The ERB DUM DUM 2013 in Louisville, Ky!

In celebration of the birthday of the Master of Adventure, the one and only Edgar Rice Burroughs (September 1, 1875– March 19, 1950), I've decided to post this little journal of highlights from the recent ERB DUM DUM 2013, where I was a guest speaker, held in Louisville, Ky.



Well, Dum Dum 2013 is over. I would like to thank everyone who made me feel so very welcome.  Best. Weekend. Ever.

With Linda Burroughs and her daughters, Jane and Dejah (they are the great granddaughters of Edgar Rice Burroughs).  I got to spend a lot more time with these elegant ladies than from our brief, blurry moments together at the San Diego Comic Con, which included lunch, dinner, and a hilarious adventure antique shopping in downtown Louisville.  In Dejah's words, "Martin you're just like one of the family!"  And, indeed, they certainly make me feel like I am.  That means more to me than I can say. 



  With the lovely prolific author, and future collaborator, Leia Barrett-Durham, who took time out of her very busy schedule to accompany me.




 Among the many remarkable folks at DUM DUM 2013 was primate expert/adventurer Lane Batot. He's accompanied Dr. Jane Goodall in her research, living among the great apes, and is as close to a real-life Tarzan as I will ever experience. An amazing guy.


 It was a tremendous thrill to meet my hero, world-famous paleontologist and fellow Edgar Rice Burroughs fan, Phil Currie. When I introduced myself to him, I nearly fell backwards when he said, "Oh, I know who you are, Martin." This shot was taken after the banquet when he'd received his special ERB Lifetime Achievement Award (which he was positively giddy about). I can hardly describe what it was like sitting next to him during dinner, talking dinosaurs. A genuine highlight of my life. And, yes, he really is that tall.




Saturday morning during my presentation "ERB Comic Strip Script Writing ", which was the most purely enjoyable hour I've ever spent before an audience.  The mutual enthusiasm and love I felt from the ERB fans calmed my jitters immediately and I felt at home within seconds.  A wonderful experience.




My discussion was concluded with a  new video created by artist, Diana Leto, discussing our collaboration behind ERB's THE CAVE GIRL, our new romantic comedy/adventure digital comic strip .  Check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfTb_byn5dc


My pal, famed TARZAN artist, Tom Yeates.




With Edgar Rice Burroughs collector extraordinaire, and truly impressive gentleman, Ray Le Beau.



ERB scholar, collector, and host of the Dum Dum, the legendary George McWhorter and his charming associate , Delinda Buie.


George opened Dum Dum 2013 with his traditional Tarzan yell.


From the Banquet.






 It was fantastic finally getting to meet Bill Hillman and Sue-On Hillman of ERBzine, after all the support they've giving my various ERB projects. Sue-On and Bill keep the legacy of Edgar Rice Burroughs alive on the internet, and are two of the nicest, most accomplished folks I've ever encountered.


 Needless to say, my own ERB collection grew a bit after the DUM DUM. 
Looking forward to next year!
KREE-GAH!!
