Jason Gridley and Victoria Harben Come to the Edgar Rice Burroughs Universe in 2020

You can find quite a few former contributors to Bleeding Cool working in comics at American Mythology Productions. Such as Mike Wolfer, working as both a writer and artist on the upcoming series for 2020, Carson of Venus: The Eye of Amtor #1.

In 2020, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. will be launching the Edgar Rice Burroughs Universe, an all-new series of interconnected novels by top sci-fi writers. But it all begins with comic books at American Mythology with a comics prequel series to the first ERB Universe novel, Matt Betts' Carson of Venus: The Edge of All Worlds.

In Carson of Venus: Eye of Amtor, by Mike Wolfer and Vincenzo Carratu, stranded Earthman Carson Napier fights against time and the planet Venus itself, tasked with gathering natural artifacts from across wild Amtor before a mad king executes his friends Ero Shan and Nalte. But Carson is not alone, as Princess Duare battles at his side against unearthly creatures and savage landscapes.

The comic will also contain a back-up strip running through all the titles, with   the adventures of scientist Jason Gridley and his mysterious protégé Victory Harben in the astounding Pellucidar: Dark of the Sun, a special, three-part, back-up story that launches the epic plotline that will run throughout the novels in the first ERBU "super-arc!"

And American Mythology has just shown off the cover featuring the introduction of two new characters to the Edgar Rice Burroughs Universe, Jason Gridley and Victoria Harben.

Carson of Venus Eye of Amtor #1 is available with three covers – Main below by Vincenzo Carratu, Variant above by Mike Wolfer, and a limited edition 1 in 350 Pulp cover, also by Carratu.
