Martians live forever -- everyone knows that. So what was Dejah Thoris doing all those hundreds of years before John Carter arrived? Four hundred years before the events of Warlord of Mars took place, Dejah's nation of Helium was divided into two warring city-states. An unscrupulous overlord from afar encouraged that rivalry to his own advantage, until he discovered a terrible secret from Mars's ancient past beneath Dejah Thoris' capital. A secret to kill for!

    Arvid Nelson has got Barsoom down and his art team is spectacular. This is the right time to get on board and you should. I am looking forward anxiously to issue #2. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Mar 7, 2011

    The Warlord of Mars series is not for everyone, but that doesn't mean it isn't worth checking out. This opening chapter is well plotted and paced, and the reveal at the end is a real surprise. Rafael's art is solid in how he lays out the pages, and stages the action, and there is an interesting combination going on between the inker and the colorist. I have feeling most people are going to pick up this issue based on the scantily clad Thoris on the cover, but the real draw is the story inside. Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris #1 is a solid read, earning 4 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review
