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.


  1. Wouldn't it also conflict with the Dark Horse series where Tarzan met John Carter? That would more definitely place this in an AU.

    1. Well, "John Bloodstone"'s TARZAN ON MARS also purported to be Tarzan and John Carter's first meeting, and Win regarded that claim as fictionalization in the original CROSSOVERS, so not necessarily.
