This is the trade for the "prequel" mini-series that came out a couple of months ago. They rushed the trade version out in time for the movie. Hopefully the art was readable than their version of Princess of Mars. Lawsuits notwithstanding, Dynamite's version was much better.
I completely agree. I'm enjoying Dynamite's unofficial series much better than the official Marvel one. Much more faithful imo.
I have an article on the history of John Carter in the comics in the current issue of Comic Book Quarterly for those who might be interested:
Nice article theagenes.
Wouldn't mind owning the Jesse Marsh tpb when I next get some money. I have the darkhorse marvel reprint tpb and really enjoyed it despite some inconsistencies.
The Jesse Marsh stuff, quite honestly, isn't very good, though it's cool to have for it's historical value, or if you're a completist. But the artwork just doesn't do it for me. It looks crude and amateurish by todays standards.
