i've been reading the Warlord of Mars comics from Dynamite. there is also a Dejah Thoris series that is pretty good and takes place before John Carter arrives on Mars/Barsoom.

I'm actually about to read all three of these authors in the near future. And of you're referring the John Carter, it's now just John Carter, no reference to Mars for some reason (I don't know if they think it will scare people away or confuse them, but for some they got rid of Mars in the title) is actually going to be live action with CGI effects.

Anyone seen the Call of Cthlhu movie? Done in the style of a silent movie contemporary to when it was written, really really good.

It's on my Netflix Instant Watch queue.
What about Dagon? I just watched that a couple weeks ago and thought it was pretty cool except the whole incest ending kinda creeped me out. It was my first exposure the HP Lovecraft styled stuff and based on it, I plan on checking out more of his stuff.

I liked Dagon, it was one of the better films for keeping a Lovecraft feel to things. All in all a fun reworking of the 'Shadow over Innsmouth.'

Imagine if it had been released back then, in the '20s! It would have been nuts!

Loved Burroughs as a kid/teenager. Read all of his Tarzan/John Carter/Carson Napier series, most of the Pellucidar books and collected the 60s/70s DC Tarzan comics as well as the late seventies Marvel Tarzan and John Carter comics. Even found a few JCs from around 1963/64.

I've always wanted to write a remake of At The Earth's Core. And maybe a cheesy movie version of Beyond 30...

Re: Robert e Howard,Edgar rice Burroughs & H.P.lovecraft comics & book

this is one of my favorite series by burroughs and here is my reading list for john carter of mars:


a Princess of mars
the gods of mars
the warlord of mars
Thuvia maid of mars
The chessmen of mars
The master mind of mars
a fighting man of mars
sword of mars
synthetic men of mars
LIana of gathol
John carter of mars

and here are two that were written by his son

john carter and the giant of mars
skeleton men of Jupiter

now last two I have never read and are the hardest to find and I am hoping soon
that all the books will be in e form.

Never got into ERB. I had the first 4 Tarzans in a late 70s reissue, they were good, but not enough for me to pursue seeking out others.

The Mars series never seemed to have a consistent release pattern in Australia when they were reissued, you couldn't get them in sequence, and I, as a teenage purist, lost interest in trying to get them.

I'll have to look up this Dagon movie you're talking about.
