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.

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.

I could not be more pleased! For those who don't know, this massive omnibus collects Marvel's entire run of the "John Carter: Warlord of Mars" comic that ran between 1977 and 1979, and just so happened to be my introduction to John Carter and ERB's fabulous world or Barsoom. In my opinion it's still by far the best John Carter comic ever published. The book is printed on high quality glossy paper, and as an owner of most of the original issues, the reprints look much better than when they were originally published. Taking place in the ten year gap between Chapters 26 and 27 of a Princess of Mars, two extended story arcs particularly stand out: Marv Wolfman's "The Air Pirates of Mars" and Chris (X-Men) Claremont's "The Master Assassin of Mars". Both stories almost perfectly capture the style and tone of the original ERB tales. Of particular interest is issue 23, in which Dejah Thoris emerges as a capable swordswoman in her own right, taking on four deadly female assassins simultaneously. It's influence on Stanton's interpretation of the character is undeniable. One minor complaint is the dust jacket, which is different from the one on Amazon's website and is a radically different artistic style to that of the actual comic book, but it's not enough to get upset over. Highly recommended!
