From a fanboy’s perspective, Edgar Rice Burroughs, the author and creator of John Carter of Mars and Tarzan of the Apes, is arguably the greatest writer of all time. On second thought, there is no argument — his stories have launched the imaginations and fantasies of untold thousands of artists, writers, scientists, engineers and dreamers. Almost every genre comic, movie and TV show in the past 100 years was in some way influenced by this man’s work.
If you’re a fan, you have an awesome opportunity to help fund a documentary film about the life of ERB, and capture some very nice swag in the process! Go to The Life and Mind of Edgar Rice Burroughs on Kickstarter and make a donation to get this incredibly cool project off the ground. Even if you can’t donate, the Kickstarter promotional pitch video for the ERB film is still worth a look.
