Number 1732: Prisoner of the Tharks
I pulled it out of my collection recently and re-read it. I noticed what Marsh put in the panels. Many of them show abstract art on the walls, even sculpture. The costumes don’t bother me, now. Mars is a cold place (“in fact it’s cold as hell,” according to Bernie Taupin and Elton John), and in a practical sense the near-naked John Carter is sillier than the (presumably warmer) dandy-in-a-cape John Carter.
These scans are from my copy.
From a 2010 Hairy Green Eyeball posting, a UK adaptation of "A Princess of Mars" done comics style. It is called "The Martian".
