BC Mag #3: Dejah Thoris And The Warlord Of Mars

DejahGreenMen04-Cov-AnacletoBleeding Cool Magazine article by Keith Davidsen

It’s amazing to think that John Carter, the iconic protagonist of the Warlord of Mars series and the sci-fi genre’s prototypical space hero, first appeared in print over a hundred years ago. One of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ two most beloved characters (the other being Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle), John Carter appeared in stories that blended two-fisted adventure with exotic alien landscapes, serving as an antecedent for later fantasy epics (like Robert E. Howard’s Conan the Barbarian) and serialized space adventures (Flash Gordon, Buck Rogers).

A century since Carter’s first appearance in the novel A Princess of Mars, Dynamite Entertainment has breathed new life into the epic sci-fi fantasy, building a complex and thrilling franchise that faithfully continues the story of Burroughs’ displaced Confederate soldier. Furthermore, Dynamite’s creative talent has successfully taken Dejah Thoris, Carter’s red-skinned love interest, and reinforced her status as a heroine worthy of her own ongoing series and spin-off projects.
