The War Chief™ Comic Strip Relaunch

with a New Artist and Continuing with the Same Story and Writer 


The War Chief is a realistic, historical novel about life and death on an Apache reservation during the final days of the Apache Wars. Decades before the movie Dances with Wolves, Edgar Rice Burroughs’ great respect for the West and his compassion regarding the exploitive treatment of Native Americans at the hands of the pin-dah-lickoyee (white eyes) caused him to write a story that is an honest and sympathetic portrait of native life that does credit to both the Natives and Edgar Rice Burroughs.

In 1897, Mr. Burroughs lived among the Apaches while stationed at Fort Grant in Arizona where he served in the US Army. Burroughs penned this story in vivid, realistic detail about day-to-day life on the Apache reservation — an adventure of the Old West — written by one who saw it with his own eyes.

WRITER Martin Powell
Martin Powell has written hundreds of stories in numerous genres for Disney, Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, and Capstone Books, among others. Nominated for the prestigious Eisner Award for his work with Sherlock Holmes, Powell is the author of many of the most popular characters in the industry, including Superman, Batman, Popeye the Sailor, Dracula, Frankenstein, and Tarzan of the Apes.
Currently, as the author of almost a dozen different ERB online comic strips, and the critically acclaimed Jungle Tales of Tarzan graphic novel from Dark Horse, it is probable that Powell has written more Burroughs characters than any other contemporary writer.
