Centuries have passed and time has taken its toll on Mars. Conflict burns across the landscape. A war of supremacy and genocide at the hands of a brutal despot has brought the planet to the edge of collapse. A search party has finally located an aged John Carter and Dejah Thoris, living in quiet seclusion on a desert moon, in perpetual mourning for their lost son. How could they be Mars’ last hope?
Introducing a John Carter story like you’ve never seen before, from co-writers Brian Wood (Star Wars, DMZ, Northlanders) and Alex Cox (Adventure Time), joined by artist Hayden Sherman (Civil War II: Kingpin).
“Hayden Sherman does a great job… It is primitive and powerful. Each panel looks dangerous, like you could be sliced to ribbons by the cliff faces.” – Comic Crusaders
“It never occurred to me that John Carter and Batman would have much in common, but I hadn’t read John Carter: The End yet.” – Slack Jaw Punks
“A perfect continuation for the stories of Edgar Rice Burroughs and the characters of Barsoom. This should please, delight and thrill old and new fans alike.” – Outright Geekery
I’ve been getting more and more interested in the John Carter mythos, first introduced to me by the Disney movie, and this was my first purchase of Carter comics that I’ve been able to get around to reading. I have the adaptation around my office somewhere, just need to dig it out and read it.
I realize that starting with a series named “The End” was likely a bad idea, but there wasn’t anything here that was confusing, and the issues were only $1 each during the annual MidTown sale.
Here’s the book that I was most impressed with it’s cover: leagueofcomicgeeks.com/comic/4679913/john-carter-the-end-3?variant=8038692
Fantastic, isn’t it?
