Fans will be treated to the first-ever collection of a historic turning point in Tarzan history: when Russ Manning was handpicked by the Burroughs estate to return the strip to its creator's original vision.

These were supplied him by the slim brown Nadara, the cave girl, who called him Thandar-the Brave One.
How Waldo lifted the cave people ahead a couple of aeons in civilization, and earned the name of Thandar, makes a story rich in human interest and exciting action.

Could the appearance of a costumed criminal named Labyrinto be related to the destruction of the powerful organized-crime racket? Dynamite Entertainment proudly announces that Black Bat 1, the first issue of an ongoing series reinventing the classic masked vigilante, will debut in May and combine the storytelling talents of writer Brian Buccellato DC's Flash and interior artist Ronan Cliquet Green Hornet, The Shadow Special. Bolstered by the character's appearance in Masks, one of 's best-selling independent comics, the pulp hero's solo series debut welcomes a host of superstar artists aboard for cover art duties, including J.
Black Bat brings back a classic pulp hero from the s, a seminal character that inspired several well-known comic icons. Now, Tony Quinn is a brash defense attorney for the mob, one who compromises his ethics for financial gain. However, when he refuses to cross the line and commit murder, he is tortured and blinded by his gangster employers.
But then, a fortuitous meeting with a covert agency gives him a chance to make amends, and Tony dons the dark mantle of the Black Bat in his redemptive quest to right the wrongs of his past. Brian Buccellato, whose work on the DC speedster title Flash has gained rave reviews from fans and critics alike, was announced at New York Comic-con as the writer steering the Black Bat revival. The red-hot writer eagerly shared his excitement about Black Bat's atmospheric setting, and the creative opportunities he'll explore there.
Black Bat covers some of that ground.
At the same time, it's still a superhero book and isn't a departure from my work on Flash. Tonally, I'd like to think it merges the gap between those two worlds. It's nice to have him back in that capacity writing Black Bat! In the New 52, his writing with Francis Manapul on The Flash is one of my personal favorite series, and the stories only get better.
Not only is he a phenomenal writer, as well as an artist and colorist, he pushes himself with new projects outside of comics. I can't express enough how proud we are to have Brian writing the Black Bat. In May, fans will know what we already know, it's going to be one of the best new super hero books of the summer! With the current news that Roman Cliquet is joining the creative staff of Black Bat, the enthusiasm is clearly infectious.
Buccellato responded to the artist's selection, saying, "I couldn't be more excited to have Ronan Cliquet on board. He is bringing a gritty, almost noir inked style that is perfect for the tone of this street-level superhero book. This book has been a year in the making, so it's an incredible thrill to see it come to life as the covers and art start to come in.

Critically acclaimed Fringe explores new cases with endless impossibilities. Set in Boston, the FBI's Fringe Division started when Special Agent Olivia Dunham enlisted institutionalized "fringe" scientist Walter Bishop and his globe-trotting, jack-of-all-trades son, Peter, to help in investigations that defy all human logic - and the laws of nature.
The first in an all-new series of tie-in novels!
Author Christa Faust Choke Hold, Supernatural is working hand-in-hand with the television writers to create new adventures uncovering the secrets of the series.

Lord of the Jungle Through the Valley of the Shadow! He's pretty much an unknown, and yet In two thousand drawings published between and , illustrator Mahlon Blaine revealed his subjects — from Demons to Deities, Maylasians to Martians, Biology to Biography, Lasciviousness to Literature.
He painted, but he is best known for pen and ink — an uncanny artistic master of Erotica and Exotica who lived for decades in cheap hotels and borrowed rooms, acutely observing humanity while wielding pens and brushes dipped in wit and wry. With everything from children's classic tales to cookbooks to treatises on witchcraft to mainstream fiction to literature including Steinbeck, Hemingway and Voltaire , the publishing industry relied on Mahlon Blaine often.
His best book productions feature twenty to a hundred illustrations each, and he garnered several awards for design and illustration. His personal life is obfuscated by a combination of time's grime and his own desire for privacy and outlandish cover stories. The author Roland Trenary has been collecting and researching the artist for almost 40 years, amassing the most comprehensive assemblage of information and artwork that one might imagine, given the elusive nature of the subject.
The book includes a complete bibliography of published work and a biography that emphasizes the professional side of Blaine. Among the over illustrations herein are rare photographs and self-portraits of Blaine and, especially interesting, dozens of published and unpublished drawings and paintings that reveal a side of the artist previously unknown and unseen.
This goes beyond either The Art of Mahlon Blaine or The Outlandish Art of Mahlon Blaine in presenting both rare published and unpublished examples of Blaine's unique artistic vision, with examples not found in those two previous books on Blaine. And remember, unbelievably, he only had one eye!
Bibliographically, here are books and 80 magazines described and pictured that held Blaine's public outpouring, as well as ephemera and posthumous publication listings - information not available anywhere else.

Excellent characterization of the narrator and, all-in-all, quite enjoyable.
