Introducing Pellucidar: The World at the Earth’s Core

Another New Comic Strip Launch

When David Innes and Abner Perry build a revolutionary mining machine, their plan is to uncover vast mineral deposits far beneath the surface of the earth. But, on the “Iron Mole’s” first trip, they find themselves hurtling toward the center of the earth where death from the Earth’s molten mass of white-hot magma seems certain.

Instead, what Innes and Perry discover is that the earth’s crust is only 500 miles thick with an inner surface — and its inhabited! In Pellucidar, dinosaurs roam through jungles and saber-toothed tigers hunt mastodon and mammoth. A tiny sun, the molten core of the Earth, hangs in the center of the heavens, shedding perpetual daylight upon Pellucidar. Because the sun never sets, it is always “now” and there is no such thing as time. Stranger still, because Pellucidar rests on the inner side of the Earth’s crust, there is no horizon. The land curves upwards, as if you were standing on the inside of a gigantic bowl.

Humans dwell in Pellucidar — stone-age men and women who must fight to survive in this savage world. Even worse these humans have been made slaves of the Mahars, a race of intelligent but sinister reptiles who look upon humans as nothing more than beasts of burden or tasty snacks in one of their ghoulish ceremonies.

See the new strip…

Can David Innes and Abner Perry escape capture? Can they free humanity from the Mahar tyranny? And when David meets Dian the Beautiful who becomes his one true love, what struggles must he overcome before he can claim her as his own. And together, what adventures await them on Pellucidar?

Written by Chuck Dixon with years of experience in the graphic novel field and with Tom Lyle as the artist, this will be an entertaining addition to our Edgar Rice Burroughs Online Comic Strip complex. Just $1.99 per month. See free samples of all the strips and subscribe at .
