Meet Maurice Whitman‘s alluring Martian woman, Ylla, a captivating character whose name pays homage to Ray Bradbury’s iconic tale from The Martian Chronicles. With her striking green hue, Ylla brings a touch of otherworldly charm to the pages of this classic comic.

The fascination with Mars stretches back decades, with Edgar Rice Burroughs‘ Barsoom stories paving the way as early as 1912, featuring the legendary John Carter of Mars.

But that’s not all – the comic also features a selection of old Planet Comics reprints, transporting readers back to the golden age of science fiction with tales of daring escapades and extraterrestrial wonders.

So, if you’re ready to embark on an interplanetary journey filled with intrigue and excitement, join John Hunter and his fellow Marsmen as they explore the mysteries of the Red Planet. It’s a thrilling ride you won’t want to miss!
