    While a bit wobbly structurally, Warlord of Mars Attacks #1 still delivers what it says on the box, as it were. John Carter versus Martians, armed with ray guns and swords. What more do you want, a road map?! Jokes aside, this debut is a grand old-fashioned goof. One the creative team is firmly in on and trying to deliver as grandly as possible. What's not to like about that? Read Full Review

    This John Carter versus the Mars Attacks aliens works on a surprising level. The action of one meets the gallows humor of the other in an effective mash up that ends up as more than the sum of its parts. Read Full Review

    The first few pages are a lot of fun as we see events play out on Barsoom and the way the fight is not going their way as the moonheads are dominating everything. I like how this plays out with some good action and intensity, along with some really well-animated moonheads that also gave me a taste of their language in translation. Parker has some fun here and ups the stakes nicely and quickly but it feels like the shift to Earth in the present doesn't work as well. I get that it's following John Carter and there's some form of him likely to be here in the present, planning for this, but I'm not sure bringing it to Earth is the good choice or not as I'd love to see more of a fight for Mars/Barsoom thing going on. There are some good bits here but right now almost the entire Earth cast of characters are annoying me and that doesn't set a good stage. Read Full Review
