Preview: Dynamite comic book Warlord of Mars #8
Comic Book Resources has a five-page preview of Warlord of Mars #8 (May 2011), a recent chapter in the new comic book adaptation by Dynamite Entertainment of beloved pulp author Edgar Rice Burroughs’s fantastical science fiction novel A Princess of Mars.
Dejah Thoris has proclaimed her love for John Carter, but the despicable Warlord of Zodanga has forced her to promise she will marry the Zondangan prince. A Martian woman may not back out of such a pledge, and she may not marry her husband-to-be's killer. John Carter will need an army to change things now. If he can help Tars Tarkas seize control of the Tharks, he might have just that — but Zodanga's not going down without a fight!
Warlord of Mars #8 was written by Arvid Nelson, with interior artwork by Lui Antonio and variant covers by artists Joe Jusko, Lucio Parrillo, and Stephen Sadowski. That's John Carter and the lovely Dejah Thoris, as depicted by Stephen Sadowski, pictured above!
