Over 100 years ago when Edgar Rice Burroughs created his Mars novels starring John Carter, they made a major impact on twentieth century fantasy fiction. I read all of them in the late fifties and early sixties, and also the Burroughs-inspired novels of authors like Otis Adelbert Kline and Ralph Milne Farley.
Which brings us to An Earthman On Venus, written as a novel by Ralph Milne Farley in 1924 and published as The Radio Man. Avon adapted it to this one-shot comic, well illustrated by Wallace Wood, in 1951. They also released the novel under its new name as part of their paperback line.
Ralph Milne Farley was the pseudonym of Harvard educated lawyer, Roger Sherman Hoar, who wrote pulp novels when not publishing books under his own name, like The Tariff Manual or Unemployment Insurance in Wisconsin. In choosing what to read, I'd much prefer a far-flung space opera/fantasy over a book on unemployment insurance laws.
