TARZAN: THE GRAND ADVENTURE - UK VOLUME 1
(More Cover Illustrations To Be Added)
Publisher Donald F. Peters, Ltd. published the first English Tarzan comic in 1950. Throughout the '50s this and following series of UK comics consisted of  black and white reprints of American newspaper comic strips.

The series started off with the title: TARZAN MONTHLY, which ran for 19 issues. This was a noteworthy series as they reprinted a full American Sunday strip on each page.

The comic was then taken over by Westworld Publications, Ltd. of London, who changed the title  to TARZAN: THE GRAND ADVENTURE COMIC for Volumes 1 and 2.

With Volume 3 the title changed again -- to TARZAN ADVENTURES --  title which it bore until its demise with at the end of Volume 9.

In the following series of Webpages the ERBzine C.H.A.S.E.R. Comics Encyclopedia will attempt to identify the American comic reprints contained in each of these UK comics. Where possible we will also add cover art.


We presented the following information in: ERBzine 0092

In the 1950s, England featured a Westworld Tarzan Club. The main items offered were a 1 3/8 tall plastic badge which featured a silhouette of Tarzan and a  membership card. The front of the folded membership card featured an artist's rendition of the club badge. Each card was stamped with a membership number and also gave printed spaces for the member to fill in their name, address, birthday, and club rank. The back of the card featured a secret message decoder for the club members to decode secret messages.
