WEIRD WORLDS (1972) #1 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Weird Worlds #1
Premiere issue. Featuring the action-packed heroic stories of Edgar Rice Burroughs, creator of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes. Cover by Joe Kubert. Thrill to two fantastic stories of swords and science brought to you by the imagination of a legendary author. In our first story David Innes has drilled to the center of the Earth aboard Abner Perry's mechanical mole and found a prehistoric world filled with beauty and danger. Awed by their time-lost surroundings, Innes and Perry are easily overcome by blue-skinned ape men who drag them to "The Arena of Sudden Death!" (written by Len Wein and drawn by Al Weiss).

Then, read how Confederate Army officer John Carter was mysteriously transported to Mars, the red planet, where his Earthborn nature granted him amazing strength and speed. Through his skill with a sword, his bravery and his wits, Carter swiftly became a Warlord among the four-armed Tharks that ruled this barbaric planet. With the lovely Deja Thoris, "A Princess of Mars," at his side, Carter stands ready to conquer the entire planet! "Trial of Fear Chapter Four" is written by Marv Wolfman and drawn by Murphy Anderson. Special pin-up by Anderson. For a different look at John Carter, check out Marvel's version!
