The Library of American Comics, a website dedicated to archiving and preserving comic strips from American newspapers, has just been awarded three Eisner Awards. One of those went to Edgar Rice Burroughs’s Tarzan: The Complete Russ Manning Newspaper Strips, receiving the Best Archival Comic Strip Collection title.

Considered the “Oscars” of the comic world, the Eisner Awards are given out annually at the San Diego Comic-Con. They are named after the pioneering graphic novelist Will Eisner and span over two dozen categories.

Edgar Rice Burroughs Classics nominated in Retro-Hugo Prize to Honor Science Fiction of 1938

Have you ever found yourself engrossed in a science fiction classic – say, John Wyndham’s “Sleepers of Mars,” C.S. Lewis’s “Out of the Silent Planet” or Edgar Rice Burroughs’s “Carson of Venus” – and thought what a pity it is that they were published before 1953, when the Hugo Awards, one of science fiction’s most prestigious prizes (along with the Nebula Awards) were first given?
