Burne Hogarth Tarzan Sunday 28.05.1950

Comic Strip
50 x 73 cm (19.69 x 28.74 in.)




A very dynamic example with Tarzan in all panels (and lots of different poses) and from very late in Hogarths run, in the rare landscape format. First published May 28th 1950...

This is what Heritage had to say:
Burne Hogarth Tarzan #1003 Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 5-28-50 (United Feature Syndicate, 1950). An episode from the story arc "Tarzan and the Adventurers" features Tarzan escaping from the Dagomba stockade with his unconscious friend Mabuli. Crafted in ink over graphite on Bristol board sections. They have been joined on the reverse side with production tape, for a combined image area of 27.5" x 18.5".

About Burne Hogarth

Due to his father’s early death, Hogarth began work at age 15, when he became the assistant at the Associated Editors Syndicate and illustrated a series called Famous Churches of the World. He worked for several years as an editor and advertising artist. This work provided steady (and, by 1929, crucial) employment. In 1929, he drew his first comic strip, Ivy Hemmanhaw, for the Barnet Brown Company; in 1930 he drew Odd Occupations and Strange Accidents for Ledd Features Syndicate. As the Great Depression worsened, Hogarth relocated to New York City at the urging of friends. He found employment with King Features Syndicate in 1934, drawing Charles Driscoll’s pirate adventure Pieces of Eight (1935). In 1936 came the assignment that catapulted Hogarth’s illustration career. With Tarzan, Hogarth brought together classicism, expressionism and narrative into a new form of dynamic, sequential art: the newspaper comic strip. Hogarth drew the Tarzan "Sunday (newspaper comic strip) page" for 12 years (1937–45; 1947–50). This work has been reprinted often, most recently by NBM Publishing.
