Covering the Worlds of Edgar Rice Burroughs
Ships in 3-5 business days
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.
