READ RESTORED STRIPS FROM ‘TARZAN IN THE CITY OF GOLD’ BY COMICS MASTER BURNE HOGARTH
By Andy Khouri
“Aware that he was going to work for a competing syndicate, [Hal] Foster sought to leave Tarzan on such an artistic high note that he would be impossible to replace.
“He hadn’t reckoned on 25-year-old Burne Hogarth.”
That passage from Scott Tracy Griffin’s introduction to Tarzan In The City Of Gold is as bold a statement as any I can think of to compel a comics and illustration fan to pay attention. The young Hogarth did indeed hold his own against the legendary Prince Valiant creator Foster, going on to illustrate (and sometimes write) nearly 600 Tarzan strips between 1937 and 1950, of which the first 150 or so are beautifully restored and reprinted in a new deluxe volume from Titan Books.

ComicsAlliance presents an exclusive four-strip preview of Tarzan In The City Of Gold, a story that’s at once a treat for aficionados of classic comic strip illustration and a gorgeous introduction to the form courtesy of one of its most accomplished masters.

ATTIRE SPOTLIGHT: AJ AND THE HARLEQUIN
The pint-sized black widow of the Divas division in Divas Champion AJ Lee clearly has an interest in comic books, hence her Harley Quinn-inspired character and mannerisms…and her look. Since becoming the champ, AJ’s been seen wearing outfits with two designs, primarily on her shorts but recently she’s sported her “Love Bites” t-shirts in the same way (Picture 4). Some days, the colors of her outfits are obvious shout-outs to Harley (Pictures 2-3) while other times she makes more subtle hints with pigtails.

I know what you mean. Even with so much new technology and ways to explore it all, its really not as easy as it used to be. Various universes, realities, and just different takes on iconic characters can be overwhelming. Of course, it makes it more confusing when shows like Arrow and films like Avengers showcase characters that aren’t exactly reflective of their original source material, i.e., they’re different :p

I remember the first time I sought out a particular comic book on my own, an X-Men comic, since the The Animated Series was huge in the early 90’s. There was a Thrifty’s in walking distance from my school, and they had a rack of Marvel, DC, and Disney comic books. I found X-Men #15. By that time I had been collecting Superman, Batman and Donald Duck comics with my brother, but these heroes seemed so different from the lot, and had a bigger cast than those of the cartoon show.I couldn’t wait for the following issue.

Head to your local comics shop and look around. There is something for everybody out there, past and present. Good luck!

Anonymous said: Hi! I was wondering of you could help me out. If I wanted to read some Spider-Man comics, where should I start? With all the different versions and series I'm not sure where to begin, can you help?

Not long ago I stopped cold turkey my Spider-Man collecting with the recent years-long Superior Spider-Man storyarc (in which Doc Ock takes over Peter Parker’s body). That series just wrapped up and in its place began a new Amazing Spider-Man series by Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos which had a brand-spankin’ new #1 issue drop last week. Again I didn’t bother with the Superior story, but with this new direction I felt the time was right to see how mah boi Parker was going about his business, considering he has no memory from his time “dead” and what Octavius had done with his persona.

For new Spidey tales, the monthly Amazing Spider -Man (vol.3) #1 is a good start.

Now, for past classics, here is a list which I hope helps. These are SOME my picks, so if you check ‘em out and end up loathing what you read, please blame me! These stories are from the “regular” continuity and are collected in trade paperback:

Spider-Man: Blue by Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale

Peter Parker: Spider-Man by Paul Jenkins and Mark Buckingham

Spectacular Spider-Man by Paul Jenkins and Humberto Ramos

Amazing Spider-Man by J. Michael Straczynski and John Romita Jr.

Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man by Peter David and Mike Weiringo

The Death of Gwen Stacy by Gerry Conway and John Romita Sr.

Kraven’s Last Hunt by J. M. DeMatteis and Mike Zeck

The Death of Jean DeWolff by Peter David and Rich Buckler

Maximum Carnage by various creators

Marvel Team-Up by Chris Claremont and John Byrne

Spider-Man/Human Torch by Dan Slott and Ty Templeton

Untold Tales of Spider-Man by Kurt Busiek and Pat Olliffe

—Ask for these tales at your local comics shop!
