The John Carter of Mars that Could Have Been

I am really rooting for Andrew Stanton's version to be amazing, but I have to admit from what I've seen this version by director Kerry Conran looks much better, much more visionary.


  1. It looks very good, Thomas, but seems to have as much Flash Gordon's Mongo in it as it does Barsoom: I don't get as much of a "dry desert world" vibe as I expect....


  2. grodog: by "Flash Gordon" you mean that as an enormous compliment, right? :)

  3. Lots to like there. Then again I really enjoyed Sky Captain.
    Any updates, Thomas, on "Warriors of the Red Planet"?

  4. captain jack: deep in layout, deep in making art. it's fairly ambitious. i will say the text Al wrote is FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC. I'm so inspired, so I want to do it justice.

    more previews will be forthcoming!
