Posted on August 30, 2022

August 30, 2022 (Tarzana, California) The Swords of Eternity super-arc of the groundbreaking Edgar Rice Burroughs Universe series concludes with Victory Harben: Fires of Halos by Christopher Paul Carey—featuring the world of Halos from Edgar Rice Burroughs’ legendary unpublished novel fragment, The Ghostly Script!

Born in Pellucidar…Mentored by Jason Gridley…Trained to Fight by Tarzan of the Apes

Readers have come to know Victory Harben from her side storyline in the novel Tarzan: Battle for Pellucidar; her adventures in the bonus novelettes “Pellucidar: Dark of the Sun,” “Victory Harben: Clash on Caspak,” and “Victory Harben: Stormwinds of Va-nah” in the first three Swords of Eternity books; and her starring role in the comic book miniseries Beyond the Farthest Star: Warriors of Zandar. Now, at last, get Victory’s complete origin story in Victory Harben: Fires of Halos, which is written so that it can be read as either a standalone novel by new readers or the epic conclusion to the four-book Swords of Eternity super-arc!

The daughter of Gretchen von Harben from Tarzan and the Tarzan Twins by Edgar Rice Burroughs and the warrior Nadok of Pellucidar, Victory spent the first twelve years of her life at the Earth’s core under the tutelage of two of the greatest minds of the twentieth century: Jason Gridley and Abner Perry. On the outer crust, she further honed her intellect at Oxford’s prestigious Darkheath College, earning an advanced degree in Theoretical Physics while she took breaks to exercise her muscles and fighting skills at Lord and Lady Greystoke’s Chamston-Hedding estate. Now all of Victory’s abilities and talents will be put to the test as she is hurled upon one of the strangest and most daunting odysseys imaginable!

VICTORY HARBEN: FIRES OF HALOS

When Gridley Wave contact between worlds is inexplicably broken, young physicist Victory Harben returns to her home at the Earth’s core to help solve the mystery. Soon Victory finds the riddles of her past are hopelessly entangled with the machinations of an ancient and inscrutable queen of the Mahars, the inner world’s dethroned reptilian overlords. Unwillingly hurled into the cosmic void by the queen, Victory is hunted down across space and time by a vengeful being whose flaming sword absorbs the souls of the slain, delivering them to the ravenous lords of Halos. As Victory races to track down the key to her destiny, a storm of malevolent forces gathers against her, unleashing the secret rulers of the afterlife in an unholy tempest that threatens to shatter reality itself.

Bonus Novelette: “Beyond the Farthest Star™: Rescue on Zandar”
by Mike Wolfer

When a hunting party from the village of the Ki-vaas goes missing, the tribe’s age-old customs decree the fate of its lost members to have been dictated by the gods.

Striking out on her own, she must risk both her place in the tribe and her very life, facing the planet Zandar’s deadly wilds and savage creatures in a desperate attempt to save her missing tribespeople!

New Online Comic Strip: The Resurrection of Jimber Jaw™

Posted on August 18, 2022

ANNOUNCING THE LAUNCH OF AN ALL-NEW WEBCOMIC STRIP—THE FIRST IN 3 YEARS!

The Resurrection of Jimber Jaw is a creation from the incredible mind of Edgar Rice Burroughs as only he could conceive it. Imagine two men flying in a small plane over Siberia deep in Russia, one a pilot and the other a cryogenicist. (Don’t look it up; we’ll tell you: cryogenics is the branch of physics dealing with the production and effects of very low temperatures.) Then engine trouble tragically causes the plane to put down in the middle of that vast expanse. And finally, the current from a furious thunderstorm erodes the banks of a small mountain to reveal a human form encased in the ice, lying there perfectly preserved since the Upper Paleolithic era—50,000 years ago!

Could you imagine that? Edgar Rice Burroughs did, and he had only one solution to the discovery: bring that man back to life! What would it take? Once he was thawed out, maybe a major blood transfusion from the pilot, followed by an adrenalin chloride solution into the belly. That would be enough to cause the specimen to open his mouth and yawn! But more would be needed: doses of both anterior pituitary fluid and posterior pituitary fluid. And then finish it off with an injection of sex hormones from sheep. With all of that, and weeks of rest and assurances, it would bring to life a living, breathing man of the Stone Age.

But there’s so much more to the story, and the best way to see how this man—named Jimber Jaw after a grizzly bear he resembled before shaving and getting an update to his wardrobe—coped with this improbability is to subscribe to our webcomics program at www.erburroughs.com. See how this reborn mammoth of a man went to Hollywood and became Jim Stone, mighty wrestler and boxer, and then fell in love with a movie star that resembled his sweetheart from the Stone Age, only to be pitched headlong into the treacherous perils of modern-day romance.

Written by Bobby Panzarella with assistance from writer and artist Trevor Markwart, The Resurrection of Jimber Jaw is a sensational tale that only Edgar Rice Burroughs, the Master of Adventure, could bring to life!

Subscribe to our Edgar Rice Burroughs Online Comic Strips and read the first episode of The Resurrection of Jimber Jaw today with many more to follow!

