    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 wasn't aware of that. i'll def check it out. i had hoped that the movie coming out next year would spark interest in the books. more comics are always good too.

    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.

    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.

    The two stories you mention being unable to find are in fact what comprise the final book "John Carter of Mars."

    Dan O'Bannon's The Resurrected is quite a nice take on The Case Of Charles Dexter Ward.

    It goes without saying that I can hardly wait for Del Toro's adaptation of At The Mountains Of Madness....

    I'm not an ERB expert, but I think he actually wrote "Skeleton Men." It was only "Giant" that was written in part by his son. It's been years since I've read them, but, as I recall, "Skeleton Men" read just the other books.

    I wouldn't bother watching it on TV, it's very R with some nudity, gore, swearing, so it'd be heavily edited.
    I thought GDT's At The Mountains of Madness was no longer happening?
