I have to admit, I'm really excited about the Russ Manning Tarzan Archives series Dark Horse is releasing. (I already know about Brothers of the Spear, too, and am likewise excited.) I do have some questions:
1) How many Tarzan stories did Manning actually do for Dell/Western/Gold Key? Any idea how many Archive editions that works out to?
2) I know Manning went on to do three years of the newspaper strip. Was this Sundays only, or seven days a week? How much of this was NOT reprinted by DC?
3) I know that a lot of DC's Russ Manning work is actually reprints of Manning's three years on the newspaper strip. Did Manning do any original work for DC?
4) Finally, I think I recall that Manning did 2-3 graphic novels for European audiences. I don't think these have ever been reprinted for distribution in the U.S.--does anyone know for sure? Will Dark Horse get to these as well?
I've been checking Google, but I haven't had much luck. Thanks!!
