    Russ Manning Tarzan and the Pool of Time Graphic Novel Cover Original Art (ERB Inc., c. 1974). Comic legend Russ Manning took Tarzan to Caspak in a series of two excellent graphic albums released during the seventies. These were Tarzan in the Land that Time Forgot, and Tarzan and the Pool of Time respectively. The former was released in Great Britain, the latter in Sweden. In the E. R. Burroughs canon, Caspak is a huge island or small continent located in the South seas somewhere between South America and Australia. Unlike Pal-ul-don, life forms on Caspak have literally remained unchanged from their myriad eras. What makes Caspak unique, is that is actually a huge cross-section of earth's prehistoric history, a living record of life on earth from the Cambrian up to the early Holocene (which marked the beginnings of human civilization). Dark Horse released both stories in single package in the US during the nineties. This fantastic cover made up of half photostat and half original art rivals the best works of Frank Frazetta and Burne Hogarth. The lower half of the design is a photostat, but the Tarzan figure is original art as are many of the winged figures and skulls at the top of the design. This mind-blowing piece has an overall size of 21" x 23.5", and aside from some rippling to the photostat at the bottom, this piece is in Good condition.
