Marvel strikes gold again with this Omnibus! With the John Carter movie on its way few were suprised to see this Omni appear, call it a marketing move or "cashing in" if you will, it doesn't change the fact that now we can have the entire Marvel John Carter stories from the 70's together in one beautiful hard bound edition! I couldn't be happier. I'm a big fan of this type of lavish treatment for almost forgotten gems of Marvels past. It's nice to see it get its due.

These issues take place specifically inbetween paragraphs 3 and 4 of chapter 27 of Burrough's "A Princess Of Mars" according to writer Marv Wolfman. For those that love the original John Carter stories as written by his creator, these stories should fit unobtrusely into the Barsoom chronicles. They are written in the same style of high adventure as Burroughs work and should be enjoyed by any that like that genre of "planetary romance".

The artwork on the book contains stellar work by no less the GIL KANE(!),Carmine Infantino, and Dave Cockrum to name a few. It's simply gorgeous and definately worthy of a second look in this format. Be sure to drool over the Cockrum character designs included in the bonus section! It's also worth mention the outstanding job Alan Davis does on the new cover (it's included inside both versions).

The construction of the book itself is top quality. NO GUTTER Loss and it lays as flat as you would like. The binding appears sewn and looks like it will last as well as you would expect for a book at this price point. Nice job. The book does NOT include all letters pages but that is a minor issue to me.

Once again Marvel has done a quality job on it Omnibus line. It's becoming a habit and a pleasure to give them 5 stars and a recommendation here on Amazon.

JC was one of the titles I collected as a kid. I remember being excited because #1 was released a few months after I started getting a weekly allowance, so I was able to accumulate a full run off of the newsstand. I have to admit that I didn't really care for it back then, being more interested in spaceships and superheros than swordfighting on a Mars that could not be, but I dutifully collected them all. I still have my full run stored away, but picked this up because I've enjoyed other Marvel Omnibuses and got into Burroughs in later years.

The reproduction is stunning. The art never looked this good on the old newsstock paper of the comic. The stories are much more enjoyable than I remembered too. If you like Burroughs and 70's era comics go ahead and get this. You won't be disappointed.

btw: Like other Marvel Omnibuses this is published with two cover versions. One features the cover of the 1st issue, the other shows brand new art by Alan Davis. Other than the cover the versions are identical. Amazon's product page shows the comic cover, but they are actually shipping the Davis cover. I uploaded a scan so you can see it.

The folks that have written previously about the content of this book have done a fine job in describing it. My only mission here is to let people know that the cover you see on the site may not be the one that shows up on your doorstep. When I ordered my copy from Amazon, the slip cover on my volume had art by Alan Davis that looks nothing like the classic Gil Kane style cover pictured on the listing. While the Davis art is fine, I really like the Kane art.

The Davis cover, as I have come to understand, is the regular release, with the Kane cover being the variant. The actual Kane cover, however, is not the one pictured on the site either. It is the same art, but it has been recolored in the manner of a number of Omnibus variants, in that it has the look of an oil painting, and not the bright, four color look of the original #1 comic cover that is pictured above. So essentially, same pencils and inks, different re-color applied.

I hope this is helpful for folks looking to order this volume. I love the interior, which is what really matters, but we comic folks are a strange lot, and I know some of you out there will care to know the cover is a roll of the dice.

I still own the original series of this omnibus. If you don't, then do yourself a favor and purchase this fantastic, classic comic-book series. Great writers, great artists, and solid entertainment. If you don't know the John Carter universe, and want to get further stoked for the upcoming movie, then this is a great place to start.

Unless, that is, you just read the Burroughs novels...

I was looking for some interesting stuff related to John Carter (of Mars) with the upcoming movie from Disney looking like a blockbuster when I stumbled on this huge book of Marvel comic reprints based on the great Edgar Rice Burroughs series.

I've read all the original books in this series and always wanted more of this world, the previous movie efforts have been weak at best, so the comics were a blessed relief, yet remained expensive to obtain. Now we get the comics at an affordable price and a movie on the way that looks very promising, it's good to be a John Carter fan right now!

If you're a fan of John Carter you'll want this beautiful book, if you enjoy movie tie-in stuff this book is a great item to stick on the coffee table for friends to browse... or stick one in the closet for a sweet collectible.

It is also worth mentioning that this book was a pre-order sell out on many fan sites at almost a 100 bucks plus shipping.
