Sull'Autore

Edgar Rice Burroughs was born on September 1, 1875, in Chicago. His father, George Tyler was a distiller and a battery manufacturer. Early in life Burroughs attempted to support his family in a variety of occupations, including railroad policeman, business partner, and miner. None of these proved mostra altro successful. However, Burroughs had always enjoyed reading adventure fiction and decided to try his hand at writing. His first attempt, written under the pseudonym Normal Bean, sold very quickly and Burroughs' career took off. Although critics and educators have not always been supportive of Burroughs' writing, the characters in his stories have entertained readers for many years. Tarzan was the most popular, earning Burroughs enough money to start his own publishing house and a motion picture company. Another character, John Carter, is the hero of Burroughs' Mars adventure series. The continuing popularity of these characters has led some critics to reconsider the value of Burroughs' writing and to acknowledge significant themes in his stories. Burroughs died on March 19, 1950. (Bowker Author Biography) mostra meno

Breve biografia
Edgar Rice Burroughs (September 1, 1875 – March 19, 1950) was an American speculative fiction writer, best known for his prolific output in the adventure, science fiction and fantasy genres. Among his most well-known creations include Tarzan of the Apes, John Carter of Mars (Barsoom series), and Carson Napier of Venus (Amtor series).

He is also known for the hollow Earth-themed Pellucidar series, beginning with At the Earth's Core (1914); and the lost world-themed Caspak trilogy, beginning with The Land that Time Forgot (1918).

Burroughs' California ranch is now the center of the Tarzana neighborhood in Los Angeles

Recensioni

Il ragazzo cresciuto nella foresta ed allevato dai gorilli non poteva che trovare fortuna nel fumetto, come nel cinema, di animazione e non. E giustamente in questa collana trova spazio un numero dedicato a Tarzan, grande successo editoriale che inizia a metà degli anni sessanta. Seguendo un ordine logico, oltre che cronologico, i curatori di questo numero scelgono storie di Hal Foster, di Russell George Manning e di Loe Kubert, tre dei principali autori che nel corso degli anni si sono occupati di Tarzan nella versione a fumetti. Tre storie, l’infanzia di Tarzan, la terra dei giganti e Avventure a Pal-ul-don, l’ultima lunghissima. Cè da dire che il Tarzan classico, la storia del ragazzo, rimangono quelle più avvincenti, è un fenomeno tipico dei fumetti che nascono dai libri; le divagazioni trasformano il carattere, facendo spesso perdere il riferimento al carattere originale del personaggio. Comunque, Tarzan è Tarzan.

Recensione del 2 dicembre 2009
La storia di Tarzan rimane affascinante. Sono belli i film, è bello il cartone, è bello il fumetto. Peccato mortale il mio, non ho mail letto il libro di Burroughs. Sono un italiota, anche mi. Mica per caso. Il fumetto, parliamo di lui. Gli albi comprati in edicola, a cicli, non mi hanno mai convinto. Ma ora, finalmente, ne ho compreso la ragione. La storia di base è straordinaria anche nella proposta a fumetti di Foster, Hogart e Manning. Il bambino abbandonato nella giungla e cresciuto da una femmina di gorilla, l’amore con la figlia di un esploratore, gli ingredienti sono straordinari ed anche con il fumetto si sogna e si sogna alto. Nella seconda parte c’è il Tarzan tipico degli albetti, storie scollegate dal libro ed allora è necessario conoscere, sapere di cosa si parla, entrare nel merito delle storie della giungla. Rimane appassionante, ma occorre, come detto, un approccio del tutto diverso. Comunque, molto bello.