THE CREATIVE TEAM

Writer

Robert Panzarella is a lifelong Edgar Rice Burroughs fan. He started reading Tarzan of the Apes in junior high and has been hooked ever since. He is an emergency room physician, having graduated from Texas Tech University School of Medicine in 1980, and has worked in emergency rooms from 1983 to the present. He has been writing novels, screenplays, and other works ever since his college days at the University of Texas at Austin, and has completed two novels, a couple of short stories, and ten screenplays. In 1999, he made the independent film Joey Goes to Jail, for which he wrote the screenplay, as well as acted in it, directed it, and produced it, and he has acted in several films and commercials shot in the Houston area. He has written screenplays for Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc., adapting The Resurrection of Jimber Jaw, The Girl from Hollywood, The Monster Men, The Lad and the Lion, The Mucker, The Return of the Mucker, and The Mad King. He has also written the screenplays for a proposed streaming series of The Mad King and is currently working on a proposed streaming series of The Lad and the Lion. He has been wanting to do a comic strip of The Resurrection of Jimber Jaw for a long time now.

Artist and Co-Writer

Trevor Markwart is a Canadian former high school art teacher and occasional screenwriter, whose produced films include They Wait (2008), which starred Jaime King and Michael Biehn, and was based on his original spec. He’s mostly focused on being a comics creator, and the first graphic novel he drew, Tales From the Black Circle, was nominated for a Rondo horror award. His four-issue crowdfunded series H. P. Lovercraft’s Beauty and the Beast, which he wrote and illustrated, was recently published as a mainstream graphic novel. His comic book heroes are Richard Corben and Graham “Ghastly” Ingels, and he occasionally signs his work “Morbid” in tribute to the latter.

After Tarzan departs Southern California following a visit with a dear friend, bandits mysteriously dressed as cowboys straight out of the Old West waylay his train and make off with a precious Native American artifact—taking the daughter of relic’s owner hostage in the process. Now Tarzan must set off on foot from the train’s wrecked and twisted ruins in pursuit of the criminals, making his way across the American Southwest, a land as different from his beloved jungle homeland as can be imagined.

VEVE REVEALS FIRST ‘TARZAN’ NFT COLLECTIBLE THROUGH PARTNERSHIP WITH EDGAR RICE BURROUGHS, INC. 

Posted on June 2, 2022

Fans of the Lord of the Jungle Can Collect Iconic Comic Book in Time for 50th Anniversary

AUCKLAND, New Zealand, June 1, 2022VeVe, the largest mobile-first digital collectibles platform, has announced a new partnership with Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc., the company that manages the worldwide rights to the iconic character Tarzan®, to bring the legendary Tarzan of the Apes™ comic books to the platform.

Tarzan is one of the most recognizable characters in popular culture and a worldwide phenomenon since his creation by Edgar Rice Burroughs, one of the best-selling authors of the twentieth century. Comic books starring the heroic Lord of the Jungle® have been consistently in print for nearly a century, written and illustrated by some of the most renowned and beloved creators past and present. In the initial drop, collectors can purchase one of the most celebrated Tarzan comic books exclusively through the VeVe app (available to download on the App Store and Google Play) on Friday, June 3 at 8 AM PST.

This initial drop of Tarzan collectibles commemorates the classic issue #207 of the long-running Tarzan of the Apes comic book series featuring the story “Origin of the Ape-Man,” written and illustrated by comics legend Joe Kubert. First published 50 years ago, issue #207 was the first time Kubert brought his creative talents to the Lord of the Jungle, depicting him as no one ever had before in his raw, gritty, and action-packed style, defining a new look for the ape-man for an entire generation of fans that still resonates in our imaginations today. In 1976, Joe Kubert founded The Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art. The school taught students the craft of sequential comic book art and still thrives today as The Kubert School. This historical release includes a main cover highlighting one of Kubert’s best-known illustrations of all time plus four additional covers: Variant Cover Design, Black and White, Gold, and Platinum.

“Tarzan has proven to be a timeless character, maintaining his perennial qualities of strength, courage, protector of wildlife and the environment, and defender of those in need, even as he adapts to the changing world,”  said Jim Sullos, President of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. “Every generation has its Tarzan, and its own way of experiencing the ape-man’s adventures, and this generation is no different. We are extremely proud and excited to partner with Veve to bring Tarzan into the new frontier of digital collectibles, where we are certain the Lord of the Jungle will once again triumph.”

“Tarzan is one of pop culture’s most enduring characters and we’re thrilled to bring him and this iconic comic series into the digital world,” said David Yu, Co-Founder of VeVe. “We believe Veve is a wonderful way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of this comic as well as Tarzan’s and Joe Kubert’s ongoing legacy for fans to cherish forever.”

Through the VeVe platform, fans can showcase their digital collections in the app’s virtual showrooms as epic 3D dioramas, as well as virtually visit, comment on and like showrooms from other collectors. VeVe also offers an augmented reality (AR) photo mode that allows  collectors to interact with every digital collectible in 3D, as well as share their collectibles through VeVe’s in-app social feed or on external social platforms.
