One of my favorite independent comic publishers in recent years has been Dynamite Entertainment. They have not disappointed me with any of their titles, so I decided to check out Warriors of Mars #1 to see what it was about.

The story is about a man from Earth named Gullivar Jones who is an officer in the Navy from New York City. Jones, wishing that he didn’t have to live in the corrupt world he lives in, is transported to Mars. When he first arrives he meets local townsman from the city of Seth who then tell him to meet the king. While meeting the king, the city comes under attack in which the king’s daughter falls into a canal of water and Jones rescues her winning favor with the king.

I like the story by Robert Place Napton and it is entertaining as well as a good solid first issue. It had some parts that were a little difficult to follow, but if you can get passed that, then you will enjoy it. Napton shows the reader that we are just as alien to the residents of Mars as they are to us. It is a great story of courage and bravery.

I don’t think the art by Jack Jadson is that great, but it is all right for a first issue. I do, however, like the backgrounds and rain effects in the book. I think the action scenes are solid and show the bravery of our hero.

All and all, this book is good, but not amazing. I think I will pick it up again just to see where the story goes.

Overall 3 out of 5. The story is there, but the art is just all right.
