Legend of John Carter - "Warlord of Mars"
Carter was an ex-Civil war soldier in the 1860's, who is
teleported to the planet Mars. His Earth body - strengthened by a lesser
- is incredibly strong and athletic when pitted against the planet's
a group of various warrior races of many different alien species, shapes,
sizes, and colors like the Tharks
- a race of 15 foot tall, four-armed, green men with tusks. Filled with
adventure, sword fights, dangerous creatures, and peril, the hero John
Carter falls in love with beautiful red-skinned Princess Dejah
Thoris, and he eventually becomes Warlord
of Mars - or Barsoom
as it's inhabitants call the planet. I first read these stories in comic
book form when I was a young boy in the
early 1970s. A couple of years later I read the book "A Princess
of Mars" written by the great author Edgar
Rice Burroughs in 1912 - author of many other wonderful literary
works such as the classic jungle adventure story "Tarzan
of the Apes."
