In 1905 Edwin Arnold created a character that many feel changed the course of Science Fiction and that character's name was Lt. Gullivar Jones. Though its reception was lukewarm at the time of its publication, Arnold's tale of Gullivar's journey to mars and falling in love with a Martian princess is thought by many to have inspired the Martian tales of Edgar Rice Burroughs, written some six years later. Dynamite Entertainment is proud to bring these characters together, telling the story of their first meeting! The time is post Civil War America. Lt. Gullivar Jones, a distinguished Navy officer, is tired of not receiving the promotion he feels he deserves and desperately needs to be able to marry his fiance. While sulking through the streets of New York, Gullivar encounters an aged man and a strange carpet that appears to have originated in the far east. Little does he know that this carpet will become the vehicle that will transport him not only through space but time as well, as he is hurtled into the past, present, and future of John Carter's Barsoom. In the past, Gullivar meets the beautiful Princess Heru, a mysterious Red Woman whose secrets lead him directly to Barsoom's present, where he forges an uneasy alliance with the Warlord of Mars John Carter and his beloved wife Dejah Thoris, all before hurtling into the future where Barsoom faces a threat unlike any it has known before!
