Kreegah! Painted Mexican Tarzan and Korak Covers

My pal, art collector Dave Karlen, got me interested in collecting South-of-the-Border Tarzan cover art. Dave estimates there are well over a thousand Mexican covers out there somewhere and we have been buying them up whenever we can. This one is by the artist, Betan. Being a "catch and release" collector these days, I'm sure I will end up flipping them. There is always more art than money!


  1. I have two questions:

    1) Is this on velvet?
    2) Did you buy it in Tijuana?

  2. 1)No velvet -- maize 2) I traded two El Santo masks for it on Craig's list.
