Ending Soon! Victory Harben™: The Complete Graphic Novel Adventures Kickstarter Campaign

Only Two Days Left!
The Kickstarter Campaign Ends on
Thursday, April 18, at 6:59 PM EDT

It’s your last chance to back the Kickstarter campaign for Victory Harben: The Complete Graphic Novel Adventures! The campaign, which ends in only two days, includes Kickstarter-exclusive covers and rewards that will never be offered again. 

Tag along on Victory’s adventures in two rip-roaring, epic graphic novels—Victory Harben: Warriors of Zandar and Victory Harben: Ghosts of Omos—as she and her furry companion Hucklebuck fight for life and freedom against the brutal alien Keelars and their mysterious overlord on the strange planet of Zandar!

Don’t miss out on the exciting and highly collectible exclusive rewards, such as the vintage-style “pocketbook” paperback anthology Tales from the Void, which collects for the first time six fantastical tales of the Swords of Eternity Super-Arc, the epic cycle that launched the Edgar Rice Burroughs Universe series. Original to this anthology are a Quantum Prelude, a Quantum Postlude, and five new connecting Quantum Interludes in which Victory Harben gives context to the unfolding story of the Super-Arc that occurs between each story, plus an all-new novelette—“Victory Harben and the Lord of the Veiled Eye” by Christopher Paul Carey—in which the ERB Universe collides head-on with cosmic horror at the edge of the solar system! This special “pocketbook” edition—the style of which will be familiar to collectors from the Edgar Rice Burroughs paperback editions published in the late 1970s and early 1980s—will never be offered again.

For an overview of the Kickstarter campaign, check out this video with writer Mike Wolfer and ERB Universe Creative Director Christopher Paul Carey, which was recorded last week.

Now head on over to Kickstarter and back the campaign for Victory Harben: The Complete Graphic Novel Adventures before it’s too late!

Cover art by Douglas Klauba

Dejah Thoris, fairest daughter of Helium—and indeed, of all Barsoom—comes to life in the pages of A Princess of Mars: Shadow of the Assassins, as she sets off on the first adventure of her young life, plunging headlong into a murky den of treachery and deadly peril. This brand-new tale by noted science fiction author Ann Tonsor Zeddies is the first novel ever to feature the incomparable Martian princess Dejah Thoris in the lead role.


Born to an ancient line of noble and courageous forebears, Dejah Thoris, young and headstrong princess of the mighty empire of Helium, longs for a life of excitement and purpose beyond the cloistered walls of her royal palace. When a foreign ambassador arrives with an invitation to visit his city-state in hopes of fostering diplomatic relations, the princess defies the protests of her father and jed, traveling to the shadowy metropolis of Zor as Helium’s emissary. But Dejah Thoris soon finds that her hosts are not like the gallant folk of Helium, and before she knows it, their nefarious machinations ensnare her in a tangled web of artifice, perfidy, and murder—and a treacherous plot that portends tragedy not only for her own family, but for the entire Heliumetic empire.

Bonus Novella: “John Carter of Mars®: Swords of the Mind” by Geary Gravel

John Carter is baffled when he encounters his son’s badly damaged flier racing through the Martian skies with no one on board. The mystery only deepens when he traces the lost ship to its last port of call and finds himself battling for his life in a city of illusions—where the peril is all too real!

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! Preorders of Victory Harben: Fires of Halos are now available directly from ERB, Inc. Softcover and hardcover editions, as well as a limited Collector’s Edition with a signed bookplate, will be available in a simultaneous release. The novel is expected to ship to customers Fall 2022.

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!


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. But the young woman Tii-laa cannot abide such hopeless dogma. 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!
