It ain't easy being green! With John Carter and Dejah Thoris lost somewhere in the Martian wastes, Thark chieftain Tars Tarkas takes it upon himself to search for his missing friends. Accompanied by the most fearsome of sidekicks in Woola, the shocking threat Tars uncovers in the desert sands is beyond even his warrior skills. Mighty Martian action in the tradition of creator Edgar Rice Burroughs!

    If you have not yet ventured forth into the world of Barsoom, you will find no better starting place than this issue. Despite being heavily based upon the mythology ofEdgar Rice Burroughs' world, it is easily accessible to new readers. More than that, it is a true ripping yarn with excellent artwork.

    The positive aspects of the story in John Carter: Warlord of Mars #10 is that it's a nice wee tale with big pages of art and focuses on Tars Tarkas with nice art and character building. The negative side is that the tale may be too simple and of no relevance or consequence to the Barsoom universe rather than to remind folk what a badass Tars is and that Woola is not to be trifled with either. I can't dislike this story even for its simplicity as i have a respect for Edgar rice Burroughs and his Barsoom world and the ingenuity of his world building that was created over a 100 years ago and how it stands the test of time and is better than some efforts that appear in the sci-fi genre today. There is i feel still a place for the old-fashioned good versus evil, bright and bold heroic stories without them resorting to dark, gritty and depressing. Read Full Review
