Beautiful Burroughs Prints 

If you haven’t see these yet you’re in for a treat.  Matt Taylor 0f Black Dragon Press does a lot of literary themed art, and he does it well . The prints are large 18″ X  24″ and printed on fine stock. They are available through www.edgarriceburroughs.com.com or his own site at  http://blackdragonpress.bigcartel.com. – Jeff 


Andrew Stanton’s ‘John Carter’ talk at Google.

 

I don’t know how I missed this, maybe it was more “I’ll watch it later” than missed, but I’m glad that I finally caught up with it. Some of that would be reminiscing the good old times, but it was fun to hear a new take on the production as well. I still want my Woola stuffy, but I am grateful the movie exists at all. – Jeff


The Abs are Back

  • and that means a new ERB movie ! Images and a teaser poster are finally released on The Legend of Tarzan. I’m really looking forward to this. Yate’s Harry Potter movies were excellent, powerful and moving, so I’m expecting good things here. Skarsgård looks rather Taylor Kitsh(ish) in the poster between the hair and the eyes. As I’d mentioned on facebook, they did play brothers in Battleship.  More from i09  – Jeff

Thuvia of Mars: the Movie

Thuvia of Mars poster SMAs always, there’s an ongoing debate between the Reboot John Carter and the Sequels Only crowds. I’d love to see Stanton’s Gods and Warlord of Mars movies. Maybe I’d finally get a Woola toy too. I strongly suspect that
the trilogy as whole would stand as a major accomplishment and success as opposed to John Carter on its own. That the shuffling of the pieces that Stanton has shown with John Carter wouldn’t be such an issue with a complete trilogy. Anyways, that’s not happening tomorrow and neither is a reboot, that we know of.

Abraham Sherman, a long time hardcore Barsoomian who has written and excellent ‘Princess of Mars’ screenplay (on spec) has had some things to say about the reboot/sequel thing that is good reading. You should check them out at Back to Barsoom and The John Carter Files.

My toss into the fray, separate of my wanting MORE is to suggest a step to the side with a film adaptation of Thuvia, Maid of Mars. Thuvia stands at the post trilogy point (more…)


More Carter Comics !

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

Martian League round 2 – updated

Guardians

Feb 9/15  The Martian Legion – Jeff let’s it go….. I have a few online conversations and and Bob Zeuschner’s review  to help me along. I no longer have a need to fork out for even the $200.00 edition. If a nice $25-$50 edition ever shows up I’ll get one for sure. Baptists on Barsoom kinda broke that it for me.

This Martian League thing still bothers me this morning. Yea it’s all wrapped around the fact that I want it and that I really can’t justify $200 on it. My wife bought me the Guardians of Galaxy art book for Christmas. It was $56 Canadian, 330 pages full color, a truly excellent movie art book. Yea I know it’s different economics, but you know what I’m thinking.
