John Carter of Mars-John Coleman Burroughs-1941

Okay,'s the real thing! The art here, derivative of Alex Raymond and Hal Foster, is apparently by ERB's son, John Coleman Burroughs who also did the John Carter newspaper strip and illustrated his father's later books.

Eh, people keep over-dressing Dejah Thoris!

JCB wasn't a great artist, but he could be pretty good, and better than what this work might suggest. However, I don't mean to be dismissive of the art hear; it's not bad for its era.
