For the centennial issue of Warlord of Mars, we bring THREE stories by the THREE most prolific writers of recent Barsoomian history, each starring Barsoom's greatest calot: WOOLA! Beginning with a story by Robert (WARLORD OF MARS: DEJAH THORIS) Napton, taking place 400 years before John Carter's arrival on Barsoom, where a young Woola discovers an ancient First Born artifact that isn't quite what it seems. The story continues by Arvid (WARLORD OF MARS) Nelson only to have it recovered by the Warlord himself many years later. What happens to the good people of Helium as the evil power begins to be unleashed? And what could it mean for the rest of Barsoom? Then, in the final chapter by Mark (DEJAH THORIS AND THE GREEN MEN OF MARS) Rahner, Woola must do the hardest thing of his life: not protect John Carter. The fiercely loyal calot must resist his strongest instincts to save Carter from horrifying brutality - or pay an infinitely worse price. Includes bonus material!

    Comic Spectrum - Bob Bretall Apr 16, 2014

    Overall, I really enjoyed the issue. The 1st 2 stories were self contained and I think they could be enjoyed by anyone picking up this issue off the stands. The 3rd story had great art but was hard for me to follow and may have relied on some knowledge of recent issues that I didn't possess, not a great idea for an issue that could be a totally solid jumping on point to next month's “Dejah of Mars” series also written by Mark Rahner. I'm interested in the premise set up by this story, even though I'm in the dark on the motivations behind what happened. I like these characters and I'm very happy to see how Dynamite has been handling them for the past 3 1/2 years. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Apr 17, 2014

    Warlord of Mars #100 is a good release but it's still plagued by the issues that ultimately hold back aspects of the connecting titles. Still with colors done bySalvatore Aiala Studios this is one extra purchase I can readily recommended. Read Full Review
