New Online Comic Strip: Jane Porter® Untamed

When we first meet Jane Porter in the novel Tarzan of the Apes, she is an intelligent and beautiful eighteen-year-old woman with little experience in the larger world, dedicated to helping her father in his studies of lost civilizations. But after she meets Tarzan, her life changes forever, as she is thrust into a life of continuous adventure and unremitting peril. Now, in the latest ERB online comic strip, Jane Porter Untamed, she transforms into a full-fledged hero, capable of standing on her own against the most daunting challenges and diving headlong into her own daring exploits!


This is a Jane like you have never seen her before—independent, able, and as resourceful as Tarzan and versatile as her ape friends. Her exciting new tales are presented by prolific writer, Martin Powell; new artist, David Matsuoka; and our frequent colorist and letterer, Maggie Lopez.
