It's not Tarzan - it's "Lord of the Jungle"...
DE is not publishing Tarzan - because they have to pay the Borroughs estate, if they use the Tarzan name - instead they're publishing "Lord of the Jungle"...
C'mon DE - if you want to cash in on the Tarzan mythos, pay up and call it Tarzan...
Well, it's working for John Carter as "Warlord of Mars."
Really, John Carter and Tarzan are both public domain. Both characters turn 100 years old next year. The Burroughs Estate is very good at keeping a tight reign on things with their trademarks on those names. Since they obviously haven't been able to stop DE's John Carter series, I kind of figured a Tarzan series would be following eventually.
Nelson has done a great job adapting Burroughs' John Carter, and I'm sure he'll do a fine job with Tarzan. My only complaint is that I prefer all-ages versions so I can share them with my kids, and DE's versions are not that. Still, I'm glad to see new Tarzan stuff finally being put out by somebody.
I have no problem with this, the character has entered the public domain, Burroughs passed long ago, and his estate has had a nice long run milking that cow.
More concerned about the quality of the stories myself.
Well, as with "Warlord of Mars," Dynamite is adapting the original Burroughs work, so we know the source is a great story. Of course, adaptations can be good or bad. I think Arvid Nelson has done a great job with the John Carter material, so I have high hopes for Tarzan.
Lord have mercy on Dynamite omics
I know a few fellows that would argue that the Lord has nothing to do with Dynamite comics.
