story in the book is illustrated by Benito Gallego. Gallego is a talented artist, but the difference was marked because Grindberg's art was so strong. The second story was also a bit more fantastical - hard to believe since we had ancient Greece in the first one. I've never been a big Tarzan fan, but I really enjoyed the stories and the art in this collection. It's listed as a Volume 1 and I'm already excited to see Volume 2. Looking for a good book? Tarzan: The New Adventures by Roy Thomas with art by Tom Grindberg and Benito Gallego is an exciting collection of Sunday comic strip-style stories by some of the best creators in comics. I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher, through Edelweiss, in exchange for an honest review.

    I wasn't particularly sure about how I was gonna feel about this collection when I picked up. I was quite sure I would like the story written by the legendary Roy Thomas, but I didn't really know about the illustrators and as I wasn't really caught up in Burroughs' Tarzan mythos so I wasn't really whether this would hamper my understanding or enjoyment. I was also a bit sceptic about the format (Sunday newspaper landscape format) because I have almost no experience with it. Fortunately, despite I wasn't particularly sure about how I was gonna feel about this collection when I picked up.

I was also a bit sceptic about the format (Sunday newspaper landscape format) because I have almost no experience with it. Fortunately, despite my minimal recollection of Burroughs' Tarzan mythos and the supporting characters I was easily able to follow the story. There are two stories on offer in this collection, both of them building upon previous Tarzan story threads. Both had enough action sequences and twists and turns to keep me thoroughly entertained, but I liked the first one more due to its settings. The art was quite engrossing and the details of the jungle were depicted very exquisitely. I liked Grindberg's illustrations a bit more, most probably due to his coloring choices. The captions at the end of each page and the different styles used for lettering also complemented the fast paced nature of storytelling. Despite my unfamiliarity with the newspaper landscape format and my reservations with cliffhangers on almost every page, I really loved the plot and art. This gets 4 out of 5 stars from me.

    A worthy continuation of ERB's stories. In the first story La and her Oparians chase Tarzan who is tracking Jane and Paul D'Arnot to the hidden city of New Ilium where the Greek/Trojan War has been ongoing for 3,000 years. The second story is a sequel of sorts to both ERB's The Monster Men and H.G. Well's The Island of Dr. Moreau. A worthy continuation of ERB's stories.

    I love the newspaper strip style. The story is fast and non stop action. I love the art of Thomas Grindberg, it has a classic touch and it compliments this swashbuckling adventure.
