The Unofficial and Unauthorised Guide to 100 Years of Tarzan 
by Sean Egan
More on this comprehensive book at ERBzine 3739
In October 1912, readers of The All-Story magazine were enthralled by Edgar Rice Burroughs' tale of John Clayton, an orphaned English lord given a simian upbringing in the African jungle who went on to reclaim his birth-right in civilisation while maintaining one foot in the savage land he had conquered. The character went on to appear in more than two dozen sequels by Burroughs as well as many adaptations.

This book traces Tarzan's history in prose, film, comic strips, comic books, radio, stage, television, computer games and merchandise, charting the rise of one of the most popular and iconic characters in fiction. Included is the last ever interview with Danton Burroughs (grandson of Edgar Rice Burroughs), plus exclusive comments from Michael Moorcock, Hugh Hudson, R A Salvatore and the oldest surviving screen Tarzan, Denny Miller, amongst many more. The book also examines the massive changes in public attitudes towards Africa, race, hereditary peers and wildlife conservation that may finally deal Tarzan the fatal blow that any number of sinister safaris and high priests of mysterious lost cities failed to. A comprehensive exploration of one of the most famous icons of the last hundred years.

Their journey across Africa reveals danger at every turn, but nothing to match the shock of finding Dan-El's home enslaved by an evil witch doctor. With only each other to fall back on, can the brothers of the spear survive battle, exile, shipwreck, and more to overthrow the usurper so Dan-El can take his rightful place as king?

“John Carter’ the movie hit theaters March 9th, but that won’t be the only medium in which we’ll see the character this year. 

First, a little history for those who might not be familiar with John Carter.  The character first appeared in novels by Edgar Rice Burroughs beginning in 1912.  A former Confederate Captain, Carter appears to die and is mysteriously transported to Mars, where he is thrust into the middle of a battle between evil forces.  The novels were highly successful, and the character so compelling that Carter ended up being in other stories throughout the years.  From his own comic strips to comic books, Carter kept popping up throughout the decades following his initial appearance in the Burroughs novels.  The character has also been in various TV shows and films, as well as Alan Moore’s “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.”

And now Marvel is bringing John Carter back to the comic book genre with this new series.  Created by Sam Humphries (Sacrifice) & Ramon Perez (Jim Henson’s Tale of Sand), the story centers on Carter returning to Mars to save the planet from Martian gods.  The comic book was produced in collaboration with the Edgar Rice Burroughs estate.

Jane Carver of Waar
By Nathan Long
Night Shade Books, 312 pp., $14.99

Nathan Long's devilishly entertaining homage to Edgar Rice Burroughs gets the updating right. "Jane Carver of Waar" features airships and romance and savage four-armed warriors, but in the John Carter role it has Jane Carver, a sword-swinging biker chick swashed in leather and buckled in a bronze bra. Burroughs' prose is vigorously updated, with flowers "the electric pink of a hooker's hot pants" and food "that tasted like the paste I wasn't supposed to eat in kindergarten." Long also includes more explicit sex and violence than Burroughs dared consider. Still and all, I think the old guy would have approved.

The Tarzan Novels of Edgar Rice Burroughs:
An Illustrated Reader's Guide 
By David A. Ullery 
Those who recognize that the original Tarzan is a literary creation of Edgar Rice Burroughs understand that the exploits of Tarzan are best explored through the magical medium of the printed word. Readers can experience a journey that lasts through 24 books and wanders not only into the jungle depths but farther down through the Earth's crust into the savage prehistoric land of Pellucidar. Also covered is the long out of print The Tarzan Twins as well as the recent Tarzan, the Lost Adventure and The Eternal Savage. This book serves as a literary guide to all the Tarzan novels. 
Section One provides an overview of Tarzan the character, including a list of the many names and titles used by and given to Tarzan; 
Section Two covers the mythical language used in the novels, including a dictionary of the ape language; 
Section Three enumerates the lost cities, civilizations, tribes, peoples and religions discovered by Tarzan, detailing their religious rites and locations; 
Section Four describes the characters (human and otherwise) found in the novels; 
Section Five gives summaries of all 24 books that comprise the Burroughs canon. 
The book also includes over thirty illustrations from the series' various printings.

Dynamite is still churning out unauthorized editions oblivious to law suits.

Joe Kubert is one of the most lauded artists in the history of comics, a true living legend. He has been a vital creative force since the 1940s and remains so to this day. He has had defining runs on Hawkman, Enemy Ace, Tor, Sgt. Rock, and many others. Among his career highlights is Tarzan of the Apes, and Kubert’s rendition could arguably be called the definitive comic adaptation of the Ape-man. “To have the Tarzan stories I drew commemorate the 100th anniversary of a strip I fell in love with as a kid is the thrill of a lifetime,” said Joe Kubert, writer and artist of all the stories in this Artist’s Edition. This Artist’s Edition collects six complete Kubert Tarzan adventures, including the classic four-part origin story. Each page is vividly reproduced from the original art and presented as no comics readers have seen before. For fans of Kubert and Tarzan, this new entry in the Eisner-winning Artist’s Edition line must be seen to be believed!

THE APE MAN'S BROTHER by Joe R. Lansdale
Orphaned by a plane crash, raised in the wilds of a lost world hidden somewhere beneath a constant mist, The Big Guy and his ape-man brother from another mother are living a life of danger amongst rampaging dinosaurs, giant birds, warring ape tribes, and all manner of deadly beasts. It’s a wonderful existence for someone like The Big Guy and his furry brother, except for the flea problem. Then an expedition of explorers from the outside turn his world inside out. Or rather a very blonde beauty called The Woman does. It leads to his and his ape brother being convinced to fly to New York by zeppelin, where they become the toast of the town. They even make Hollywood movies. It seems perfect. At least until The Big Guy does something that comes quite naturally to him in the wild, but leads to public humiliation in this new found world. To make matters worse, his ape brother has grown to not only love the pampered life, meals he doesn’t have to chase down, good cigars, fine wines and statuesque women, he’s come to like the Wrong Woman. Changes are afoot. They lead to a return to the world beneath the mist, and a deadly and unexpected encounter with a foe that is in many ways far worse than any dinosaur. Envy, jealousy, greed, fleas, and pyramids under the mist, are all part of this rollicking novella of the sort only Joe R. Lansdale could write. And don’t forget dinosaurs.

Korak, Son of Tarzan Archives

In the first of two volumes collecting Manning's complete run on the series, Tarzan and Jane's son, Boy, takes the name Korak - in the language of the apes, "The Killer" - alongside his chimpanzee sidekick Pahkut, and begins to carve out his own legend among the creatures of Africa.
