John Carter Warlord of Mars #15 - Walt Simonson art


John Carter Warlord of Mars v1 #15, 1978 - Unfortunately for this issue, Walt Simonson's pencils become completely buried beyond recognition. The title's regular artist, Rudy Nebres, has a distinctive style that tends to dominate most pencillers. This is painfully evident in this case. That aside, Simonson also struggles with the layouts and general pacing of the story. The final results are disappointing and lackluster. Other artists in this issue include Gil Kane. This is number 1 of 1 John Carter Warlord of Mars issues with Simonson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Simonson or John Carter Warlord of Mars issues.

  1. Ah, but stunningly gorgeous inks by Nebres on the Gil Kane cover.
