Bill Willingham (Fables) is teaming up with artist Cezar Rezak (Warlord of Mars) for an all-new limited series featuring the Edgar Rice Burroughs characters of Tarzan, Korak, John Carter and Dejah Thoris. The Greatest Adventure is a planet-hopping series that starts when a crash landing reveals a secret plot by a mysterious cabal of scientists to weaponize Jason Gridley’s famous wave, turning it into a disintegration ray that can bypass distance, on a galactic scale, to destroy a single person, or even an entire world at a time. Gridley seeks the help of Tarzan and Jane to stop these villainous adventurers from finding the final piece needed to fulfill their devious end. When Tarzan puts the word out to assemble a crew to man Jason Gridley’s Martian Flying Ship, the galaxy’s greatest fighters and adventurers come together to stop this evil plan.
“Here we are with my chance, at long last, to play in the very fields that Burroughs created, and to marry my two loves of comic book and prose fiction in doing it,” says Bill Willingham. “One comic series couldn’t possibly contain everything I’ve loved and discovered in his books. The Greatest Adventure contains everything I love that I could fit into a single series, including his most popular characters, as well as many obscure ones, which are nevertheless beloved to me.”
The Greatest Adventure will premier from Dynamite Entertainment in 2017, with further details to be announced in the coming months.
