CARSON OF VENUS WARLORD OF MARS #1

“Untitled”
Writer: David Avallone
Artist: Cyrus Mesarcia

Simultaneously on Mars and Venus a mysterious doorway appears. Both John Carter and Carson Napier show no hesitation as they both step through. They find themselves on the planet Mayzora. Koh-Ray was the scientist who created the doors. He needs heroes to rescue the princess Koh-Sah from the tower of Kah-Nazor the emperor of Meyzora. Well naturally the two are heroes and agree. So they assault the tower which has hundreds of offworld mercenaries and giant robot sentinels. They have no problem fighting their way to the top and capturing the emperor. They free the princess and reunite her with her love Koh-Ray.

I believe this is the first time these two Burroughs characters were ever paired together. I am surprised it hasn’t been done before. Leave it up to American Mythology to do it. This was an enjoyable action story. Both characters were true to the characters Burroughs created and it was a humorous tongue in cheek story that paid homage to them. So we get some fairly harmless insect like aliens with four eyes as the aliens. It looks like John Carter and Barsoom are joining the shared universe that American Mythology has created. I do look forward to more stories that this company will create.
