The Eternal Savage online comic strip, adapted from the Edgar Rice Burroughs novel, was completed on December 20, 2016. Now, for the first time ever, prolific writer Martin Powell is expanding the original storyline, supported by the visually appealing art of Toni Barber (see The War Chief comic strips #114-232).
In 1939 A.D. London, England, Victoria Custer – niece and namesake of her aunt, also Victoria Custer – has dreams upon dreams that place her in 100,000 B.C. Africa. What is causing these dreams that hound her each night with an intensity that sometimes stays with her and causes her to faint during the day? The answer may lie in Africa where a medical doctor, doubling as a witch doctor, hypnotizes Victoria in an attempt to discover the truth behind these dreams.
Journey with us as we return to The Eternal Savage with the Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. pioneering web comic strip program. You will be rewarded with an exciting return to 100,000 B.C. Africa – a very dangerous place, indeed!
