    Fast-Action Story #nn John Carter of Mars (Dell, 1940) Condition: FN+. Here is one of the few successes that Edgar Rice Burroughs had in marketing John Carter. Famed for his creation of Tarzan, many avid Edgar Rice Burroughs collectors believe John Carter to be the greatest of all adventure heroes. An attempt to syndicate the character during the early 1940s was a modest success -- only a handful of newspapers carried the strip, which was produced for just over a year, while Dell Comics, The Funnies, featured the Martian legend for several years. The Fast-Action Story volume offered here is an excellent one -- binding is tight and covers show only the very lightest wear. While interior stock shows usual aging, there is no chipping or flaking. A superior copy of the most difficult Fast Action title to find. Overstreet 2005 FN value = $225. From the Larry Jacobs Collection.
