Preview of new comic book Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris #7

Comic Book Resources has an enticing five-page preview of Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris #7 (September 2011), the seventh 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!

Pirate Queen of Mars, part 2! Dejah Thoris's kingdom of Helium is in tatters, and, even worse, it's running out of water. Water is worth more than all the gold and jewels on Mars... except for the fabled treasure Phondari, the Pirate Queen of Mars, is hunting for. The treasure is just the thing Dejah needs to kick-start the reconstruction of Helium, But Phondari has attracted the attention of Xen Brega, her old master. Both Xen and Phondari are black pirates from the further moon of Mars. No one on Mars has a worse reputation than the moon pirates, and Dejah's going to find out why first hand in Dejah Thoris #7: The Sunstealer -- don't miss it!

Based on the fantastical science fiction of beloved pulp author Edgar Rice Burroughs, Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris #7 was written by Arvid Nelson, with interior artwork by Carlos Rafael, and variant cover art by Alé Garza, Joe Jusko, and Paul Renaud (pictured above!).

  1. The cover art of 'Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris' is always a visual feast.
    What intrigues me is the concept of 'variant cover art': with or without bras, according to the place the comic book is to be sold :) ?
