Comic book review: Warlord of Mars #2 (2010)

JCOM Reader, a blog devoted to news from Barsoom, Mongo and other planets, has a nice review of Warlord of Mars #2 (November 2010), Dynamite Entertainment’s new comic book adaptation and expansion of beloved pulp author Edgar Rice Burroughs’ fantastical science fiction novel A Princess of Mars (1917), concluding, “So in the end this issue is a vast improvement over the first issue. The only complaint-again Dejah Thoris gets prominent placement on most of the covers [...] even though she's nowhere to be seen. She better be one hot Martian babe when she shows up!”

Written by Arvid Nelson and illustrated by Stephen Sadowski, Warlord of Mars #2 has four variant covers by artists Patrick Berkenkotter, Joe Jusko, Lucio Parrillo, and J. Scott Campbell. The Campbell cover is pictured here.
