John Carter of Mars

Some of the most striking covers by the legendary Michael Whelan were the ones he did for the John Carter of Mars series.  Even if you don't care for the books, they are worth collecting for the covers.

Edgar Rice Burroughs' John Carter of Mars books have been around longer than I have been alive.  Over the years, different companies have adapted the books into comic form.

Dynamite Entertainment is the latest company to try.  What are they offering to make their book different?  Writer Arvid Nelson has developed a back story that leads into the first novel.  He does a believable job of filling in the back story based on Burrough's stories.  If you liked the originals, I would recommend picking up this series.
