Reading Room: STORY OF OTHER WORLDS "Amazon of Barsoom"

The John Carter movie is in theaters now...
...so we're presenting the final never-reprinted Barsoom tale that ran in DC Comics' Tarzan Family in 1976!
This story from Tarzan Family #60 (1975) was written by Robert Kaniger and illustrated by Rudy Zamora.
The Heliumites in this tale are blue-skinned, not red (as in all other Barsoom stories), and the red "demon apes" who carry spears and talk have never appeared in any other Barsoom tale!
As we mentioned earlier, this story and the "Secret Diaries of John Carter" mini-series have never been reprinted since their publication in 1976, even in the recent Dark Horse trade paperback that presented all the other Barsoom-based stories that appeared in DC Comics!
(It's rumored that they were the reason ERB.Inc pulled the license from DC!)
