Tarzan-John Carter: Warlords Of Mars (1996)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger

Tarzan-John Carter: Warlords Of Mars (1996) This four-issue comic series has Tarzan's "spirit" transported to Mars after a run-in with some German enemies in 1945. It's quickly established that he's near immortal, which explains how he still looks thirty years old. Once on Mars he kills a Banth and is captured by Master Assassin Purid Mos, who has her eyes on the ape man. She tries to seduce him but that doesn't work, so she has her scientists brain wash him with a new mind control device so that he thinks he's an assassin. She wants revenge on her enemy, John Carter, so she send Tarzan to his kingdom to kill him. Before he can get there in his one-man flyer he's caught in a storm and crashes, just in time to help a four armed ape. He can communicate with the creature because he can "speak the language of the Mangani everywhere". In fact, he and the ape enter the palace at Helum together. Tarzan first meets John Carter's son, Cathoris and has a sword fight with the green Tars Tarkas before he's introduced to Dejah Thoris and ulimately, John Carter. It turns out Tarzan has been faking his brain-washed state but for some reason John Carter wants to kill him. He fears that if Tarzan goes back to Earth that he'll tell mankind about it and then the red planet will be overrun by human colonists.

This is an interesting story, though it's not nearly as good as either the Tarzan/Carson of Venus or Tarzan/Predator at The Earth's Core, which were released around the same time.
