Overview

Writer Jeff Long and artist Chris Wright probe the fantastic worlds of the man who created John Carter of Mars and Tarzan of the Apes - from the perspective of that ancient tabloid newspaper, The Barsoomian Blade. With a dash of The Onion, and in the tradition of Tarzan Alive by Philip Jose Farmer, "Covering the Worlds of Edgar Rice Burroughs" mixes analysis with a fair amount of absurdity. That kind of scholarship can only come from a life-long love of the works penned by the Master of Adventure. Long and Wright dive headfirst into a universe where princesses are incomparably beautiful, villains are unquestionably evil, and heroes are indisputably noble. The reporters and editors in that reality are ... well ... like reporters and editors everywhere - constantly chasing a roaring good story. And Burroughs provided dozens, in far-flung locales ranging from the Red Planet, to the jungles of Africa and the core of the Earth.
