Simian Saturday

Here's the cover from an old Marvel Comics adaptation of John Carter of Mars.Featuring a big white Martian ape.  This one goes out to Clovis Cithog from the Jasoomian Dreams Blog.


  1. Great Martian White Ape cover with art from one of the comic book masters Gil Kane. Thanks, Mr. Brutorz Bill!

  2. Your killin' me, I just went to a comic shop today to pick up more bags for my comics. Of course I had to look at a few comix to and, thus picked up a copy of J.C.W.M. #16.

  3. thanks for the shout out,
    here is ERBs original description

    “hairless except for an enormous shock of bristly hair upon its head . . . The thing which more resembled our earthly men than it did the Martians I had seen, held me pinioned to the ground with one foot, while it jabbered and gesticulated at some answering creature behind me. The other, which was evidently its mate, soon came toward us, bearing a mighty stone cudgel with which it evidently intended to brain me. . .

    "The creatures were about ten to fifteen feet tall, standing erect, and had like the green Martian, an intermediary set of arms or legs, midway between the upper and lower limbs. Their eyes were close together and non-protruding; their ears were high set, but more laterally located than those of the Martians, while their snouts and teeth were striking like those of our African gorilla.”

  4. Look at this:

    Owlbear + Ape!
