      But a Tarzan comic set in the future? That sounded promising. On the plus side, I felt the book's art fit a Tarzan book, and there were enough references to the source material that I felt the author had actually read the books and not watched a movie. Tarzan is strong, swift, and sure, a hero for any era/5(5). I found Tarzan, Conqueror of Mars faithful in every way to the spirit and tradition of Edgar Rice Burroughs, and a thoroughly entertaining adventure. I have only one complaint. After pages, it ended/5(8).

Tarzan finds himself not only enslaved, but imprisoned by an advanced technology that may prevent his return to his former life forever.

It is much more satisfactory than the Tarzan and Jane relationship, which really fizzles after the first couple of Tarzan.Tarzan is the son of a British Lord and Lady who were marooned on the West coast of Africa by mutineers.

When Tarzan was a year old, his mother died of natural causes, and his father was killed by Kerchak, leader of the ape tribe into which Tarzan was adopted.
