Dynamite Comics To Release A Special 'Warlord Of Mars' #100 Celebratory Issue In April

To celebrate 100 issues of Dynamite Entertainment's reimagining of Edgar Rice Burroughs' Barsoom/John Carter stories in their 'Warlord of Mars' comic series (including 'Warlord Of Mars', the various 'Dejah Thoris' titles and more), Dynamite will be releasing a special celebratory 'Warlord of Mars' #100! 

This special squarebound issue is written by Arvid Nelson, Robert Place Napton, and Mark Rahner and features covers by Joseph Michael Linsner, Jay Anacleto (below), Fabiano Neves, Emanuela Lupacchino, and Stephanie Buscema, as well as featuring special bonus material.
"In Warlord of Mars #100, we begin with a story by Robert Napton (Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris), taking place 400 years before John Carter's arrival on Barsoom, where a young Woola discovers an ancient First Born artifact that isn't quite what it seems. 
The story continues by Arvid Nelson (Warlord of Mars), as the artifact is recovered by the Warlord himself many years later. What happens to the good people of Helium as the evil power begins to be unleashed? And what could it mean for the rest of Barsoom? 
Then, in the final chapter by Mark Rahner (Dejah Thoris and the Green Men of Mars), Woola must do the hardest thing of his life: not protect John Carter. The fiercely loyal calot must resist his strongest instincts to save Carter from horrifying brutality - or pay an infinitely worse price."
'Warlord of Mars' #100 is slated for release on April 30, 2014, and will also be available for individual customer purchase through Comixology, iVerse, and Dark Horse Digital.
