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:

Burne Hogarth was accepted to the Art Institute of Chicago at age 12, and by age 15 he was already an assistant cartoonist at the Associate Editors' Syndicate. He took over the reins of Tarzan in 1937, and stayed with the strip for more than a decade. In 1950 he left the strip to co-found the Cartoonists and Illustrators School, today known as the world-famous School for Visual Arts. He is also famous for his books on anatomy and illustration, including Dynamic Anatomy and Dynamic Figure Drawing. Hogarth is in the Will Eisner Awards Hall of Fame.Review:

"Tarzan in the City of Gold is a treasure that has been buried in the jungle of the past waiting for a modern-day adventurer to discover and explore it again." - Pop Mythology
"Like the jungle man he’s drawing, Burne Hogarth is a beast....The way he illustrates flora around Tarzan’s kingdom, his understanding of different kinds of anatomy and proportion, and the breadth of emotional faces he illustrates for so many animals is awe-inspiring. Even if you’re not particularly a Tarzan enthusiast, you will probably be able to appreciate this book’s artistic merit." - Ain’t It Cool
