Burne Hogarth is one of the most famous artists in the history of comic strips - at the peak with Alex Raymond (Flash Gordon) and Hal Foster (Prince Valiant). In 1936 he followed Foster on the massively popular Tarzan comic strip, and set a new standard for dynamics and excitement. This is the first of four exclusive volumes that will collect Hogarth's entire run, beginning with Tarzan and the Golden City. Restored and reproduced in an oversized format, these editions will 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.  Details of illustrations:    Full-color restorations of the newspaper strips, reproduced in the oversized full-page format made popular by current collections of Prince Valiant and Popeye the Sailor. Details of extras:   Historical articles from Scott Tracy Griffin, author of Tarzan: The Centennial Celebration… (more)

This oversized collection begins Burne Hogarth's run on the Tarzan color Sundays, when Hogarth took over for Hal Foster in 1937. Hogarth's no Foster, but he does a good job and the storylines are mostly interesting, although his battle scenes tend to feel a little similar. Lots of fun. ( )
