    Hal Foster - Tarzan Sunday Comic Strip Original Art, dated 11-17-35 (King Features Syndicate, 1935). The field of comic strips was changed forever when Hal Foster began illustrating Tarzan's adventures. Foster was titled "the father of the adventure strip," and his work has inspired legions of cartoonists. His drawings also rank among the elite of those who have illustrated Tarzan, the Lord of the Jungle. Hal Foster was a master of expressive action, and no strip shows that off to better advantage than this one, "Trapped by Lions." Bravely facing down a ferocious feline, Tarzan saves the viking girl, Sigreda, and himself, just in the nick of time. A large piece, with an image area measuring approximately 20" x 26.5", the art is in Very Good condition; there is some tearing at the corners, and a few light creases, and some very light staining overall. None of these detract much from the overall eye-appeal of this incredible Sunday -- this is an outstanding example by a true comic strip master.
