I Am A Barbarian, a historical novel set in ancient Rome, was written by “Master of Adventure” Edgar Rice Burroughs in 1941. It tells the story of a young man’s courage in the face of cruel adversity, and of his tragic love for a beautiful Belgian slave girl.  

Britannicus, the defiant son of an arrogant chief in far-off Britain, was just another barbarian to the haughty Romans who captured and enslaved him. Britannicus’ mother and father were also captured by the Romans, and he was never able to speak to them again. Britannicus becomes the personal slave of Emperor Caligula amid the decadence of Imperial Rome; he faces death time and again, in the gladiatorial arena, in chariot races, in the twisted hearts of palaces, always at the hands of his insane master: Caligula, the most bloodthirsty Roman of them all.

Britannicus watches as Caligula sinks into depravity, forces rivals to commit suicide, falsely accuses and kills individuals in order to seize their estates during a financial crisis caused by his own profligate gambling and wasteful spending, and orders his guards to throw scores of people into the arena to be eaten by wild animals. Only the imagination of Edgar Rice Burroughs could have reincarnated the chariot races, the intrigues, and the sights and sounds of long-dead Imperial Rome—and now, the able team of writer Tom Simmons, artist Mike Dubisch, and letterer Jamal Walton brings this extraordinary tale, with its vivid story, art, and period authenticity, to life again in a newly printed graphic novel based on their online comic strip.

WRITER/ADAPTER: Thomas Simmons

“In mid-1941, with mounting personal and health issues and the world once again at war, Edgar Rice Burroughs penned I Am a Barbarian, his second and final historical novel. The story is dark and in a number of ways decidedly unlike his prior work, which made adapting it into an action/adventure strip and subsequent printed graphic novel a challenge I was happy to undertake,” says screenwriter and graphic novelist Tom Simmons.

In addition to adapting the I Am a Barbarian and The Outlaw of Torn™ online strips, Simmons has several screenplays and graphic novels to his credit. “It was a pleasure to have collaborated with Lovecraft Award–winning artist Mike Dubisch on this effort, as well as with the talented Jamal Walton. The satisfying culmination to our five-year commitment with the online strip is this excellent graphic novel,” states the writer.

ARTIST/COLORIST: Mike Dubisch

Internationally known fantasy illustrator and graphic novelist Mike Dubisch has his roots in golden age horror comics and pulp science fiction. His art has been used in toy design and illustration for Star Wars, The Wheel of Time, and Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying games, covers for Aliens vs. Predator, and graphic adaptations of The Boxcar Children and other children’s literature. His work has appeared in Science Fiction Age, Realms of Fantasy, Weird Tales, and H. P. Lovecraft’s Magazine of Horror.

“I was huge reader of Burroughs at a young age, drawn to Tarzan’s jungle adventures amongst the apes, a counterpoint to my obsession with King Kong and giant monsters. Later, John Carter’s fantastic adventures enthralled me at the same time as I discovered the great illustrators and comic artists who ended up shaping my artistic vision,” the artist says.

Dubisch is an instructor at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. He also creates fine art, prints, and experimental films exploring H. P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos.

Remembering Willie Jones

Posted on May 11, 2022

We were deeply saddened to learn of the passing of former longtime ERB, Inc., employee Willie Jones on April 27, 2022. Willie was hired as a secretary under Marion Burroughs in 1977. She went on to become an integral part of the ERB, Inc., team, being promoted to Assistant Secretary and working closely with the executive staff on matters related to the company’s intellectual property, until she retired in 2019. She is survived by her son, Robert Jones.

Willie loved dogs and country music. She was known to fans from her attendance at some of the Burroughs Bibliophiles Dum-Dum conventions over the years, and even traveled to New York City to see Disney’s Tarzan on Broadway theatrical premiere.

Willie’s hard work was invaluable in protecting the legacy of Edgar Rice Burroughs for more than four decades. We will all miss her deeply.

Donations may be made in memory of Willie Jones to Parkinson’s Resource Organization, one of her favorite causes.

Shipping Update: Tarzan Books #13–16

Posted on March 18, 2022

We have received the print proofs for Tarzan volumes #13–16 in the Edgar Rice Burroughs Authorized Library (they look awesome!) and ordered the final books from the printer, and now we are just waiting for them to arrive in our warehouse. As we had indicated when the set went up for preorder, we had hoped for the books to ship to customers before the end of Q1 2022 (i.e., March 31), but now the printer estimates that the books will arrive in our warehouse sometime in April.

The good news is we have significantly expanded the length of the afterwords and archival sections for this set of books, so you will have more to enjoy when you do get them in your hands! To give you some idea of what we mean, in Tarzan #13–16, the afterwords (detailing the behind-the scenes history for each novel) range from 30–47 pages and the “From the Archives of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc.” sections (featuring rare and never-before-published materials from our archives) range from 56 pages to a whopping 78 pages! Among the archival treasures in Tarzan books #13–16, you will find:

  • A previously unpublished film treatment written by Edgar Rice Burroughs for Tarzan and the City of Gold that was submitted to MGM circa 1938
  • The never-before-in-print four-page manuscript of ERB’s “Pronunciation of Coined Words Used in the Tarzan Novels” (ever wonder how to pronounce “Nemone”?)
  • Previously unpublished illustrations by ERB, including maps; prehistoric creatures and beasts from Pellucidar; characters from the novels; and the O-220 dirigible that carried Tarzan, Jason Gridley, and crew to the Earth’s core!
  • Tons of never-before-seen correspondence, and much, much more!

Here’s a peek at the proofs to tide you over until the books hit your mailbox:

In the Wild Adventures of Edgar Rice Burroughs series, today’s authors innovate and expand upon Burroughs’ classic tales of wonder in truly wild fashion, even moving his characters and storylines outside the bounds of canon to alternate universes! Skies of Venus, the latest volume in the series, transports readers back to the mysterious, shrouded world of Amtor that was discovered by Carson Napier in Edgar Rice Burroughs’ classic novel Pirates of Venus, but this time to experience it through the eyes of an Earthman of the twenty-first century.

Skies of Venus: A Novel of Amtor by Neal Romanek features cover art by Richard Hescox and interior illustrations by Douglas Klauba, and will be available in paperback, hardcover, and a hardcover Collector’s Edition. The book is expected to ship Winter 2021/2022.

Intrigue on Amtor

Virgil Erath is on death row for a crime he didn’t commit. But he gets a new beginning when he is mystically transported to a planet of hallucinatory landscapes, warring humanoid races, and a cloud-filled sky that has never seen the sun. The inhabitants of this world call it Amtor—others have called it “Venus.”

Captured by a clan of winged warriors, Virgil is brought before the great Jong Kum Kloojong. But this “king of kings” is under attack by a deadly terrorist sect, and Virgil may be his only hope of saving Amtor from an apocalyptic war.
