Description du produit
Revue de presse
"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
"It didn’t take long for me to get on board with this book and the fantastic ride it delivered. A great introduction, nice reproductions in a manageable size, and most importantly the comic strip itself is awesome fun! A definite for any Burne Hogarth/Tarzan fan, or lover of comic strips. I’ll be looking forward to more." - Pop Cults
"Whether you’re a collector, a comic historian, or a fan interested in learning more about one of the great forefathers of the medium, you’ll want to check out this brand new, luxurious hardcover collection." - Fanboy Comics
"For fans of Tarzan, In the City of Gold is a must have and anyone who has an appreciation for the excellent artwork which used to grace the pages of the Sunday funnies would be best served grabbing a copy as well. The same goes for anyone interested in the long and storied history of the comic strip and the medium of comics as well. Titan Books has produced a great collection and I eagerly anticipate the upcoming volumes in the series." - The Gaming Gang
"A stunning peak into the beginnings of a global phenomenon, into the early years of the comics industry that you love so much, into the birth of a venerable, Eisner Hall of Fame comic artist.
Keep it on your coffee table. It’s sure to start a conversation." - ComicsVerse
"The stories are fun and fast moving, the captions (no word balloons, thank you!) and pictures work well together. Hogarth amazes with each turn of the page. Burne Hogarth’s Tarzan in the City of Gold Vol. 1 is an ideal reprint volume—important material, well produced, and priced reasonably. These are the hallmarks of Titan Books reprint line. Buy this book." - Culture Mass
"This is yet another stunning archival comics collection from Titan Books, this time reprinting Burne Hogarth’s incredible Sunday color comics from back in the 1930s. It’s a gorgeous book, totally worth it just for the Hogarth artwork." - Comic Book Review
"Beautifully illustrated by Burne Hogarth, these newspaper strips have been wonderfully restored in full color, and it looks simply amazing in this large hardcover book from Titan." - Awkward Geeks
"Well worth the cover price to any Tarzan or Hogarth fan." - Man of LA
"A wonderful collection." - Comics Bulletin
"Art is exceptional." - Adventures in Poor Taste
“Another top quality book from Titan and the reproduction is lovely... I could write "wonderful fun" a dozen times but I won't. I'll just write: "Wonderful fun a dozen times"!” - Comic Bits Online
“Beautifully rendered and reassuringly formulaic these masterful interpretations of the utterly authentic Ape-Man are a welcome addition to any comics’ connoisseurs’ cupboard and you would be crazy not to take advantage of this beautiful collection.” - Comics Review
"Magnificent." - Retroist
"A treat for aficionados of classic comic strip illustration and a gorgeous introduction to the form courtesy of one of its most accomplished masters." - Comics Alliance

This book is much more than what I expected. As in the Flash Gordon reprints by TB, the cream colored paper stock and the excellent restoration (without recoloring) makes this a real treat for Tarzan fans. The size is just right, not too big and certainly not small at all; which makes it very easy to handle and flip through the pages. The binding looks very sound and I am positive it will stand my use and abuse. Going over the stories, one can appreciate how Hogarth's art evolved through the years; a trend we'll see also in further volumes of this series. I already pre-ordered volume 2 and simply cannot wait to see all four volumes of Hogarth's Tarzan on my bookshelf. I absolutely recommend this book to anyone wanting to add Hogarth's Tarzan to his collection. Buy with confidence, you won't be disappointed.
Thanks Titan and keep it coming!
Would have been better with a recoloring. Though I love to be able to sit and have so much of Hogarth at hand to enjoy with a cup of tea.
Though I must say that Amazon was quite disapointing this time! The package that the quite heavy book was protected by was in a bad shape on arrival. The sealing on the front side was almost torn open, only the information and address labels holding it closed.
Worse - the book had got a serious hit on the left upper corner, crushing it, and a minor hit on the lover left. But that is NO surprise, since the book had NO corner protection! Only 2 pieces of plastic bags, wich normaly are filled with air in the pockets - but several air pockets were deflated!
If I return this item for a new one it will cost me half the book. So maybe I will not.
My only previous experience with Titan was the Flash Gordon series by artist Alex Raymond. Great art, great presentation, terrible writing. This book reminds me a lot of what I saw with Flash Gordon. In both cases the books showcased the artist but the artists were not the writer. The writer here is Don Garden. In both cases the comics are told in the third person which I am not much of a fan of. I don't mind the occasional box of text but this is all third person. I don't think Don Garden is going to win any awards for inventiveness but he's a darn site better than Don Moore who wrote Flash Gordon. Hogarth doesn't have quite the skills of Alex Raymond but the art is quite good and Hogarth was very skilled at drawing animals and jungle backgrounds so he is definitely in his element here. Russ Manning was a more precise and consistent artist than Hogarth but precision isn't always right for Tarzan. I might argue that Manning's Tarzan looked TOO good particularly with his perfectly quaffed hair. On the other hand Manning was better than Hogarth at drawing Tarzan's lithe physique and movement through the jungle.
I assumed that since this was Tarzan in the City of Gold that it was based on the book but the book is called Tarzan AND the City of Gold and it is a completely separate story. In fact we only get half the story since Hogarth took over artist duties half way through and Titan didn't include the Foster portion. Not only is the story different from the book but Tarzan has a trained Lion friend named Lethor while in the novels the lion is named Jad-bal-ja. My one big issue with the Russ Manning stories was his usage of the more fantasy elements of Tarzan including a story where he appears to travel back in time. He also used Tarzan's son Korak a great deal which I consider a shame because I am no fan of the Korak character. Don Garden sticks to what I like most about Tarzan setting him in a realistic environment and having him communicate and enlist aid from the creatures of Africa. The downside here is the stories are just paper thin. So on the one hand we have Manning who was a better story teller but used elements I don't like and on the other we have Garden who writes very shallow stories but sticks to the elements I enjoy. For me it's a tossup as to who I prefer.
I assume the images here are smaller than the original size but the book is still pretty big at nearly 13 inches in height. A little too large to curl up with in bed which is a shame. The product description says Sunday's and dailies but these all look like Sunday comics to me. All the comics are in color with 10 to 12 frames per day. In this case I don't mind that the images are probably shrunken since the last thing I need is a book the dimensions of a newspaper page. I already went through that once with DC's Wednesday Comics. I've considered Fantagraphics and IDW to be the big guns when it comes presenting classic comics but Titan is doing some good work too. My disappointment with Flash Gordon had nothing to do with the presentation by Titan Books. These aren't the greatest Tarzan stories ever told but they have a neat classic feel to them and I don't regret getting the book.
This book covers the first five stories from May 1937 to April 1940. They are: Tarzan in the City of Gold, Tarzan and the Boers Parts one and two, Tarzan and the Chinese, Tarzan and the Pygmies and Tarzan and the Amazons. Plus the story of Mr. Hogarth and Edgar Rice Burroughs, and the story of Hal Forest's Tarzan in the City of Gold.
Relive the days o f long gone when Tarzan graced the pages of the papers and we were treated to the visual concept of Tarzan's adventures across Africa.
Any Tarzan or Burne Hogarth fan should add this edition to their collection as it is a rich collection of newspaper comic strips, and I gave it five stars as it is great to be able to read the strips again. Grab a copy of this 167 page book and compare Mr. Hogarth's art with any other artist and see for yourself the detail he put into his work.
