    I cannot wait to see what happens when these two fish-out-of-water characters, and their wives, meet. A super first issue that has me dreaming of vine swinging on Mars. Read Full Review

    So it's a slow start to the story by Arvid Nelson (though it promises to pick up quickly). The art by Robert Casto is solid, but he doesn't get much room to show off here - there's a lot of standing around going on. But the promise is there, and it should be interesting to see how Tarzan adapts to Mars - and how he reacts when he meets the White Apes. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Brandon Dingess Aug 4, 2013

    I know it sounds like I'm heaping on this book more criticism than praise, but "Lords of Mars" is going to be a great series; I can tell already! While this issue focused on setting up the two characters for their inevitable encounter I'm confident issues two through six will be a lot more action packed. I suggest waiting until the second issue and getting both No. 1 and No. 2 at the same time; that way you won't be strung along with the manufactured cliffhanger at the end of this issue. 2.5 stars, but I could go up to 3 if the next issue pays off.

    Lords of Mars isn't a painful read, but itis one that you are liable to forget right after reading. There just isn't a sufficient hook to ensure you come back next month. Dynamite Entertainment has some really interesting pulp comics being published right now, so if you're looking to diversify your comic reading I would suggest starting withGreen Hornet, The Shadow,orRed Sonja and leaveLords of Mars well enough alone.

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Aug 7, 2013

    Lords of Mars has a lot of potential and it's a pretty good story. With a big crossover of two such icons, you expect a little more punch to it. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Jimbus_Christ Aug 8, 2013

    The promise of the book remains. If issue #2 picks the pacing up we may actually have the book we were sold. As it stands however, "Lords of Mars" fails to serve as an interesting chapter in either hero's journey. With a couple of tweaks and little more action the series could get much better. Approach with caution. Read Full Review
