An Adventure Story for the Ages
Arvid Nelson’s Warlord of Mars #2 continues with the adventures of John Carter, prospector and romantic hero. The Tale of Two Planets delivers just what it says; it divides it’s time between the risky business of prospecting in the western USA with the tribal struggles in Mars. This simultaneous story development will culminate in the next issue with the encounter of the Earthman Carter with the Martian Tars Tarkas, Vice Chieftain. There is plenty of reading in this comic as Nelson painstakingly describes the action taking place bringing the flavor of Edgar Rice Burroughs in every page.
The artistic talent of Stephen Sadowski and Adriano Lucas leaves the reader with a complete experience that can only be described as immersive into the story. The reader simply feels like being part of the story and each panel reaffirms the text presented.
This series is definitely a must have if you crave adventure, action and great imagery.
