Preview of comic book Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris #4
Comic Book Resources has an enticing five-page preview of Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris #4 (June 2011), the third issue in the new comic book series published by Dynamite Entertainment that chronicles what the lovely Martian princess Dejah Thoris was doing all those hundreds of years before John Carter arrived on Barsoom!
Dejah Thoris has united all the red Martians nations against the Jeddak of Yorn, but they are no match for him in his living tomb, the terrible War Colossus. Dejah must turn to Yorn's son, the only one who knows the Colossus's weakness. Exploiting the weakness will require a miracle of Martian engineering, and it just so happens that Yorn's son is a genius, the likes of which Mars has not seen for over a thousand years! All is not well, however: there is a traitor among Dejah's allies...
Based on the fantastical science fiction of beloved pulp author Edgar Rice Burroughs, Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris #4 was written by Arvid Nelson, drawn by Carlos Rafael, colored by Carlos Lopez, with variant cover art by Arthur Adams (pictured above!), Ale Garza, Joe Jusko, and Paul Renaud.
