Carson of Venus Comic Book nominated in 1939 Retro-Hugo Awards

Carson of Venus Cover

Edgar Rice Burroughs “Carson of Venus” is one of five books nominated last month for best novel in the 1939 Retro Hugo Awards. The winner will be announced at Loncon 3 in London, U.K., on August 14.

I think this is a real credit to ERB’s staying power, especially considering that “Carson”–unlike “Princess” and other ERB works–isn’t generally considered particularly influential in the genre.
