A major discovery of Barsoom antiquity, the answer to the mystery of the two towers (and the real whereabouts of Dejah Thoris’ grandfather), plus a shocking climax no one will expect!

Writer Arvid Nelson brings it all together in this chapter of the ongoing “Tyrant of Mars” arc wherein a returning Tardos Mors has seized power from John Carter and suddenly brought war to the races of Mars.

Meanwhile, with the help of friends and enemies alike, Carter, Deja Thoris and Carthoris have arrived at the Otz Mountains, near the Antarctic circle of the Red Planet. They seek the knowledge of the ancient white-skinned Therns, something to explain what is happening around their world (including Tardos Mors’ return) but it appears the new Warlord has gotten there first.

John Carter makes a deal with the devil to learn the answers he seeks, and one of his own pays the price!

Artist Wagner Reis carries Nelson’s script panel for panel, with some breath-taking views of Barsoom and its alien landscapes. The beauty and sheer weirdness of some of it conjures the loneliness and the unknown of space travel and planetary exploration.

Nelson always gives great action, fantastic science fiction in the Burroughs tradition, and that touch of mystery and character that keeps readers satisfied and coming back to Warlord of Mars.
