Tarzan in Paris
First appeared in ERBapa No.
81 ~ Spring 2004
I found this short Tarzan story titled "Tarzan in Paris"
in a 1950 French comic book. Collection Tarzan. The publication
was reprinting the 1929 Hal Foster adaptation of Tarzan of the Apes.
This one-day story was written and illustrated by René Brantonne
and probably his assistant Pierre Leguen. René Brantonne is a French
illustrator who got his start in the 1920s in France for Paramount (movie
posters) and Fox. In the beginning of 1940s he started drawing comics and
book covers (the most famous are Fleuve Noir Anticipation, one of
the first SF collections in France in the 1950s).
It takes place just after D'Arnot has brought Tarzan to
France form his African jungle. It fits between the lower two panels on
page 72 of The Illustrated Tarzan Book No. 1, subtitled Tarzan
of the Apes Picturized (Grosset & Dunalp, 1929; reprinted by House
of Greystoke, 1967).
~ Bob Hyde ~ 2004
with added information from Michel Dubois
Tarzan and D'Arnot return to the police bureau so that Tarzan
can have his finger-prints taken by the police specialist.
~ Translated from French by Walter Albert
After this brief Paris episode, the story returns to the lower-right
panel on page 71 in the Hal Foster adaptation.
