Indexer Notes

Loosely adapted from the novel "The Gods of Mars" by Edgar Rice Burroughs. This was the last John Carter story in Weird Worlds and the plot shows signs of being hurriedly put to an end. Artwork uncredited, but Amendola suggested by Classic Comics forum at CBR and confirmed by The Comic Reader 97.
