- Full Description
Hal Foster's legacy as one of the most celebrated comic creators of all time is cemented in this marvelous deluxe volume! Collecting Foster's last two years of Tarzan Sunday strips, expertly restored and reproduced at giant size, the final volume in the series.
This features the concluding 17 weeks of Sundays for "Tarzan and the Lost Vikings," concluded from Volume 2. Then it features "Tarzan and the Killers" with 19 more Sundays. And the final treat is "Tarzan and the City of Gold," 51 strips...and entire year's story, which finds Tarzan battling in the skies, fighting against fliers who have plans to take over the ancient lost city.
In his introduction, Yeates talks about his own love affair with Tarzan and Foster, and includes several of his fine Tarzan drawings. Yeates is now the illustrator of the Prince Valiant Sunday Page--following in Foster's footsteps!
This compiles dozens of strips in gorgeous color on archive quality paper, replicating their appearance when they were brand new, over seventy-five years ago! This astonishing hardcover is a format that collectors should not miss!
Burne Hogarth took over when Foster left to start his masterpiece, Prince Valiant, which began in 1937! Brian Kane's substantial introduction is "From Forests Primeval to Warriors Medieval" and it examines not only the fine stories here, but how miserly King Features lost Foster when he got disgusted with his very low pay and finally left to start his own, far more lucrative, creation, Prince Valiant.
