John Carter: World of Mars black and whites

Mornin’ – was just snooping around the intertubes when I found these black and whites here at http://www.acomicbookblog.net/2011/07/john-carter-sketches-of-mars-marvel.html I don’t really know why he has them, but I felt I needed to liberate them for all Barsoomian’s to see. They certainly give us yet another look at costuming and characters. – Jeff

    if this is what we are going to be seeing in the movie (since this is a prequal comic that is likely) I am going to be a very happy man

  2. Yea it has a nice real world vibe while still being Barsoom. The green martians look concrete and not too outlandish and the Zodangan costuming fits the parameters while not just being to 2 straps across the chest and a loincloth.

      the helmets sharp angles remind me of the 1977 zodangans from Marvs Warlord comics

      in a weird way though!

      you see, the Zodangans in those comics for . . whatever reason have pointy ears . . . . the helmets here remind me of that trait

        I guess it isnt sharp angles. . . its just the sharpness of it

        the shape . . okay I am dumb I know

  3. Remember that Stanton started with Barsoom in those comics 🙂

      which might also explain some of the mild similarities with the greens attire aswell! (probably just because they adapted from teh same thing though)

      So far everything from world of mars . . . has reminded me of those old comics . . . and the movie too now that I think about it . . . which . . . those are some of my all time favorite comics 😛

      hmmmmm

      Well . . . there would be only one way to confirm that comics influence on the movie project

      is if something exclusive to those comics was mentioned, any of the minor creatures or cities added

      oh god .. . if they mentioned zeere or marahn I would go nuts right there in the theater 😛 I would be cheering like a fool

      Assuming the thoats appearance was an intentional combination of those two obscure versions of the beast . . . then it is safe to assume they are drawing inspiration from other derivative sources

      I feel like this movie is going to blow my mind in unexpected ways 😛
