Preview of new comic book Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris #5
Comic Book Resources has a seductive five-page preview of Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris #5 (July 2011), the fifth 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!
The Mars-shattering conclusion of Colossus of Mars! Dejah Thoris has rallied the free Martian kingdoms to fight the Jeddak of Yorn, who has merged body and mind with a horrific war colossus of the ancients. If Dejah and her allies can't stop Yorn, he will complete his bloody holocaust of the green Martian hordes. All hope lies in Yorn's son, Valian, who has joined the rebels. His knowledge of the inner workings of the Colossus are the only chance they have of smashing Yorn. But Yorn has a spy among the allies... An epic duel in the skies and the emergence of an unexpected hero await you in Dejah Thoris #5: Colossus of Mars, part 5 of 5!
Based on the fantastical science fiction of beloved pulp author Edgar Rice Burroughs, Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris #5 was written by Arvid Nelson, drawn by Carlos Rafael, colored by Carlos Lopez, with variant cover art by Arthur Adams, Ale Garza, Joe Jusko, and Paul Renaud (pictured above!).
