Synopsis: Tarzan finds his way by accident on a holy ground. The Queen La pronounce his death penalty, but the female mind is mystery.
Comment: Another good example of Mr. Corben’s style of using well known characters and turning usual situations upsidedown. Very Corbenish work with tong in a cheeck. Ideal lenth, not a one usless frame.
Alternatives, [VERS.2]: On pg 2 farest upper right corner the knife of Tarzan (and a trail of blood) goes out of panel. In this version everything out of panel (in a margin) is cut off.
