The American artist Burne Hogarth (25th December 1911 - 28th January 1996) specialized in drawing the dynamic anatomy of the human body and animals, as can be best seen in his rendition of 'Tarzan'. He studied at the Chicago Art Institute from age 12, and got his first cartoon job at 15, when he became the assistant at the Associated Editors Syndicate. At this time, he was assigned to illustrate a series called 'Famous Churches of the World'. In 1929, Hogarth created his first comic strip for the Barnet Brown Company, called 'Ivy Hemmanhaw'. A year later, he came up with 'Odd Occupations and Strange Accidents' for Ledd Features Syndicate.
After a couple of years working as an editor, advertising artist and panel illustrator, Hogarth found employment with the King Features Syndicate in 1934. Now located in New York, he did the pirate strip 'Pieces of Eight' with scripts by Charles Driscoll, starting in 1935. Two years later, Hogarth had a breakthrough when the United Features Syndicate hired him to take over the 'Tarzan' strip from Harold Foster. He drew the 'Tarzan' Sunday page for twelve years, from 1937 to 1945 and from 1947 to 1950, bringing it to new artistic heights.
During the 1945-1947 interlude, due to a dispute with his syndicate, Hogarth moved over to the Robert Hall Syndicate, where he created 'Drago', the adventures of a young Argentine nobleman battling post war Nazis in South America. While being in his second run on 'Tarzan', he additionally created 'Miracle Jones' for United Features, his first and only humorous series. In 1950 he completely abandoned his own comics production, to devote all his time to teaching at the Cartoonists and Illustrators School (later the School of Visual Arts), which he had founded with Silas Rhodes back in 1947. Hogarth taught at this school until 1970, and also authored a series of books on drawing and anatomy.
In 1972, years after his final professional comics work, Hogarth returned to the field with a new 'Tarzan' book, adapting Burroughs first novel, 'Taran of the Apes'.

In 1967 he was chosen by Robert Hodes of ERB, Inc. to do the daily and SundayTarzan strips for United Feature Syndicate. The strips had drifted far from the Burroughs vision and Russ was committed to bring the strip much closer to the style of the original Tarzan novels. Each week he wrote and illustrated -- with the assistance of artist Bill Stout -- the large colour Sunday page and six daily strips. His illustration and writing abilities brought a quality and accuracy to the strip that had not been seen since the days of Foster and Hogarth in the '30s and '40s.

"The Adventures of Tintin: Breaking Free" is an anarchist parody of the popular Tintin series of comics. An exercise in detournement, the book was written under the pseudonym J. Daniels and published by Attack International in April of 1988 and then republished in 1999.
The story features a number of characters based on those from the original series by Hergé, notably Tintin himself and Captain Haddock (referred to only as 'the Captain'), but not the original themes or plot. The story tracks Tintin's development from a disaffected, shoplifting youth to a revolutionary leader.
