This issue of Who's Who Behind the Comics concludes the listing of contributors to the Edgar Rice Burroughs inspired comic books published by Dark Horse Comics, Inc.

The side note in Part 2 about someone at Dark Horse replacing Bernie Wrightson's Tarzan with another artist's version on the cover of issue eleven (Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan: Le Monstre, Part One), has been confirmed. The final pages in Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan: Le Monstre, the graphic novel features a section titled "Sketches and Cover Gallery." On the first page is a note stating: "The following sketches are from the files of Stan Manoukian and Vince Roucher" and page two contains a sketch of Tarzan as he appears on Bernie's cover illustration for issue eleven.
