WARLORD OF MARS No. 4 by JoeJusko WARLORD OF MARS No. 4 by JoeJusko
Dynamite was kind enough to let me paint a wraparound (front & back) cover for issue #4! LOVED painting the Martian "lions" called Banths.

Hope you continue to illustrate Barsoom. You really bring that world to life. Wouldnt it be exciting if someone made a picture of the Barsoomian tree of life?

I love how the banths remind me of Frazetta's cover to "Thuvia, Maid of Mars". It's a thin line between homage and rip-off. I see this as the very definition of homage. :) Fantastic picture!

ok i love this . . . but half thecovers have features big cats with who i assume is dejah thoris

dejah thoris has nothing to do with banths

there is a martian princess that controls banths . . . but she wouldnt be directing them to kill john carter

to someone well read in the series this is maddeningly confusing

If John Carter hadn't pointed at the crystals, I'd say he asked his princess: "Are they house trained?" ;)

The eyes on those lions are super-creepy, in a good way. And as always, your figures (animal or human) have such weight to them. The lions are massive! Beautiful work.
