Dark Horse already did a Tarzan vs. Predator At the Earth's Core miniseries, so it won't be the first time (although continuity-wise, I guess it will), Dark Horse has taken Tarzan to the Earth's Core.

That would be Tarzan: The Savage Heart, a 1999 minseries written by Allan Gross and drawn by Mike Grell (there was also a one-issue Dark Horse Presents tie-in to this series by Tom Yeats). It takes place in-between the Burroughs novels' continuity at a period where Tarzan mistakenly believes that Jane has been killed.

I am so looking forward to this new series!! I have not read the Dark Horse series but I enjoyed both the DC and Marvel runs.
Also thinking that a "Lord of the Jungle" forum would be nice here.
Really? You think Dynamite is "crapping all over" ERB's creations? I guess that would include WARLORD OF MARS, since it's not authorized by ERB, Inc. either. And it's apparent that people don't understand the distinction between copyright and trademark. Sure, Dynamite can't use the word "Tarzan" in a comic book title, because ERB, Inc. has trademarked that name. Just as DC Comics can't use the word "Captain Marvel" in a comic book title, because Marvel Comics has trademarked that name. DC can publish a comic book titled Shazam!, however, and have a character named Captain Marvel be the star of the series. Just as Dynamite can publish a comic book titled Lord of the Jungle, and have a character (whose original copyright is now in the public domain) named Tarzan be the star of that series. No different than they've done in not calling their Mars adaptation John Carter of Mars. "John Carter of Mars" is trademarked by ERB, Inc. (and the book of the same title is still under copyright by ERB, Inc.) but the title Warlord of Mars is in the public domain, as is the copyright to the novel of the same name.

One need look no further than Marvel's current adaptation of A Princess of Mars. In my opinion, that adaptation is "crapping all over" ERB's creation, and Marvel is doing so with the blessing of ERB, Inc.
