Tarzan

Splash page!

Here’s the title page from my story in the upcoming JUNGLE TALES OF TARZAN graphic novel, coming in 2014 from Sequential Pulp Comics, a graphic novel imprint distributed by Dark Horse Comics.

The 144 page graphic novel is authorized by ERB, Inc. and is an anthology collecting the twelve loosely connected short stories written by Edgar Rice Burroughs chronicling the life of his most famous character, Tarzan of the Apes, and is written by Martin Powell, who is well known for his work as the author of hundreds of science fiction, mystery, horror stories and has worked in the comic book industry since 1986, writing for Marvel, DC, Malibu, Caliber, Moonstone, and Disney, among others.

Each 12 page, full color story has been matched up with an artist whose passion and love for Burroughs’ Tarzan and specifically for the story selected will go a long way towards making this one highly anticipated book in the Tarzan canon.

Lost World 1

Since I’m working on a graphic novel based on Dick Briefer’s version of Frankenstein from the 1950s, I’ve been researching Briefer’s Frankenstein comics.   I came upon an entertaining tale called “World of Monsters” from Frankenstein #21, 1952.  In this story, Frankie stumbles across a “lost world” atop a plateau in “arid” Arizona, complete with dinosaurs and jungle girls, and that was the inspiration for the 2 pieces presented here.
