Tarzan No. 211

DAVE SIM:
Robert R sends me old reading copy comic books from time to time (which is really all I need: they're only for reference) that he thinks I'll be interested in. He has a strange track record of finding books that bang a gong, but not for the reason that he thought. In this case TARZAN 211 from DC which he thought I might like for the Hal Foster TARZAN material in the back. What REALLY got me... well, you can just read my letter to Robert to find out. Thanks again, Robert!

First person who can identify the day that Hogarth TARZAN Sunday page appeared…well, they'll win something. But first they'll have to prove what Sunday it was because I have NO idea. Although a part of me thinks, I can just drop down to 103 Queen Street and there it will be on the wall in the second room.

I deleted my earlier post because I was a bit off on the dates. It turns out the art came from more than one strip by Burne Hogarth. I found this on The Grand Comics Database and it fills in a lot more of the details complete with a panel by panel breakdown of who did what:
