Preview of Dynamite comic book Warlord of Mars #5

Comic Book Resources has a nice five-page preview of Warlord of Mars #5 (March 2011), the latest chapter in the new comic book adaptation by Dynamite Entertainment of beloved pulp author Edgar Rice Burroughs’ fantastical science fiction novel A Princess of Mars (1917).

John Carter finally arrives on Mars. A pack of bloodthirsty green Martians led by the fearsome Tars Tarkas shows up to welcome him. Tars and Carter might become great friends and allies – if they don't kill each other first!

Warlord of Mars #5 was written by Arvid Nelson and penciled & inked by Lui Antonio, with variant covers by artists Patrick Berkenkotter, Joe Jusko, Lucio Parrillo, and Stephen Sadowski. Note the cool Rockwellian aspect to the beautiful cover art by Joe Jusko, pictured above!


  1. Thanks so much for the kind words about the cover! I've been waiting years for just the right project to justify a Rockwell homage. It's my favorite cover and I'm really glad you like it, too!

  2. Joe: Thanks for taking the time to comment! And, thank you for all the wonderful Mars art over the years!
