Since most of you enjoy action/adventure, I tend to focus on something that falls into that category. This week we’re looking at the 1936 attempts at creating a series of theatrical features starring Edgar Rice Burroughs’ John Carter of Mars. As you’ll see, it’s a real shame that we didn’t get a chance to see this in completed form. It looks GORGEOUS. It’s only a couple of minutes long but it will really whet your appetite for what could have been…

Our accompanying artwork is from Dynamite’s Dejah Thoris series and is by the talented artwork Paul Renaud. She looks quite spiffy, I think.
