    I don't recall them ever meeting. Wolverine did cross Conan and Red Sonja in the old 'What if' series, issue 16. I liked that issue quite a bit.

    I don't recall Dejah's age was ever given in the books. Burroughs hints that Carter could be of an unknown age as he doesn't remember being younger than 30 or so. I sometimes wonder if the Mars tales are meant to take place in the distant past relative to Earth and that John Carter traveled not only across space but time as well.

    well just finished a princess of mars now onto the gods of mars. I can't wait for the movie so looking forward to it. the director called the movie historical martian acturacte. I hope he's right and it comes to be a great movie and as acurate to the book as possible. and nothing like the traci lords movie.

    all so can't wait for the for the conan movie next week.

    Yeah, I don't know the character, yet, but the movie looks really cool and it seems to have gotten good reviews. I'm probably going to check out Solomon and some of Howard's other characters if I like the Conan. Most of his characters sound pretty cool.

    Did you here that Marvel is going to be doing a John Carter of Mars (movie, not books) prequel comic book series?

    I thought Dynamite entertainment had rights for the series.

    Marvel has the official rights and the support of Burroughs estate. since the first few Barsoom novels are public domain Dynamite, or anyone really, can adapt those and do what they want.
