AUTHOR 
Thomas Zachek

I grew up on the Tarzan movies and, to a lesser extent, the comics. But I became hooked on the real Tarzan in high school after picking up a new Ace paperback edition of Tarzan and the Lost Empire for fifty cents, the one with the Frank Frazetta cover of our hero, monkey on his back, hanging from a limb on a cliff and looking down upon the Roman city. I went on to collect the entire series of Ace and Ballantine paperback reissues of Burroughs’ tales (and still have them). thomas-zachekI discovered that Burroughs’ stories were quite unlike the family-friendly Tarzan of the movies, with inarticulate Johnny Weismuller as the hulking hero living for some reason in the jungle with a classy, aristocratic Jane. No, Burroughs’ hero No, Burroughs’ hero was a British lord who spoke educated English and had a fascinating backstory.
I was impressed with the far superior level of development and action found in these tales. I attempted writing my first Tarzan tale in 2005 (Tarzan and the “Fountain of Youth”) as something of a lark, and then followed it, to date, with six more Tarzan tales. Friends encouraged me to try to get the stories published. I am grateful to Jim Sullos of ERB, Inc., for giving me the chance. Here are my first three. In these stories, I have tried to craft realistic, page-turning adventure tales featuring classic Tarzan elements while at the same time taking the character in directions that have never been done in Tarzan stories before. I invite you to share your thoughts and comments with me at zachekbooks@gmail.com.

The Mad King – all new web comic in our subscription lineup

Posted on November 14, 2016

Life as a gentleman farmer in the once-wild West was hardly exciting enough for an adventurer and master swordsman like Barney Custer. So when he had the chance to make the long voyage to the land of Lutha, his mother’s native land, he took it – and encountered more adventure in a few months than most people find in a lifetime. mad-king

The Mad King is set in the fictional European kingdom of Lutha, where young Custer (the son of an American farmer and a runaway Luthan princess, Victoria Rubinroth) is unaware of his royal blood, much less that he is a dead ringer for his relative Leopold, the current king of Lutha. Barney arrives just as King Leopold escapeds his ten years’ imprisonment at the hands of his scheming uncle, Prince Peter of Blentz. Much to Barney’s, and everyone else’s confusion, he is naturally mistaken for the king, leading to numerous complications.

mad-king-2

The fictional country of Lutha’s location is, as Burroughs describes it, between Austria and Serbia. Lutha’s circumstances mirror those of many Balkan nations forced to choose sides in the opening phase of the First World War.

mad-king-3

The Mad King: a crumbling kingdom, a black-hearted regent and his diabolical cohorts, a beautiful princess trapped in a dark and dismal dungeon, sinister plots and harrowing escapes – this is what Barney Custer found and this is what awaits the reader when he begins this tale of romantic adventure from the pen of master storyteller Edgar Rice Burroughs – compete with swordplay and intrigue, a beautiful princess in need of rescue, a courageous American hero, a throne in danger, evil conspirators, derring-do and narrow escapes. 

THE MAD KING TEAM

WRITER Martin Gately

Martin Gately commenced his writing career in the late 1980s working for DC Thomson on Starblazer – his first ever published story was illustrated by Enrique Alcatena. After a short stint as an editorial assistant, he left publishing behind to work in the British criminal justice system, at both the Serious Fraud Office and the Attorney General’s Office.

Returning to writing in the last few years, he was reunited with Alcatena on the Phantom: Generationsstory Sherwood Jungle from Moonstone Books and also The Cryptid Kid comic strip for Fortean Times, to which he is a regular contributor of articles. Gately writes the continuing adventures of Gaston Leroux’s detective character Rouletabille for the Tales of the Shadowmen series from Black Coat Press, as well as contributing to numerous other anthologies from this publisher.

Martin is also the author of the official short story prequel to Philip José Farmer’s first novel (in The World’s of Philip José Farmer Volume 4 from Meteor House). His most recent published work appears in the Mammoth Book of Jack the Ripper Stories (Mammoth Books). He is currently working on his first novel.

ARTIST Enrique Alcatena

A self-taught artist, Enrique ‘Quique’ Alcatena began his career in the 1970s as assistant of Chiche Medrano, working for Argentine publisher Ediciones Récord; his first signed work appeared in the magazine Pif Pif in 1976. In 1982 he started to work for the children’s magazine Anteojito where his work was mostly surreal mythology filled fantasy. Starting from the late 1970s, Alcatena worked for British comics publisher DC Thomson on the boy’s weekly comic Crunch and the legendary digest-sized science fiction/fantasy series Starblazer.

After drawing for DC Comics the Adventures of Superman annual (1987) and the miniseries Hawkworld (1989), he worked for other American comic publishers including Marvel and Dark Horse. Among several other titles, he illustrated issues of Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight, Adventures of Superman, Conan the Savage, Green Lantern, The Flash, and Predator vs. Judge Dredd vs. Aliens: Incubus and Other Stories.

LETTERER Josh Aitken

Josh Aitken has provided lettering, production and design services for a variety of publishers, including Image, IDW, Moonstone and Arcana. He has also assisted many independent writers and artists on projects that were released through Kickstarter, Comixology and Amazon. He worked with Zeros2Heroes Media as an assistant editor during their “Comic Creation Nation” campaign, and his first short story “Old Friends” was a bonus story in the Phantom Generations Collection published by Moonstone Books.

Josh is now an animation and FX technical director for Keyframe Digital Productions, working on children’s and live action television projects, as well as feature films. He still likes to work on the odd comic project, and comics will always be a large part of his life.

Josh can usually be found living off a steady diet of Will Eisner and Moebius, watching reruns of Batman: The Animated Series, or working on the pitch bible for a cartoon series he is creating with his brother.

Curiosity Rover Finds Weird ‘Egg Rock’ Meteorite on Mars

Posted on November 4, 2016

mars-panorama-1NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity stumbled upon a dark grey, golf-ball-size object last week that looks nothing like the typical red-orange rocks that are normally seen on Mars.

To figure out exactly what this weird rock is and where it came from, Curiosity used its on-board rock-zapping laser to analyze the rock’s chemical composition. This test revealed that it is an iron-nickel meteorite that fell from the Martian sky. Curiosity’s science team dubbed the newfound meteorite “Egg Rock.”

Live Tarzan show at the Shanghai Disney Resort

Posted on November 1, 2016

live-tarzan-show-at-the-shanghai-disney-resort

There is a moment in Shanghai Disney Resort’s live Tarzan show where the audience holds its collective breath. Tarzan and Jane dangle from a large hoop suspended high above the Storyhouse Stage, their bodies intertwined. Then Jane lets go and stretches out her arms as if to fly through the air, while Tarzan, still grasping the hoop, catches her between his knees. She dives gracefully again and this time ends up vertical, her arms hooked over Tarzan’s feet. The only thing between her and gravity is his toes.
