Sword & Sandal Inspired Art

Art by Boris Vallejo; based on the John Carter of Mars stories by Edgar Rice Burroughs.

OK it might not be a legit "Sword & Sandal" as the story takes place ON Mars but the planet Mars has a lot of sand there. Basically it's an earth story transposed on Mars, or in this case Barsoom. Besides, STAR WARS is really a PEPLUM in space so PEPLUMS and SCI-FI are close cousins.
