    This is an excellent jumping in point to one of Burroughs' greatest creations and one of Dynamite's best titles. A classic character in an enjoyable adventure. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Jun 23, 2015

    This issue is not really special in any way, and its ending even buys into some of the more misogynist trends of the original novels but it is also not really trying to be more. This is much more like an issue of a 1950s jungle adventure story, except one that is reinvented on Mars. It is a fun start to the story arc, if not particularly inventive or memorable, and it is worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny Hughes Jun 23, 2015

    This pretty much sums up the book. Despite the best intentions of all involved, the best thing about the book is the Ed Benes cover, at least on thevariant I reviewed. It's a shame then, asI have grown quite fond of the Dynamite heroines, that this book left me more than a little disappointed. Hopefully this is blip rather than then norm, but on the current showing, I am not sure I am that interested in checking next month to find out. Read Full Review
