Tarzan Celebrates 100 Years!!!

Today we celebrate 100 years of Tarzan, the man-child raised by apes in the jungles of Africa, born from the imaginary mind of author Edgar Rice Burroughs who created the popular fictional character that first leaped onto printed pages in 1912.

When I received a review copy of Tarzan: The Centennial Celebration in the mail, I was really stunned at how beautiful this hardbound book was.  Author and Tarzan fanatic Scott Tracy Griffin went all out – this book is a comprehensive collection of all things Tarzan and Edgar Rice Burroughs.  First of all, this book has an awesome collection of illustrations, book art, comic book art, cover art, and archive photos from the various movies and television shows.  It also covers various aspects of the Tarzan universe, such as, merchandising, toys, fan clubs, fan conventions, and it even includes a dictionary on what is known as “ape” language.  I can speak ape now!
