Beautiful! 15 Feb. 2013
By C. Lawrence - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm not too familiar with the John Carter stories except from what I've gathered from the trailers from the Disney movie that came out a little while ago. But I am quite familiar with comics, and I have to say, this is a darn good comic. The team consists of Sam Humphries (rising star at Marvel right now), Ramon Perez (of Tale of Sand fame) and Jordie Bellaire (colorist extraordinaire). And they work great together. You jump right in with John Carter's return to Mars to find out that his love Dejah Thoris has been kidnapped and he has to save her by fighting through alien warriors, and expose the deceptions of the "Gods" of Mars. The writing's solid, and the story moves at a brisk, enjoyable pace. But for me, the real appeal is in the artwork. Perez's linework is incredible. Paired with coloring by Jordie Bellaire's coloring... Man. Pure eye candy. If you're a John Carter fan, I'm sure you'll want to read the sequential art form of one of your favorite series, and if you're just a fan of good comics like me, you should definitely check this out!

Also, the only other review at the moment mentions the paper quality and size of the book. Yes, the book is smaller than the standard graphic novel and the paper quality is different. The paper is somewhat thicker, non glossy type. Sorry I'm no expert on paper, but it's more akin to what Vertigo uses for their graphic novels like Scalped, Sweet Tooth, and Punk Rock Jesus. I'm don't know if it's of a lesser quality or just different type of paper, part of me believes it may be a thicker type to hold the ink better than the glossy type. But like I said, I dunno. And it didn't detract from my enjoyment of the book.
Give it a Chance 13 Aug. 2014
By Audel Salazar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very skeptical at first since it was an adaptation by Marvel but I was not let down. The Gods of Mars left off right where A Princess of Mars ends so if you haven't seen the movie or read the book you might be a little lost. Similar plot as the first one (it is ERB after all) but delves deeper into the world of Barsoom concerning religion and the various races. It is a bit short but if you love science fiction, action and adventure then you won't be disappointed. Bottom line: give it a chance.
Marvel's John Carter: The Gods of Mars 2 Mar. 2014
By Geoffrey Combs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We aren't going to get a John Carter movie sequel, but this is a good start if they decide to do one! Sam Humphries does take some liberties in what was published in the novel (no Thuvia controlling Banths), but Eisner Award winning artist Ramon Perez NAILS the style, look and feel of Barsoom. Overall this is a good addition to your ERB collection, and this graphic novel is even 'compact size', a little smaller in length/width than your normal comic book.

My only complaint, is that while Marvel did A Princess of Mars, a prequel, and The Gods of Mars... it ends on a cliffhanger, as they never produced the finale, Warlord of Mars.
Excellent telling of ERB's "The Gods of Mars" 28 Aug. 2013
By Joseph Pugh - Published on Amazon.com

The original story from ERB is one of my favorite of the Barsoom series.This telling of the story by Sam Humphries is made all the better by the artwork of Ramon Perez.

Any fan of ERB would do well to pick this up.
