John Carter of Mars back in comics

It has been a long time since John Carter was in comic book form. I'm aware of the Marvel comics series and several appearances in the DC comics under various Tarzan titles. But here we have Dynamite Entertainment continuing their fantastic pulp title resurrections. This story was Edgar Rice Burrough's first novel. Published in 1913. In two and a half years, this story will be 100 years old! I'll be checking this out.

Warlord of Mars is the Dynamite comic book adaptation and expansion on Edgar Rice Burrough’s Princess of Mars. Written by Arvid Nelson, drawn by Stephen  Sadowski and Lui Antonio, with covers by Alex Ross, Joe Jusko, Lucio Parillo, and J. Scott Campbell!
Told in the manner of the original as the memoirs of one John Carter, looking the the back story, expanding story elements and selling the all important first issue for a dollar.
