Ed and Jim are here to examine John Carter, Warlord of Mars: the Marvel comic-book series, from back in da’ day.
Yes, the American publisher Marvel Comics began releasing the comic book series John Carter, Warlord of Mars in 1977. It feels like yesterday!
Based on the Barsoom books by Edgar Rice Burroughs, it was written by Marv Wolfman and illustrated by Gil Kane.
The comic-book ran from 1977 to 1979 and, with a few rare exceptions, the whole of the series takes place within the events of the novel, A Princess of Mars.
