Tarzan reprints from various sources. Some original British material.
Publisher Donald F. Peters, Ltd. published the first English Tarzan comic in 1950. Throughout the ’50s this and following series of UK comics consisted of black and white reprints of American newspaper comic strips.
The series started off with the title: TARZAN MONTHLY, which ran for 19 issues. This was a noteworthy series as they reprinted a full American Sunday strip on each page.
The comic was then taken over by Westworld Publications, Ltd. of London, who changed the title to TARZAN: THE GRAND ADVENTURE COMIC for Volumes 1 and 2.
With Volume 3 the title changed again — to TARZAN ADVENTURES — title which it bore until its demise with at the end of Volume 9.
