My Edgar Rice Burroughs 100 Year Art Chronology is on sale now!

This Chronology is so packed with images and information, that there just isn't enough room to talk about it all.

One of those things are the 222 color movie stills taken during the filming of Tarzan's many movies and used as the covers of the UK's Tarzan Adventures in the 1950s.

While the Tarzan movies were black & white, these are COLOR stills that have never been seen in the US!

While I was assembling them for the Chronology, I sometimes wondered what they might be saying during these shots. Too irreverent for inclusion in the Chronology, here is TARZAN FUMETTI!

And not a single Cheetah joke in the bunch!

I already did that in the Tarzan's British Heritage section linked below.

You can find 222 of these movie stills, unseen in the US, in Volume Four of the Edgar Rice Burroughs 100 Year Art Chronology!

And ... while we're spoofing ... here is one fron the U.S. Dell series, plus a combination of two Pulp covers from Volume One combined to create the crossover event that every ERB fan always wished had happened: Tarzan of Mars!

I've started a new section on the History of Comics. For the initial overview of how comics are made, start here.

Tarzan of the Apes is the first subject. Tarzan is a character who has been an integral part of the comics industry since the very beginning of the artform.

Tarzan's birthright isn't the only thing British about him. Tarzan comics have a very long publishing history in the foreign language known as the King's English. Explore here:

Tarzan wasn't the first creation of Edgar Rice Burroughs. Before the apeman, he created the greatest swordsman on two worlds:
John Carter of Mars!
