A division among the enemies… very clever of Tarzan.
Tarzan is overjoyed, it has been long since he last killed a lion.
I never understood ERB’s hatred to lions, that in every novel Tarzan kills at least one (in the fifth novel he kills four), and befriends so few (two lions in the seventh novel and Jad-Bal-Ja).
Why did Tarzan let Mduma run away? Why not restrain and question him about the man who sent him to kill Tarzan?
Tarzan thinks: “How can I resolve this predicament? What’s next in this story arc? Will there be any lions to kill, pits to dig, hotties to date?”. He browses to https://www.erbzine.com/mag49/4913.html , and reads the whole story at once.
Next week: Tarzan appears, speaks with the apes, they calm down and leave, no one is harmed. End of story.
Be careful with your wishes, for they might come true…
What about the air supply?
Do you mean this URL? https://www.erbzine.com/mag48/4861.html

In the first URL, those were not rogue elephants. Tarzan and his companions killed them for the tusks (based very closely on a chapter in the second novel).
PETA will surely grant Tarzan a medal for this.
Dr. Franklin: “Now we can finally begin the mission we came for… eh… can someone remind me why did we come here?!” Everyone are silent, trying in vain to remember the reason. Tarzan: “Maybe we should browse back, five months before this strip.”
