In January 1929, Hal Foster, creator of Prince Valiant, had his first published newspaper strip art with the debut of Tarzan, a comic that would produce more that ten thousand strips before switching to reprints in 1972. It was Foster who illustrated all 60 episodes of the strip's adaptation of Edgar Rice Burrough's seminal novel, Tarzan of the Apes.
