Review of new John Carter of Mars: The Jesse Marsh Years comic book collection

The blog JCOM Reader has an insightful review of the new Edgar Rice Burroughs’ John Carter of Mars: The Jesse Marsh Years (Dark Horse Comics, May 2010) reprinted 1950s comic book collection, concluding: “In the end the book is probably going to split John Carter fans. Some will probably enjoy it and some will probably not like it for differing reasons. The presentation by Dark Horse is pretty good though -- a nice hardcover binding, original covers and inside art showing the different creatures of Barsoom -- and a nice introduction by Love and Rockets co-creator Marco Hernandez at least gives it an A for effort for B material.” I bought the book but haven't had a chance to look at it closely.
