You can learn more details about this old comics project of mine if you click on this link ( you can also download a free pdf for this book ).
Now the idea here is to post my story , page by page as many people like to scroll up and down to read this things as it is now and not everyone downloads pdfs at random just to check stuff up.

ONCE UPON A TIME ON MARS : THE ADVENTURES OF PRINCE ZIPH” – VOLUME ONE ; FANTASY / SCI-FI COMICS ; (2009 Version : Traditional Watercolors / Acrylics / Color Pencils ).

This “ONCE UPON A TIME ON MARS” was one of my last personal projects created entirely in traditional medium; it took me 5 years to complete this ( between my other professional graphic design work for a software house ) and it was created , drawn and painted with real color pencils, acrylics and watercolors.
This 2009 version created between 2004 and 2009 was actually a “new” version for this idea which I had in my imagination since I was 17 back in 1987 when I did the first version.

When the internet came along , I discovered, “Coast to Coast AM”; “Art Bell” ; “Richard Hoagland” ; “George Noory” ; “Graham Hancock” and all you can imagine if you know what I´m talking about and all that stuff started to morph into a new version of my old fantasy “The Hobbit style” adventure. My old Thorondor world became part of an ancient Mars and so this new ONCE UPON A TIME ON MARS was born.
I created this just for fun, to experiment, to learn and to also use some of the images in my portfolio and it worked because it got me many commissions at the time when I was going fulltime treelance with this illustration thing.
So anyway, here´s BOOK 1.

I plan to remake this and correct all the narrative / pacing issues one of these days in full digital , but for now here´s “the original”. Enjoy ; ( English version revised by Will Kallif from StormTheCastle.com (Thanks Will) ).
This entire work was done without any planning whatsoever. I had no idea what was going to happen in the next page as I never plan any of my stories and so this is a good example of what usually comes out… good and bad. 😉
I´ll post Book 2 later. For now here´s the start of the adventure.
