Burne Hogarth Sunday Pages, May 1940 to Oct. 1943. Introduction by Thomas Yeates. The second of five volumes, authorized by the Edgar Rice Burroughs estate, collecting the entire run of the legendary Tarzan comic strip by one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. Three complete episodes, among Hogarth's finest: "The Peoples of the Sea and the Fire," "Against Dagga Ramba," and "Tarzan and the Barbarians."
The World-Famous Comic Strip, restored and collected for the first time In its entirety! One Sunday page is presented on each page here, in glorious original color. Hogarth's anatomy, foliage, detail, and story-telling raised the level of the Tarzan mythology to a new level. Here Tarzan is a demi-god, fearless, powerful, fast-thinking, a hero armed only with a knife and bow and arrow.
Thomas Yeates' fine introduction includes several pages reproduced from the original artwork, plus two Sunday page originals that were hand-colored by commission from Danton Burroughs! Superlative work thoughout, these should not be missed.
I know it's sacrilege to some, but I have always preferred Hogarth's Ape-Man to Foster's. Hogarth came into his own as he moved away from Foster's more traditional style and drew work that was every bit as exciting as what Alex Raymond was doing on Flash Gordon or as Foster was doing on his own beloved Prince Valiant. This was the third of the Big Three adventure strips of the 1940s.
