Tarzan Novel Translations
These are covers of translated Burroughs Tarzan books published by Mizrachi in 1972-1984 and 1997. In all this publisher published the first 12 Tarzan books -- minus No. 11 - Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle, which was not published for some reason. However, this title exists in an older Hebrew translation, as were all the first 10 books and No. 15. Tarzan at the Earth's Core (No. 13) was also translated by well-known writer, Shraga Gafni (who also translated No. 12 in 1997) for Mizrhachi but unfortunately it was never published. The covers are adapted from the US Ballantine editions by Robert Abbett.
These are covers of the Tarzan comics series published by Mizrhachi. They came out around the time of their translated Tarzan novels in 1972-1979. There were 48 issues, mostly based on the European series and reprinted US strips. The first five -- and the best -- were by Russ Manning. Nos 6-17 were by Lubbers and Nos. 18-48 were by Celardo.

ORIGINAL TARZAN COMICS IN HEBREW
These are sample pages from an original Hebrew Tarzan comic. It is an adaptation the first Tarzan novel, Tarzan of the Apes and it appeared in the children's magazine AARETZ SHELANU 19 1959 in 13 parts. The writer and artist was Dani Planet.
These are pages from the second Plant Tarzan story "TARZAN VEHABOHANA HAGADOL" (TARZAN AND THE BIG BOHANA) . It was published at HARETZ SHELANU in 1960 in 13 parts alongside another non-comics Tarzan story TARZAN VETAALUMAT AATOM (TARZAN AND THE ATOM MYSTERY) by "yariv Amazya."
In contrast to the earlier story which was an adaptation of the first Tarzan book, this was an original story in which Tarzan fights with Arab slavers. Dani Planet had drawn many comics stories at TAARETZ SHELANU in the '50s and the '60s and is best known for a juvenile sf novel about time travel to the past.
