Thuvia, Maid of Mars
When unknown raiders seized Thuvia, Princess of Ptarth, the chief suspect was Carthoris, son of the Warlord of Mars. Yet only Carthoris could rescue the women who had spurned his love. Carthoris saw Thuvia dragged to the foot of the rostrum. He saw Hortan Gur address her. He could not hear the Torquasian jeddak!s words, nor Thuvia's reply, but it must have angered the green monster, for Carthoris saw him leap toward the prisoner, striking her a cruel blow across the face. Then the son of John Carter, Warlord of Barsoom, went mad. His half-Earth muscles sent him in enomous leaps and bounds toward the vile creature who had struck the women he loved. Before the green warriors of Hortan Gur could respond, there came from the beleaguered city across the plains a fearsome sound-and from the gates issued a threat far more deadly than the swordsman advancing upon them!

Preliminary Art

Frontispiece

As the great thoat and his rider hurtled past, Carthoris swung his long-sword in a mighty cut.Another figure sprang from a cluster of dense foliage.
For but an instant the searchlight halted upon Thuvia of Ptarth.With a savage cry of triumph, Thar Ban disappeared down the black canyon of the Avenue of Quays.
Between them and the city raged a terrific battle.The man turned dreamy eyes sleepily upon them.
Page 80 | Alt                               .

A steel blade pierced the very center of his heart.I prefer to die standing, she replied.
The jeddak of Lothar sank senseless to the marble floor.Stay, my chieftain, Stay -- I love you!

Frazetta cover art (click)
With a savage cry of triumph, Thar Ban vaulted to the back of his throat, Thuvia of Ptarth still in his arms.Carthoris stepped between Thuvia and the banth, his sword ready to contest the beast's victory over them.Thewed like some giant god was Carthoris of Helium, yet in the clutches of these creatures he was helpless as a frail woman.
