For my money, Frank Frazetta will always be the king of fantasy artwork - I have admired his style ever since I first laid eyes on the Conan books back in the late 60s. (And the only true inheritor of his crown is, again in my opinion, Brom, but that is another story!)
Having got that out of the way, this volume does contain some very good artists that do come quite close. Joe Jusko - his work graces the cover - and Lucio Parillo are the two who have the most 'painterly' style whereas the others fall between very well executed images to the just, well, tacky! Large breasts do not always necessarily an attractive woman make!? I felt that in some of the imagery, Dejah Thoris would, in reality, have fallen flat on her face, let alone leaping about decapitating Tharks etc.
There is a tendency in these pages - more by artists depicting the aforementioned over-endowed women! - to have 2 images of Dejah Thoris: one suitably draped and one categorised as 'risque', i.e. topless.Read more ›
Persist, though Motal, through this Martian abundance of nubile flesh AND you will discover the prolific art of Joe Jusko who provides enough man flesh to almost counterbalance the pneumatic bounty of Barsoom as well as providing an anatomically correct Dejah ( no belly button as Martians are hatched from eggs). There is also the subtly dynamic cover designs of Paul Renaud; the sumptuously delicate & detailed illustrations of Jay Anacleto; and the work of Fabiano Neves who seems to impart some personality to the apparel bereft heroine.
A lot of Art here and a well produced book that could have done with some editing, but delve deep enough through its pages and you will find Beauty & Design.
