Preview: New comic book Warlord of Mars: Fall of Barsoom #3
Comic Book Resources has a nice five-page preview of Warlord of Mars: Fall of Barsoom #3 (September 2011), the third issue in a new comic book series published by Dynamite Entertainment that tells a tale of ancient Mars, chronicling events on Barsoom tens of thousands of years before the arrival of John Carter.
General Van Tun Bor leads the survivors of Thark on a perilous exodus across the Red desert. The once proud race of Orovars are reduced to the survival of the fittest as the tide of barbarism begins to sweep across the face of Barsoom. At the Atmosphere Plant, Scientist Tak Nan Lee and the Red Martian Anouk face unexpected danger from Anouk's own people! The tale of Barsoom set 100,000 years before the time of John Carter continues!
Based on the fantastical science fiction world created by beloved pulp author Edgar Rice Burroughs, Warlord of Mars: Fall of Barsoom #3 was written by Robert Place Napton and penciled & inked by Roberto Castro, with variant cover art by Francesco Francavilla and Joe Jusko (pictured above!).
