Akim is the title character of an Italian adventure comic series created by writer Roberto Renzi and illustrator Augusto Pedrazza.[1][2]

A Tarzan-based comic book series, it was published by Tomasina from 1950 to 1967.[1][2] It was also successfully exported in Germany, Greece (where it was renamed Tarzan)[2] and in France, where Renzi and Pedrazza kept to produce new stories even after the series closed in Italy.[1] The series was later reprised in Italy in 1976 by publishers Altamira (currently Sergio Bonelli Editore) and Quadrifoglio until 1983, when it finally closed.[1]
