Free Comic Book Day: Gullivar Jones, Warrior of Mars (Marvel, 1972)

Thanks to an old post at The Bronze Age of Blogs, you can celebrate Free Comic Book Day by reading beautiful jpegs of the first episode of Gullivar Jones, Warrior of Mars, which was published in the Vol. 1, No. 16, March 1972 issue of Marvel Comics' Creatures on the Loose. Written by Roy Thomas and initially drawn by Gil Kane, Gullivar Jones, Warrior of Mars was short lived. It ran in just six issues of Creatures on the Loose and each episode was only ten-pages long. The storyline was based loosely upon Edwin L. Arnold’s Martian SF novel Lieut. Gullivar Jones: His Vacation (1905).
