Tarzan Sunday Comic Strips by Goodwin & Kane

Tarzan has been a mainstay of the Sunday comics page since the 1930s and the work of Hal Foster. Notable artists over the following decades include Burne Hogarth and Russ Manning. I came along in the late 70s, enjoying the work of Gil Kane and later Mike Grell and Gray Morrow, artists I was familiar with from comic books.

Below are two strips from the 1979/80 story “Refuge from the Rich and Famous” written by Archie Goodwin and drawn by Gil Kane, which was reprinted in black & white by Blackthorne Publishing in their Comic-Strip Preserves: Tarzan, Book 4. Fresh colour by me.
