Here's my interior artwork for UNDER THE MOONS OF MARS: NEW ADVENTURES OF BARSOOM, a new John Carter of Mars anthology edited by John Joseph Adams. Thanks to the great Joe Monti for bringing me aboard the project and huge congrats to JJA on the book's release day today, courtesy of Simon & Schuster. Well-done, folks. :)

Joe knew that Chris Claremont and John Byrne's run on UNCANNY X-MEN was a favorite of my childhood, so he paired me with Claremont for this antho. His story, "The Ghost That Haunts the Superstition Mountains" was the springboard for my artwork above.

This is awesome, John! And that's awesome that you and Claremont were paired together. Funny how unexpectedly life works like that sometimes...

'Appreciated, Adrian! Yeah, if my 11-year-old self would've known that back in the day, I would've freaked. :)

Splendid John!

Consider spreading some of this new joy over at the multiverse: there's a whole lot of love for Barsoom there at all times, but right now the recent John Carter movie has been getting a very positive reception in the Q&A - Mike loved it for one.

As usual, your image(s? hopefully more than one!) is utterly splendid!
