Tarzan – In The City of Gold (Vol. 1): The Complete Burne Hogarth Sundays and Dailies Library by Don Garden is a coffee table book featuring the early comic strips. While the title is similar to the Tarzan and the City of Gold, the story is different.
For me, the story is secondary to the art when it comes to these type of books (a very close second, nevertheless…). While the adventures of Tarzan are always exciting, and especially in this format leaving you wanting for more, I found the story (which included time travel at some point) to be somewhat lackluster.
I really enjoy these big format books which bring the comics to life. Much of the art in the panels is very detailed and rich, the format (which should be bigger) really brings out the fine detail in the artwork and makes the panels immensely enjoyable.
That being said, I wished the book would have been bigger to show off more of the art. While the hardcover is a decent size (12” cover I believe), there artwork is merely “bigger” than the original reprint but nowhere near the size of the original art.
This is a book which is well worth the cover price to any Tarzan or Hogarth fan. The non-glossy pages are a great choice for this collection and the reprints look very good on them.
