Alien invaders have conquered John Carter's adopted world of Barsoom. John Carter endeavors to reach the occupied city of Helium, where his beloved Dejah Thoris is held captive by the invaders. But Dejah Thoris is no princess-in-peril, as she hatches a plot to escape from her captors and lead her people in bloody rebellion! Classic planetary adventure in tradition of grand master Edgar Rice Burroughs!

    As this arc develops, a few things are clear: Ron Marz is a great storyteller, Malsuni's art is a perfect complement to that storytelling, and JCWM continues to be a must read. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Jan 7, 2015

    John Carter: Warlord of Mars #3 carries an aged atmosphere with a modern glow. It's an old machine that can strut its stuff with ease while putting many other popular properties to shame. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - RobertJCross Jan 6, 2015

    I'm under the impression that Malsuni actually lived on Mars at one point. The art is literally OUT OF THIS WORLD. I love the creature designs (which he obviously got from the original books, but the updated versions rule) because Malsunibrings them to life so effortlessly. Paired with the writing of course, you could see these things actually existing. When an artist can do that in a world like this, it goes a long way into connecting with the characters. I feel likeeveryone involved in the story is slowly gaining my emotional dependence. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Jan 10, 2015

    This series is not related to the John Carter, Warlord of Mars book that was published in 1919, but as the Jedak of all Jedaks, John Carter is a strong warlord, so I'm okay with the title here. This issue focused a lot on Dejah Thoris, while John Carter and his team were flying back to Helium. A little slow in parts, but overall I thought this issue was better than average for a third issue. Worth checking out, but I'd suggest you pick up the previous two issues first. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Jan 5, 2015

    The series still has some ground to catch up on in order to be headed in the right direction. While this is based on a science fiction closer to fantasy, it seems to be bogged down by it, not thriving in the fertile ground that such stories can use to their benefit. As a reintroduction to the characters, this first story arc has maybe done its job, but it has done so in a lacklustre way, and the series would benefit from moving beyond this first story arc into something more meaningful.

    A rollicking action yarn that unfortunately retains the flaws of its source material. Read Full Review
