About the Author
Arvid Nelson is lecturer and assistant professor adjunct, Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, and trustee of the Smith Richardson Foundation, Inc., a leading foundation in global security and foreign policy studies.
Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875-1950) is the creator of Tarzan, one of the most popular fictional characters of all time, and John Carter, hero of the Barsoom science fiction series. Burroughs was a prolific author, writing almost 70 books before his death in 1950, and was one of the first authors to popularize a character across multiple media, as he did with Tarzan s appearance in comic strips, movies, and merchandise. Residing in Hawaii at the time of the attack on Pearl Harbour in 1941, Burroughs was drawn into the Second World War and became one of the oldest war correspondents at the time. Edgar Rice Burroughs s popularity continues to be memorialized through the community of Tarzana, California, which is named after the ranch he owned in the area, and through the Burrough crater on Mars, which was named in his honour.

Unlike the previous two volumes, my memory of the original story is a bit vague, so I can’t tell how closely this adaptation follows the original. However, in terms of ‘feel’ it is excellent, and the story sees John Carter, aided by Tars Tarkas, Woola and son Cathoris rushing form south pole to north pole in pursuit of villainous Martians of varying hues to rescue Dejah Thoris, and finally gain the title of Warlord of Mars. The artwork is very good, with plenty of detailed backgrounds, something which fades away in the various spin-off series

The seven issues include an all new two issue story shoe horned in between the 2nd and 3rd novel adaptations. This story is called Worms Of Mars. This story is a first love story for young Carthoris and my favorite part of the volume.
Then what follows is a five part adaptation of the third Barsoom novel Warlord Of Mars. The story continues from The Gods Of Mars and is rescue story involving the abduction of the three hottest women on Mars: Dejah Thoris, Thuvia and Phaidor. The pursuit involves a trek to the unknown regions of the northern Mars
Arvid Nelson remains an excellent writer and I look forward to more of his Mars books. This continues to be the flagship title. The art by Stefano Martinez, Vicente Cifuentes, Leandro Oliveira and Everton Sousa seems very inconsistent this volume and is the reason I knocked off a star since volume 2. The art is not bad by any definition,it just seems to change styles drastically and became a distraction. The artists (I am guessing) might be from the same studio in Spain. The TPB does not breakdown who did what, but four artists and three colorist in seven issues is just too much. I miss Stephen Sadowski. Included once more are all the beautiful Joe Jusko and Lucio Parillo covers and alternate covers. They are tremendous.
Overall this remains the best John Carter series yet produced and very faithful to Edgar Rice Burroughs
