Pulp Crazy – John Carter: Warlord of Mars #1 Review

http://pulpcrazy.com/podcast/088.mp3

In this weeks episode I will be reviewing John Carter: Warlord of Mars #1 from Dynamite Entertainment. The comic is written by Ron Marz and illustrated by Abishek Malsuni. Nanjan Jamberi lends some amazing colors and Rob Steen is on lettering.

The comic just came out this week, so I wanted to put up a review, as this is a pretty big occasion. This is the first authorized John Carter comic we’ve seen since Marvel put them out a few years back to coincide with the Disney Movie. Dynamite has been publishing comics set around the public domain John Carter stories, but a settlement has been reached between Dynamite and Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc. that allows for new, authorized tales to be told. John Carter: Warlord of Mars #1 marks the beginning of this partnership.

Pulp Crazy – Bigfoot Sword of the Earthman

 

 

http://pulpcrazy.com/podcast/079.mp3

 

In this weeks episode I will be discussing Bigfoot Sword of the Earthman, a six issue comic book mini series published by BrewHouse Comics. The comic is written by Josh S. Henaman with line art by Andy Taylor and colors by Thomas Bonvillain. The first issue came out in November 2012 and the sixth issue was recently published in August 2014. This is a sword and planet as well as a sword and sorcery comic. It’s very much in the vein of Edgar Rice Burroughs and Robert E. Howard. One of the tag lines I saw floating around in the promotional materials was Sword, Sorcery and Sasquatch.

 

The premise of the book is that a group of mages on Mars summoned Bigfoot to the Red Planet from Earth. The mute brute is enslaved at first, but later escapes. His tag-along/partner is Castor, a member of the scribe caste elite. They seem to be the bards and storytellers of Mars. He sees Bigfoot, (who is known only as the Earthman among the inhabiatants of Mars), as his meal ticket. However things don’t go according to plan, Mars is ruled by a heavy handed tyrant named Lord Jeoffa. Doing Lord Jeoffa’s dirty work is my favorite character of the series, Korovan Muspin, a red skinned reptilian barbarian who is more than a physical match with the Earthman. There is a really cool four page origin story for Muspin in the final four pages of issue #1, that puts a unique spin on what goes on in a Martian Rookery.
