    • why not just adapt the story of another jungle savage, instead of crapping alll over the creations of edgar rice burroughs?

      I am not even really a fan of tarzan but

      it just seems odd that you guys would make this series

      please contact angelic pictures and ask them if you can do a pirates of venus prequal comic for their upcoming film

      since tehy are making essentialyl a john carter cash in, why not be their marvel!

      Make comics to help promote their movie!!!

            I believe the character can still be called Tarzan. It is just the series that cannot.

            That said, Nazrat is pretty cool.

              Thought you folks might enjoy Garrison James' new Pulp Magnet column over at www.newpulpfiction.com on none other than the Princess of Mars.

              • There may be some trademark issues with the name Nazrat. There was a character named Nazrat published by a few small companies that were acquired/merged with Malibu and Malibu was eventually gobbled up by Marvel.

                • Just like Captain Marvel in "SHAZAM!" and John Carter in "Warlord of Mars." The character can be called Tarzan inside the book, you just can't put the name on the cover.

                  Nazrat sounds like a great name for a Bizarro-Tarzan.

                    Burroughs' Venus series is entirely under copyright. Anyone doing anything with those characters has to have license from the Burroughs Estate. After "Warlord of Mars" and now "Lord of the Jungle," it's not likely Dynamite would get any license from the Burroughs people. Of course, there are still other non-John Carter, non-Tarzan ERB books in the public domain that they would be free to tackle. Here are the PD Burroughs works I was able to find (I included John Carter and Tarzan just because):

                    John Carter of Mars series (5 of 11) -
                    1. A Princess of Mars (1912)

                    3. The Warlord of Mars (1918)
                    4. Thuvia, Maid of Mars (1920)
                    5. The Chessmen of Mars (1922)

                    Tarzan series (8 of 26) -
                    1. Tarzan of the Apes (1912)
                    2. The Return of Tarzan (1913)
                    3. The Beasts of Tarzan (1914)
                    4. The Son of Tarzan (1914)
                    5. Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar (1916)
                    6. Jungle Tales of Tarzan (1916, 1917)
                    7. Tarzan the Untamed (1919, 1921)
                    8. Tarzan the Terrible (1921)

                    Pellucidar series (2 of 7) -

                      Lol...he'd wear a suit, carry a briefcase and his faithful sidekick would be a chihuahua...

                          • I'm curious how faithful this adaptation will be, especially at the beginning. Remember, Burroughs took 2 chapters to get John Carter to Mars. Dynamite got him there in issue #3. In the original novel, Tarzan doesn't even get adopted by the apes until chapter 4. Too faithful of an adaptation will give people who want to check out "Lord of the Jungle" #1 for $1.00 an issue with no Tarzan and no jungle.

                              • And now...Tarzan

                                Cannot believe nobody in the board has mentioned this. Written by no less than our own Arvid Nelson (so you know this is going to be a faithful version to the paperback character). Me, I'm really excited about this but worried at the same time that Dynamite is forcing me to expand my comic book budget, just too many darn good books!
