Finnish Princess of Mars Comics


All credit for this goes to the site Marooned http://sffbooksonmars.blogspot.com/ which posted this. Back in 1991 Finnish artist Kari T. Leppänen got published his own comic book version of A Princess of Mars in the magazine Portti and now has posted the series online and with English translation at http://www.karileppanencomics.fi/burroughs-page.htm. The artwork is pretty good and the story follows the novel very closely. The site also has some other Barsoom inspired work by Leppänen and is definitely worth checking out for fans of John Carter. (A quick warning-John Carter does flash his rear so use your best judgment. I don't want to hear if you got fired because your we're checking out buck naked Virginians at work.)
