Preview of new comic book Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris #6

Comic Book Resources has a salacious five-page preview of Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris #6 (August 2011), the sixth 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!

Greater and Lesser Helium are united behind Dejah Thoris. But just when things seem to be getting back to normal, Helium's precious supply of water begins running dry. Dejah heads to the Antarctic ice caps to investigate, only to find herself pulled into the deadly mysteries of the forbidden south. A swashbuckling adventure of sky pirates, renegade princesses, lost treasure and ancient curses begins in Dejah Thoris #6: The Bird on the Coin, the first installment of Pirate Queen of Mars!

Based on the fantastical science fiction of beloved pulp author Edgar Rice Burroughs, Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris #6 was written by Arvid Nelson, drawn by Carlos Rafael, colored by Carlos Lopez, with variant cover art by Alé Garza (risqué nude Dejah Thoris pictured above!), Joe Jusko, and Paul Renaud.
