Preview of new comic book Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris #9
Comic Book Resources has a [CENSORED] five-page preview of Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris #9 (November 2011), the ninth issue in the new comic book series published by Dynamite Entertainment that chronicles what the lovely Martian princess Dejah Thoris was doing hundreds of years before John Carter arrived on Barsoom!
Dejah Thoris, Princess of Helium, and Phondari, Pirate Queen of Mars, are hot on the trail of the Hoard of Segotha, an ancient treasure lost thousands of years ago. Legends say the hoard contains something wondrous, something of inestimable worth unknown even to the greatest warlords of Mars. But these same legends also say the treasure is cursed. True or not, Phondari's old enemy, Xen Brega, is determined to kill her and Dejah and keep the hoard for himself. But never mind Brega — can Dejah really trust Phondari?
Based on the fantastical science fiction of beloved pulp author Edgar Rice Burroughs, Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris #9 was written by Arvid Nelson, with interior artwork by Carlos Rafael, and variant cover art by Ale Garza, Joe Jusko, and Paul Renaud.
