Preview of comic book Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris #3

Comic Book Resources has a sweet five-page preview of Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris #3 (May 2011), the third issue in the new comic book series published by Dynamite Entertainment that chronicles what the lovely Martian princess Dejah Thoris was doing all those hundreds of years before John Carter arrived on Barsoom!

A horde of savage green Martians has surrounded the Warlord of Yorn in Dejah Thoris's city of Lesser Helium. No red Martian will come to the aid of a backstabbing tyrant like Yorn, but Yorn has a big surprise in store, one he paid a very high price for. While the siege rages on, Dejah Thoris fights to free her one-time enemy, the Jed of Greater Helium. Valian, Yorn's son, has thrown in his lot with Dejah. It's only a matter of time before his father finds out...

Based on the fantastical science fiction of beloved pulp author Edgar Rice Burroughs, Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris #3 was written by Arvid Nelson and drawn by Carlos Rafael, with variant covers by artists Arthur Adams (pictured above!), Ale Garza, Joe Jusko, and Paul Renaud.
