Dejah Thoris has proclaimed her love for John Carter, but the despicable Warlord of Zodanga has forced her to promise she will marry the Zondangan prince. A Martian woman may not back out of such a pledge, and she may not marry her husband-to-be’s killer. John Carter will need an army to change things now. If he can help Tars Tarkas seize control of the Tharks, he might have just that — but Zodanga’s not going down without a fight!

Monstrosis #1
MONSTERS! Giant monsters to be exact. Big bug-eyed monsters in the grand tradition of Jack Kirby and all of the comics we used to know and love. One of the oddest comics you will ever read, Monstrosis follows our favorite hero Doris Danger as she delves deep into the mystery of the giant monsters that seem to be everywhere.
Written and illustrated by Chris Wisnia, people love Monstrosis and its odd, quirky humor.

Rating: ★★★☆☆

MAJOR SPOILERS POLL OF THE WEEK
This Major Spoilers Poll of the Week comes to us from Otter Disaster, the mind behind the Major Spoilers Adventures webcomic series that you can read every Friday, right here, on this site. But, more importantly, it’s lunch time, and the topic of fast food usually comes up around Stately Spoilers Mansion – especially when it comes to those delicious crispy potatoes we call Freedom Fries (not really).
A few months ago, Wendy’s changed the way they serve up their carbohydrate, chemical coated, deep fried potatoes.

VOTE!

Which Wendy’s Fries do you prefer?
