Tarzan Swings Again?


Happy New Year! Now that we got that out of the way here's a piece of news that somehow flew under my radar. A new series of Tarzan books have been commissioned by the Edgar Rice Burroughs estate, starting with Tarzan The Greystoke Legacy written by British author Andy Briggs, whose work includes a young adult series called Hero.Com and the graphic novel Kong: King of Skull Island. The book is set to be published sometime this year leading to the character's 100th anniversary in 2012. I'm always a little leery of these attempts since they never equal the originals but I guess we'll see how it goes. You can read the press release announcing the book at http://www.andybriggs.co.uk/andybriggs.co.uk/Home/Entries/2010/4/8_TARZAN_SWINGS_AGAIN!.html
