Comic book review round-up: Warlord of Mars #6

Warlord of Mars, the new comic book series adaptation by Dynamite Entertainment of beloved pulp author Edgar Rice Burroughs’ fantastical science fiction novel A Princess of Mars (1917), continues to generate interest among both ERB and comic book fans. Here are some snippets from various reviews of a recent issue, Warlord of Mars #6 (March 2011), which was written by Arvid Nelson with interior artwork by Lui Antonio and variant covers by artists Patrick Berkenkotter, Joe Jusko, Lucio Parrillo, and Stephen Sadowski:

1) Weekly Comic Book Review: “Conclusion: Why the hell aren’t you reading Warlord of Mars? Pick it up now. This is classic sword and planet adventure, with really high-end production values. Grade: A-”

2) JCOM Reader: “Again sounding like a stuck record, issue 6 is another strong issue for the series.”

3) Comic Book Resources: “As always with this, I can’t really recommend Warlord of Mars, because it’s not all that good, but I do enjoy watching the adventure unfold. Rating: 5 stars out of 10.”
