Tarzan – In The City of Gold (Vol. 1) reviewed on PopMatters


PopMatters reviews the Tarzan – In The City of Gold (Vol. 1): The Complete Burne Hogarth Sundays and Dailies Library, providing and interesting retrospective on the genre. Jeremy Estes’s review reads more like an interesting and in-depth article about the world of Tarzan and pulp comics. It goes through the history of the franchise and covers the various of media which featured the king of the jungle. The main gripe of the author is that “Tarzan’s world never opens up” and despite its diversity and number of reincarnations, it never transcends its original premise. At the same time, however, the collection covers mostly the early days of Tarzan, and an age when many of the conventions and archetypes were the standard.
