UPDATE FROM(May 8, 2015 – Tarzana, CA) As of episode #31 our Jungle Girl feature will be drawn by War Chief's own Nik Poliwko. Our current art team of Will and Jo Meugniot have decided to actively pursue their retirement and realized having a regular weekly assignment was interfering with their travel plans. Per Will, "Drawing Jungle Girl for the great people at ERB was a dream come true, but I've been concerned that I couldn't continue delivering the strip at its current quality and find time for the outside pursuits I've wanted to take up in retirement. It's been a relief that Nik, who is one of my favorite Burroughs artists, is willing to pick up the reins. As a fan of Martin's writing and Nik's visual storytelling, I look forward to seeing what comes next in the lives of Gordon and Fou-Tan, and trust you'll all join me in my enjoyment of the continuing adventures of Edgar Rice Burroughs' Jungle Girl."
Change is coming to the Jungle!
They will be missed! We are excited to continue this wonderful story with Martin Powell, writing, and Nik Poliwko as our artist. Nik is the current artist for The War Chief and also the Editor or our special FB page for ERB web comics www.facebook.com/groups/ERB.Online.Strips/

Mad Man: A New Biography of Harvey Kurtzman
Seattle News ~ May 5, 2015
"Maybe Mad is like the movie John Carter—based on Edgar Rice Burroughs’ John Carter of Mars. Just hear me out:
It was so widely influential, over so many decades, and so copied and appropriated, that the original doesn’t turn heads anymore."
Kurtzman wrote numerous Tarzan parodies in MAD:

Robert R. Barrett Entry in our Facebook Group"I'm sure that many of the fans of Edgar Rice Burroughs would like to read all of his stories that remain unpublished. Sadly many of these stories were written decades ago and are now dated and a publisher would be difficult to find any interest in them. Several of them were eventually published in FORGOTTEN TALES OF LOVE AND MURDER, Guidry & Adkins, 2001. But others remain unpublished -- maybe never to be published. In 1998 Danton Burroughs asked me to read all of ERB's unpublished stories and tell him what I thought of them. The result of this reading, if any care to know, was written in my article, "The Surprise in the Safe: Edgar Rice Burroughs' Unpublished Stores," ERBANIA #79, Fall 1998. Of all of these stories the one that intrigued me the most was the unfinished "The Ghostly Script," written in 1930. After several pages (7,123 words) Burroughs ended up being stumped as to where to take the story. I enjoyed what he had written and wanted to read more -- but his typewriter never spoke to him again to finish the story. Danton and I discussed this incomplete story several times and I finally convinced him to allow Philip Jose Farmer to try his hand at completing it. I discussed it with Phil and he agreed to read what had been written and give his thoughts about completing it, eventually deciding that he could do the job. But due to other commitments and ill health Phil was unable to do the job and then both Phil and Danton passed away -- so the story will probably never be finished."
Before Danton Burroughs' untimely death we spent many hours discussing all things Burroughs.
Some of ERB's unpublished and unfinished scripts were written out in longhand.
Dan shared copies of these gems which included The Ghostly Script
and a Tarzan short story similar to those found in Jungle Tales of Tarzan.
I converted these longhand scripts to typed e-text which I relayed back to Tarzana.
Danton had hoped to interest a number of writers in finishing these scripts.
There were a few attempts by writers,
but Dan passed away before any of these projects could be followed up on.

5 Movies that really deserve a Sequel:"Movies are sometimes a one-hit wonder but there are a few great movies that deserve a sequel because fans came to love the characters and are asking for more.
Inception, John Carter, American Sniper, The Godfather leads the list
May 7, 2015 ~ VCPost.com
The next movie that deserves a sequel is "John Carter" which was about this earthling who was able to go to Mars and became a hero. However, it was one of the biggest flops in the Hollywood industry as an estimated amount of $250 million went into the production but the movie only garnered $280 million when it was released in 2012. Weirdly, fans are asking for more as a press release six months ago cited that they are looking for another studio to produce a sequel of the filml. John Carter 2 might actually be a big thing in the future. . ." ~ More
