Crossover Covers: Lords of Mars
The jungle lord and and his wife are transported to Mars, where Lord Greystoke is manipulated by one of the planet’s many sentient races into battling the planet’s warlord. Events from the comic book series Lord of the Jungle and Warlord of Mars, which only loosely follow the events of Burroughs’ books, are mentioned. Also, the jungle lord is uncharacteristically naïve here, accepting a Martian ruler’s claim the warlord is evil with little evidence, apparently because he feels he fits in more on Mars than on Earth. Therefore, I consider this series an AU.
