Great! I looove Jungle Tales of Tarzan. I know it's apparently not well loved among Burroughs fans, but I found those tales just sweet and spiritual. I often read that Burroughs' style was ill-suited for short stories, but I'm really not sure about that. The short format forced him to focus on the core of the story, and not to multiply twists too much.

Yay! I am super excited for this! I found a list of the artists and I looked up every single one on Google. I prefer some of the styles over others, but I can't wait to see how this goes!
