Welcome to Barsoom

While researching the previous post I came across all manner of images portraying the world of Barsoom, Edgar Rice Burroughs' Mars. I thought I'd share some of them with you. Some I like, some I don't but they're all bursting with energy and passion. Everyone loves illustrating Barsoom. To start off, here's one by Joe Jusko:

I could create a whole blog just of illustrations of Barsoom ... but, thankfully, Damon Orrell has done it for me. Go visit his Art of Barsoom blog. It's a treat!
