- Full Description
Burne Hogarth is one of the most famous artists in the history of comic strips--right up there with Alex Raymond (Flash Gordon) and Hal Foster (Prince Valiant). In 1936 he took over from Foster on the massively popular Tarzan comic strip, and set a new standard for excitement. This is the first of five exclusive, oversized volumes that will collect Hogarth's entire run, beginning with Tarzan and the Golden City, May 1937, and continuing through six more adventures, to April, 1940.
Additional stories here show Hogarth as he honed his skills, quickly making Tarzan a demi-god of the jungle, his adversaries evil incarnate, the women beautiful and beguiling. In the rare episode, "Tarzan and the Amazons," Tarzan's life is saved by a race of Sheena-like women, as capable and strong as the Ape-Man himself.
Other episodes include "Tarzan and the Boers," "Tarzan and the Chinese," "Tarzan and the Pygmies," and "Tarzan and the Boers, Part II."
Restored and reproduced in an oversized format, these editions finally do justice to one of the most lauded illustrators of all time, whose work has been out of print for more than a decade.
