    12?!?!?!!

    according to the main page for it here . . . it has only been expanded to eight issues (including the ones already released) either way its getting additional time on its run, which despite my issues with the series I am happy to see . . . I mean, it needs to extra time to clean up the problems it caused.
    Let Disney know, that you want to go Back To Barsoom.

    According to Sept solicits:

    DEJAH THORIS AND THE GREEN MEN OF MARS #8

    Written by Mark Rahner, art by Lui Antonio, covers by Jay Anacleto.

    Now expanded to 12 issues! Race hatred stoked by terrorists threatens to drive Heliumites and Tharks back to war. Everything the trauma-exhausted Dejah Thoris does only seems to worsen it. And her last-ditch plan brings her face-to-face with the disfigured Thark who triggers her worst fears!

    32 pages, $3.99.

    that is odd, because the main site here still says its 8 . . . are they planning an extension of an extension . . . that is strange? this was just supposed to be a 4 issue mini . . . weird how it has gotten out of hand like this, especialyl since it is . . . well the worst mini taht they have put out for this series.

    but yeah it did get better near the end I guess . . .

    yeah but what is the purpose of this particular comic becoming ongoing? it has nothing that adds to the universe or lore other than characters, politics, and scenes of graphic horror. There are very few redeeming factors to the series, and on top of that its really just an extension of teh Dejah Thoris main series.

    The Dejah Thoris main series is still set roughly in 1429, right?

    sounds about right, but I am not entire sure . . .

    Its a shame this series is ongoing though, I was really hoping for "Dejah Thoris & The Black Pirates of Mars"

    I'm completely content with characters, politics, and scenes of graphic horror as an extension of the Dejah Thoris main series.

    Im not, because this would have been far more suitable for a Tara story. Consider Chessmen of Mars (now public domain) the headless Rykors, the Horrid Kaldanes, the psychological torment that Tara underwent... then the city of Manator, whose inhabitants use human beings as pawns in a game of chess, and their tradition of using the art of Taxidermy on their dead and displaying them.

    Not only that, but Chessmen of Mars also had some political aspects too it. Dejah Thoris and the Green Men of Mars would have been a far better story to have with Tara of Helium as the main character, and as an extension of a potential Chessmen of Mars comic... It would have been far more with keeping in the spirit of the book and the characters.

    Shame the Ras Thavas trilogy series is not in public domain, those books got their own fair share of well-thought horror. Barsoom is not a universe without horror, you just gotta know where to put it bro!
