One Good Thing And One Bad Thing About Warlord of Mars #3

BAD THING: The covers. Great Kirby's Ghost, the covers! I know given the setting and the genre there's going to be some degree of cheesecake in the artwork. But this is just gratuitous. Particularly since said warrior princess character hasn't shown up in the book yet!

GOOD THING: Once you're past the cover, you're in for a real treat in terms of story and artwork. And hey - equal opportunity exploitation - John Carter spends most of this issue naked and there's many a shot of his muscular backside for the ladies and gay men to drool over, should they be so inclined.

The Final Verdict: Great book. Bad covers. Nuff said!


  1. This book sure seems to be coming out rapid fire style. I really want to read it, but I am at critical mass with my books again and need to scale back.

  2. It is a good one, but I suspect it may read better as a trade-paperback.
