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.
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'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.
