Tarzan of the Apes was a novel by Edger Rice Burroughs, the first of 24 Tarzan books written by Burroughs. The prose is dated, but the story is timeless. Many people have adapted this story to other media, including Hal Foster and Burne Hogarth. The best comics adaptations have been by Joe Kubert and Russ Manning. In films, Johnny Weismuller is fondly remembered, but the best Tarzan films are Tarzan's Greatest Adventure and Greystoke.
