As some of you might have noticed the blog has gotten a new makeover with a brighter look and a more appropriate background. Let me know what you think of it. And now a look at what could have been. A blog called Fortress of Solitude West Coast has a vintage article I think was taken from an old issue of Starlog magazine announcing Ray Harryhausen's Sinbad on Mars http://deathandlifeinthevalley.blogspot.com/2010/01/notice-for-sinbad-on-mars-unrealised.html The article hints the film would have had the standard Sinbad characters-a beautiful princess and an evil sorcerer among them-and that Harryhausen and producer Charles Schneer were planning to "pit their most famous character against the denizens of an Edgar Rice Burroughs-esque Mars." Sounds like it would have been a great film. And yes that's issue 2 of the Sinbad: Rogue of Mars comic book with our hero striking a familiar pose.
