- Full Description
Third of five volumes, authorized by the ERB estate, collecting the entire run by one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. 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. Plus "Hogarth on Burroughs," a 1982 interview.
Includes five complete episodes: Tarzan Against Kandullah and the Nazis, Tarzan Against Don Macabre, Tarzan Against the Nazis, The Gorm-Bongara Monster, and On the Island of Ka-Gor.
Noted ERB authority interviews Hogarth in 1982 and that, along with special illustrations, is included in its entirety. Hogarth talks about his relationship with Edgar Rice Burroughs. Hogarth drew the Tarzan Sunday newspaper comic strip page for 12 years (1937--45; 1947--50).
This also includes a short sequence where Hogarth took a break, and the excellent artist Ruben Moreira worked on the strip until Hogarth returned. Also during the war, regular writer Don Garden left to serve in the military. Thus Burne Hogarth took over the writing, and Tarzan came to wholly represent his explosive artistic vision.
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. Action was non-stop, and every panel was filled with explosive, dynamic artwork, beautiful women, strong and powerful warriors, strange creatures, and every challenge imaginable for Tarzan to overcome.
Hogarth went on become one of the most famous art teachers of his day. His books such as Dynamic Anatomy and others reveal how he created the Tarzan pages, and they remain in print to this day. He returned to Tarzan to create two stand-alone graphic novels based on ERB’s original stories, both currently available from us.
