Looks like ERB INC is finally putting the hammer down on Dynamite's unauthorized use the Burrourghs characters.
Without getting into the merits of the case, I found this amusing.
Presumably to bolster its claim of "irreparable injury," ERB Inc. takes specific issue with some of the covers and interior art for "Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris," insisting they "border on (and in some cases are) pornographic": "On some covers -- covers which defendants refer to as "Risque Nude" exclusive covers -- Dejah Thoris appears topless."
Have they even read these books? The characters run around naked on Mars all the time.
I missed that when I skimmed the story on one of the comic news sites, it's kinda funny if you ask me.
