Dynamite's Warlord of Mars comic line will hit the 100 issue milestone in April. To celebrate we are bringing you THREE stories by the THREE most prolific writers of recent Barsoomian history, each starring Barsoom's greatest calot: WOOLA! Beginning with a story by Robert (WARLORD OF MARS: DEJAH THORIS) Napton, taking place 400 years before John Carter's arrival on Barsoom, where a young Woola discovers an ancient First Born artifact that isn't quite what it seems. The story continues by Arvid (WARLORD OF MARS) Nelson only to have it recovered by the Warlord himself many years later. What happens to the good people of Helium as the evil power begins to be unleashed? And what could it mean for the rest of Barsoom? Then, in the final chapter by Mark (DEJAH THORIS AND THE GREEN MEN OF MARS) Rahner, Woola must do the hardest thing of his life: not protect John Carter. The fiercely loyal calot must resist his strongest instincts to save Carter from horrifying brutality - or pay an infinitely worse price. Includes bonus material!

My god, as a man I am offended at how revealing the men in this series dress. Damn it people, just because your a guy doesn't mean you should be objectified.

The art could be better in some places, but i'll still read it.

@captainmarvel4ever: I know right. Like we aren't people besides out bodies. This is just down right offensive, and I am sick of it.

A hundred issues! Is that all the John Carter titles combined?

I( got a lot of catching up to do with this series, but I'm up to date on Dejah Thoris's own book and Dejah Thoris and the Green Men of Mars (e.g. last issue was really good; can't wait for issue 12; wish they would have renewed it one more time).

I just can't take John Carter seriously dressed like that!

Not to draw any attention from the mostly naked red chick but Woola seems to be featured a lot on these covers.

@ostyo: Would you prefer him naked? That's how he was in the Burrough's books.

@bad_people: That's because Woola is awesome.

The funny part is that most female characters are drawn to look like they are as naked as Dejah here but then have the clothes drawn on which end up looking like body paint as opposed to how actual clothes would fit.

@nova_prime_: I was mocking how absurd Dejah is.

She was also naked in the original writing, in fact none of the Martians wore clothes. So yes she does look absurd.


I just wish the female characters looked as good in the actual pages of the story as they do on the covers.
