Descripton: Based on Edgar Rice Burroughs Barsoom novels, Dynamite brings back a century of adventures in this miniseries about John Carter, who has been revived and rejuvenated through retellings of his timeless tales., Writer Arvid Nelson and artist Stephen Sadowski placed focus on the Martian princess and lead female protagonist, Dejah Thoris, who is featured on the limited Ale Garza cover. In a similar light, Garza, who also signed the cover, worked on new-generation comic books, the likes of Batgirl and Supergirl, that bring the typically secondary characters into titular focus. Garza’s adventure into the comic world has just begun, and he’s already avoiding the damsel in distress trope.
Descripton: The first in the “Gods of Mars” arc, we return to the epic of John Carter’s arrival back to Mars. This issue followed the previous mystery and suspense issue prominently Dejah Thoris’s inspection into the greatest threat to the planet. A nude portrait of Dejah by Ale Garza placed her as the primary character in the previous issue, different form the damsel in distress she portrayed in the Edward Rice Burroughs’ novels. Although this arc brings us back to John Carter’s adventures on Mars, the storylines in this comic book no longer follow a linear storyline, as different arcs start to take place within the same time frame.
