Synopsis

Tarzan and the Lion Man is a novel written by Edgar Rice Burroughs, the seventeenth in his series of books about the title character Tarzan. The novel was originally serialized in the magazine Liberty from November 1933 through January 1935. It is the closest thing to a pure comic novel in the Tarzan series, with Burroughs wildly satirizing Hollywood's treatment of the Tarzan character and even spoofing his own work.
