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

The website First Comics News has a nice 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: “Editor Samantha Robertson, Designer David Nestelle and Digital Restorer Andy Fisher have lovingly brought this collection to life without putting too much of their own stamp on it. They’ve just reproduced it as faithfully and beautifully as they could, so the work could go right ahead and speak for itself. The ability to know when to get out of the way and just let that happen is one of the best qualities of this Dark Horse team […] fine example of the comics medium which I give a well-deserved 9 out of 10.” I bought this hardcover book a few weeks ago. No regrets!
