Here's my cover for Dynamite's new series Dejah Thoris second issue.
It's a lot of fun doing those covers. For this one I wanted to echo Frank Frazetta's famous painting of John Carter raising his sword. I thought it was a cute note having Dejah Thoris doing the same on her own cover. Of course I'm not even in a million year able to paint a green martian as well as master Frazetta...but that was fun!
WARLORD OF MARS: DEJAH THORIS #2
Written by Arvid Nelson, art by Carlos Rafael, covers by Arthur Adams, Paul Renaud, Joe Jusko and Ale Garza.
Dejah Thoris is in the hands of the treacherous, conniving and downright sleazy Jeddak of Yorn. Yorn wants to make Dejah his concubine, but death is a thousand times preferable to dishonor for a Martian princess. Yorn had better watch his back, because Dejah is a whole lot more than just a pretty face! He is working to resurrect the ancient evil buried in the catacombs beneath Dejah's city of Helium. Valian, his son, is soft and unassuming, the opposite of his father in every way. But it takes more than muscles to make a hero. Valian's got a few surprises for his father in Dejah Thoris #2: The Awakening!
