GUESTS: 100 YEARS OF EDGAR RICE BURROUGHS ART WITH MICHAEL TIERNEY & STEPHEN CHENAULT

100 years of Edgar Rice Burroughs (Tarzan, Jon Carter of Mars) art in pulps, comics and novels with author and historian Michael Tierney and publisher Stephen Chenault of Troll Lord Games!

Edgar Rice Burroughs’ 100 Year Art Chronology on Kickstarter:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/600766964/edgar-rice-burroughs-100-year-art-chronology

We are producing the FOUR volume Edgar Rice Burroughs’ 100 Year Art Chronology, an illustrative history of all Burroughs’ publications in the United States (with a heavy dose of art from the United Kingdom). Written and compiled by Michael Tierney, the narrative gives the history of Burroughs’ work and the often legendary artists who visualized it, featuring untold stories, art that hasn’t been seen since its release, and pieces that were buried in the vaults from the beginning of his publishing history to the present day.

Officially licensed and sanctioned by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc., this nearly 1,200 page examination of the vast publishing illustrative history of Edgar Rice Burroughs is divided into four parts:

Volume 1: The Pulps The Dawn of the Age of Science Fiction
Volume 2: The Books Literature With Sharp Cutting Edges
Volume 3: Comics The Universal Language Part 1
Volume 4: Comics The Universal Language Part 2
