Marvel Comics: The origin of Dejah Thoris

The blog Diversions of the Groovy Kind has beautiful and readable jpegs of “The Story of Dejah Thoris,” Issue #11 (April 1978) in Marvel Comics’ John Carter Warlord of Mars adaptation of the classic Barsoom novels written by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Penned by scribe Marv Wolfman with exquisite artwork by Dave Cockrum and Rudy Nebres, Ol' Groove feels #11 is the high-water mark for the entire 28-issue comic series. I can’t speak to that, but check out the details of this cover art!
