Wednesday Worlds of Wonder BEYOND THE FARTHEST STAR "Tangor Joins the Fight"

...ok, it's been five years between chapters, but we've been busy!
Just go with it...
Written by Burroughs in 1940 and published in 1942, the story is basically an updating of John Carter of Mars or Carson of Venus but set "present-day" and with no hope of return to Earth since his body was destroyed in the rocket explosion.
In addition, the world our hero ends up on is not the high-adventure fantasyland of Barsoom, but the planet Poloda, where a technologically-advanced version of the Cold War between America and the USSR (with elements of Nazism) in the 1950s is being waged!
(There's an excellent piece about history behind the story HERE.)
Adapted by Marv Wolfman and illustrated by the highly-underrated Dan Green, this never-reprinted chapter from Tarzan #214 (1972) takes considerable liberties with the original storyline.
Our previous Wednesday Worlds of Wonder series, Carson of Venus, received great viewing numbers, so we thought we'd go with another Edgar Rice Burroughs series that hasn't been reprinted.
The first chapter appeared HERE, so you haven't missed anything, True Believer!
