"For Tarzan buffs, it is a must!" - Basement Rejects "Tarzan in the City of Gold is a treasure that has been buried in the jungle of the past waiting for a modern-day adventurer to discover and explore it again." - Pop Mythology "Like the jungle man he's drawing, Burne Hogarth is a beast....The way he illustrates flora around Tarzan's kingdom, his understanding of different kinds of anatomy and proportion, and the breadth of emotional faces he illustrates for so many animals is awe-inspiring. Even if you're not particularly a Tarzan enthusiast, you will probably be able to appreciate this book's artistic merit." - Ain't It Cool "It didn't take long for me to get on board with this book and the fantastic ride it delivered. A great introduction, nice reproductions in a manageable size, and most importantly the comic strip itself is awesome fun! A definite for any Burne Hogarth/Tarzan fan, or lover of comic strips. I'll be looking forward to more." - Pop Cults "Whether you're a collector, a comic historian, or a fan interested in learning more about one of the great forefathers of the medium, you'll want to check out this brand new, luxurious hardcover collection." - Fanboy Comics "For fans of Tarzan, In the City of Gold is a must have and anyone who has an appreciation for the excellent artwork which used to grace the pages of the Sunday funnies would be best served grabbing a copy as well. The same goes for anyone interested in the long and storied history of the comic strip and the medium of comics as well. Titan Books has produced a great collection and I eagerly anticipate the upcoming volumes in the series." - The Gaming Gang "A stunning peak into the beginnings of a global phenomenon, into the early years of the comics industry that you love so much, into the birth of a venerable, Eisner Hall of Fame comic artist.Keep it on your coffee table. It's sure to start a conversation." - ComicsVerse "The stories are fun and fast moving, the captions (no word balloons, thank you!) and pictures work well together. Hogarth amazes with each turn of the page. Burne Hogarth's Tarzan in the City of Gold Vol. 1 is an ideal reprint volume--important material, well produced, and priced reasonably. These are the hallmarks of Titan Books reprint line. Buy this book." - Culture Mass "This is yet another stunning archival comics collection from Titan Books, this time reprinting Burne Hogarth's incredible Sunday color comics from back in the 1930s. It's a gorgeous book, totally worth it just for the Hogarth artwork." - Comic Book Review "Beautifully illustrated by Burne Hogarth, these newspaper strips have been wonderfully restored in full color, and it looks simply amazing in this large hardcover book from Titan." - Awkward Geeks "Well worth the cover price to any Tarzan or Hog-a-rth fan." - Man of LA "A wonderful collection." - Comics Bulletin "Art is exceptional." - Adventures in Poor Taste "Another top quality book from Titan and the reproduction is lovely... I could write "wonderful fun" a dozen times but I won't. I'll just write: "Wonderful fun a dozen times"!" - Comic Bits Online "Beautifully rendered and reassuringly formulaic these masterful interpretations of the utterly authentic Ape-Man are a welcome addition to any comics' connoisseurs' cupboard and you would be crazy not to take advantage of this beautiful collection." - Comics Review "Magnificent." - Retroist "A treat for aficionados of classic comic strip illustration and a gorgeous introduction to the form courtesy of one of its most accomplished masters." - Comics Alliance
