    I love the original novels and comics from dynamite entertainment and a novelisation series would be cool but I don't see how they can do it. I do love this unvierse.

    I also discovered a book called "John Carter: A Visual Companion: Concept Art from the Motion Picture. 256 pages being released on Feb 7, 2012. You can preorder it from Amazon now. Disney Books is also offering a John Carter of Mars 3D book.

    ^ I honestly don't know as I literally just uncovered it while browsing Amazon. It's very possible that it could be released as a epub or for the nook.

    Yeah, but that was an original story I believe, while JC is based directly of off the book.

    Marvel is currently doing a comic prequel to "John Carter". I think the first issue is out because the November solicits had issue three.

    GOD why there is no need for a prequel for this series.

    I already posted the description of the footage three pages ago Out of My Vulcan Mind. It's the cinemablend article, but I guess your link is more an opinion piece.

    I'm coming in here with no knowledge of the books, but as a newbie I'm liking what I'm seeing.
