    Description

    Burne Hogarth Tarzan Sunday Comic Strip #978 Original Art dated 12-4-49 (United Feature Syndicate, 1949). This stunning Sunday episode hails from the storyline "Tarzan and the Adventurers" (which ran from October 30, 1949 through July 16, 1950). Burne Hogarth's fantastic art makes the scene feel truly adventurous, and that last panel is simply ominous. A monumental talent, it's no surprise that Hogarth's series of art books are must-have material for many artists. His perspectives, dynamic anatomy, flow of energy, and use of light and shadow are beyond compare. This stunning piece is crafted in ink and red ink key lines over graphite on two pieces of conjoined Bristol board with an image area of approximately 27.5" x 18.5". The logo is a paste-up stat that is discolored, and the board is overall lightly toned. Soiling and edge and corner handling wear have this Sunday in Very Good condition.
