The Best Graphic Novel You'll Read This Year

Dark Horse comics has released a complete compilation of the John Carter of Mars: Warlord of Mars series into a trade paper back. I have heard complaints that it is only in black & white, but to me that is a feature! I love that it is only in b&w, I can savor every beautiful ink line from masters such as Rudy Nebres (besides, I have all the original comics). Best of all it is printed on smooth paper - the best for B&W reproduction. The quality is excellent.

In addition, the series is excellently written by Chris Claremont with an obvious affection for the master story teller: Edgar Rice Burroughs. I am really enjoying it, and you should to.

  1. cool, gotta get that. The John Carter comics were drawn better then they were colored.
