John Carter rules all of Mars, but what happens when  the rightful (and believed dead) king of Helium returns, spit out of a mysterious ruby egg? What will that mean to John Carter and his herculean efforts to unite the races of Barsoom? Not to mention his throne?

Whatever the answer to those questions, you will not find out in Warlord of Mars #31.

What you will find is some fine character-building, Deja Thoris in the spotlight and a lot of neat monster-whoop-ass action! (C’mon, it’s a new John Carter chapter, let’s have fun!)

Besides relations on Barsoom and the return of Deja’s grandfather, the star of this issue is the art of Wagner Reis!

Reis' panel arrangements during the action scenes are spot-on, and his character studies are refreshing and bring life to our cast. Oh sure, there may be a little hippy angle here or an undue hand twist there, but these for the most part are aliens anyway. And his monsters and creatures of Barsoom burden are top notch!

This is a book those who love sword and sorcery as well as smash-‘em-up Godzilla fare will enjoy. A great hop-aboard issue for those valued new readers!

Again, a fun read!
