    I noticed there were no solicits for June, I hope DE is not planning on canceling this great series.
    I noticed this too, and while I don't have any real information I do know that the book isn't lighting up the sales charts recently and it could possibly see it's end sooner than later. Even just 3-4 months ago this book's orders were very solid, these day's they've leveled off to what you would expect for a book of this sorts. It's still a great story, though.

      I hope it doesn't get canceled. It's been a good read and has followed the ERB books closer than most. When I mentioned it to a friend and said that Jane was a blonde, she was suprised.
      I'm almost wondering if Dynamite might have to high an expectaion on some of thier books. Some books that seem to have solid Reader support have been canceled (Thunderbolt, Flash Gordon, Phantom etc.)

      • i too would love to see Tarzan at the Earth's Core adapted by Dynamite. maybe they could also adapt some of the Pellucidar novels as well. if Dynamite needs to generate some interest then why not a Tarzan/Phantom team up. i love the Phantom too and it just makes sense that at least one incarnation of the Phantom would encounter Tarzan.

          For the 1980s, yeah. I can't think of a decade where (except for the two releases right at the beginning of the decade, Bo Derek's Tarzan the Ape Man and Greystoke) Tarzan seemed more dormant in all media. Some people would say the 1990s, but at least the 1990s had comic books from Malibu and Dark Horse.

          • Nope, it's not just me. Next week (May 8) both Warlord of Mars #24 and Warlord of Mars Dejah Thoris #25 will ship to comic shops. Warlord of Mars began in October 2010, while Warlord of Mars Dejah Thoris began in March 2011 (the same month Warlord of Mars #6 shipped).

            At this point in time, Warlord of Mars still sells a little better than Warlord of Mars Dejah Thoris. WoM #23 was ranked #198 in Diamond Comics Top 300 list for February 2013, while WoMDT #22 for that same month was ranked #219. In Diamond's Top 300 list for March 2013, Dejah Thoris and the Green Men of Mars #1 ranked at #214, while the ongoing WoMDT #23 ranked at #234. The original WoM title did not ship that month.

            • i read the first two issues of this series and yeah, i agree with several of the posters here. this book isn't for me. i'd agree its torture porn. maybe not quite the same level as Saw but its quite unnecessary. some gruesome things happen in the original novels...but as far as i can recall, nothing like these comics.

              • Hmmm. I did some research...

                Mark Rahner: It takes existing characters into new and nastier territory. I always thought there was room for all different types of stories on Barsoom in addition to the swashbuckling romances. This one is more like Burroughs by way of, say, I Spit on Your Grave, Hostel, The Descent, and maybe even a little Zero Dark Thirty.
                CBN: What would you like readers to walk away with after the completion of the series?

                Mark Rahner: A feeling of intense unease, followed by a little relief.
                Well, people's reactions appear to be what the writer is aiming for...

                • Well, he appears to have hit the mark he was aiming for. I'm not sure he was thinking about it too deeply, since a number of people seem to have quit after reading the first issue in order to experience that feeling of relief.

                  • After reading this thread and looking at the previews, I think I'll just go from "blissful ignorance" to "blessed relief" and skip the thing entirely.

                      I grew up in the 1990's and there was a fair amount of Tarzan in the media. A blonde hair Tarzan series, Joe Lara's Tarzan the epic adventures and Disneys Tarzan. The 2000's thats when things started to dwindle, both comics and multi-media.

                      • I might be in the minority but I'm still loving this book. I think Dejah is raring up to slaughter some green Martian! I like the horror movie tone of this series.

                        • I'm loving it as well. It got me to start reading Warlord of Mars and Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris again.

                          • This actually kinda surprised me. More people actually bought Green Men than the main book.

                            I buy both, so it's not a competition for me, but I found it interesting.

                              I like the Warlord of Mars but cancelled it way back when. simply because it follows the book pretty much exactly and I read them already.
