About the Book:
The Great Toonolian Marshes - one of the most feared places in Barsoom with 1800 miles of marsh land infested with exotic and dangerous creatures. Dejah Thoris, along with her new pilot Kantos Kan, ventures into this foreboding region on an expeditionary mission to find desperately needed minerals. While exploring, Dejah is possessed by "The Boora Witch," an ancient, demonic creature. Unknown to anyone, The Witch takes control of Dejah and starts spinning a web that could destroy Helium once and for all! Dejah has overcome many enemies, but can she overcome the enemy within? This volume also features the stand-alone story of Dejah's journey into the Kaolian Forest and her encounter with the dreaded giant insects known as the Sith!
It’s no secret how much I adore the Warlord of Mars Series and lore created by Edgar Rice Burroughs. With that being said, I love the vast ways in which the stories of our beloved characters are being expanded upon in these graphic novels. And the stories of Dejah Thoris are no different.
Our journey begins with Dejah and her crew of beefcakes – I mean team of strapping muscular men – landing in the The Great Toonolian Marshes in search of minerals, Ersite and Forandus, for the twin cities. Despite the urging of her pilot, Kantos Kan, Dejah ventures with her navy into the Marshes. And of course they run into every creature imaginable while searching desperately for the minerals. Later that night, our leading lady is called from her sleep by a mysterious presence. She follows the voice to a cave where a malevolent witch works her magic and places her spirit inside Dejah’s body with the ability to possess her actions and thoughts at night. And it’s at night the witch, consumed with thoughts of power, seeks to create her own empire by eliminating the men in charge, her grandfather and father, by orchestrating a plan so devious, it couldn’t fail.
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris Volume 3 – The Boora Witch. The artwork for this series is by far still one of my favorites, filled with bright vivid colors and over-the-top illustrations. I love Dejah, even as a batsh*t crazed witch she still remains a kick a$$ heroine with sexiness that oozes from her scalp down to her toenails. I highly recommend this graphic novel and the entire series to anyone who likes comics filled with adventure and fantasy, and a little *eye candy* to top it all off!
