It's history in the making for both the Tarzan canon and adventure fiction itself as "Young Tarzan and the Mysterious She" premieres in Cirsova magazine, a collaboration by author and Edgar Rice Burroughs historian Michael Tierney to finish a story began by Burroughs himself (with the blessing of ERB, Inc.)! How did such a swingin' cool thing happen, and what were Michael's thoughts in approaching such an important project? More importantly, how many times does Shane play the Tarzan yell? Michael, Cirsova's P. Alexander and Critical Blast's R.J. Carter all join.
