One of the projects I've been working on over the last couple of years is putting together a digital collection of the John Carter of Mars strip that ran in The Funnies #30-56 from 1939-1941. Many of these issues are incredibly tough to find so it has been a challenge, but also a lot of fun. So with the John Carter Movie coming out in two months I thought it would be fun to share these scans. I'll post a couple of pages every day for the next few weeks as the movie approaches. Enjoy!

Special thanks to Bob (Dell4C) who provided some of the scans for this project and Rich (Yellowkid) who donated an issue to the cause.

Thanks for posting Jeff. The story is very true to the book so far. I guess they just couldn't resist giving the Tharks some knowledge of English. :lol:

Is there a site that lists all ERB character appearances in comics?

With this next issue, ERB's son John Coleman Burroughs took over the strip for the remainder of the run.
