I was over at friends house a few days ago, touring his amazing/insane collection of toys and stuff. Lot’s and lots of toys. I think his goal is to have All The Toys. He has what I’d call ( now that I know ) The Ante Room which is amazing as it is, the Secret Room of Everything truly lives up the name I just made up for it. His collection leans heavily on Marvel Characters, Star Wars and too many other franchises to even start naming. It is truly a thing of wonder. (more…)
Other than the new ‘do’ I’m looking forward to a longer story. I’ll still be sticking to getting a trade edition of the series in the long run, but I think I’ll give this one a try. http://www.bleedingcool.com/2015/01/08/enemy-enemy-friend-robert-place-napton-talks-john-carter-special/
Enough of my bitching about crazily priced books that I can’t have, as someone said once, ” I still live !” And I have new John Carter covers to show you. So far I’m quite impressed with all the covers. The first is my favourite and the rendering on the second is excellent. They all get points for not being porny too ! – Jeff
I picked up the second of the John Carter comics, it’s one of my favorite John Carter covers ever. I really like the Marvel style logo, overall color, action and the movie style white ape. It also reminded me of Marvel’s issue 2 as well.
– or, ” I see what you did here.” Not just one but three covers – it makes sense, I often draw figures separately too. Coming Nov 5 Dynamite “John Carter Warlord of Mars”
You can see that I have a new banner cannibalized from my own Thuvia of Mars painting. It’s an indication of my feeling that it’s time to shake things up bit. Barsoomia.org came about during the looooong road to the John Carter of Mars movie. Now that it’s happened, and so many of us are saying ‘please sir, may we have some more ?’ I feel the need to broaden my window. We still live. Dynamite has their new and approved ‘John Carter Warlord of Mars, Calots and Comics and’ – I’m losing track, it’s a really long title but I am looking forward to it. There are the comic strips through edgarriceburroughs.com and perhaps, if Disney releases the reins on the movie rights, more John Carter on screen. I’d really like that. But Barsoom isn’t the only world, and ERB isn’t the only one to write Sword and Planet stories. (more…)
