    Coincidences and wonders worthy of Burroughs!

    Awesome prequel to the upcoming movie! Although the comic (and more than likely the movie too) doesnt follow the plot of the book, it stays true to the spirit of Edgar Rice Burroughs' original books. Although John Carter himself isnt part of the actual story, he narrates it, and he sounds just like he would if it actually written by Burroughs himself. If youve read the books, youll love this!

    JC Rules

    I read this prequel before seeing the movie. It was a great intro to the planet Barsoom and its inhabitants. I didn't know that the movie was based on the Edgar Rice Bouroughs series of books. They are apparently public domain so you can get them free, but I would recommend buying a Nook version as it is formated for the Nook.
