Princess Dejah Thoris and john Carter must escape their captors but John Carter is torn between friendship and survival and knows that he must learn more about Mars and the Barsoomians to survive in this strange and dying planet.
Edgard Rice Burroughs' Mars is a dying planet that has forced its inhabitants to adopt certain traits in order to survive. How the writer treats the many challenges that would become part of life in this desolate place will determine the success of the story. This adaptation is giving Burroughs work a life beyond what the text alone can deliver. This is a tribute to the artists involved in this interpretation and the adaptation of the writer; excellent job.
