This is from a spoof of Edgar Rice Burroughs' Mars stories that I've been writing. The Mars stories almost always have the brave, infallible hero rescuing the princess, who is somewhere in the running for "Most Beautiful Martian Woman". Of course, my story, set in a Barsoom that has become hideously commercialized, has as its hero Rathis, a lowly office drone and sad sack whose most heroic deed was fixing the TV in the breakroom. He has a stroke of luck when Asmara, the daughter of his boss, takes a liking to him, but then she gets kidnapped, and he is forced to rescue her (or at the very least find a willing quest-subcontractor), facing off against the green savages, white apes, and Republicans (who arrived in Barsoom after Obama attempted to banish them to Mars.) It'll probably end up being a rip-off of Discworld if I ever actually make any progress in it, but maybe not.

I'm pretty pleased with how this one turned out. The real coup I think is Rathis' horrified expression, contrasted with the look of resignation on Asmara's face.

Man, I love this! Great image and the whole concept is terrific. Way back when I was in high school, I was big into E.R.B. and I think it's very ripe material for satire. I really hope you develop this concept, as it's a great idea!!

He's a Martian. I know they didn't have TVs in the books, but Martian technology has advanced considerably in the 90-something years since, and so they've developed the "viewcube"...

As a big fan of the ERB Mars books, this hit me as particularly funny. Great job! Loved the scenario behind it.

Is Rathis an Earthman who stared at Mars long enough to find himself mysteriously transported there? Or is he a native? If an Earthman, he should still be strong enough to at least hold his own with even the most evil of office machinery.

Regardless... Rathis may have his hands full with the Republicans, since they tend to be the only ones with balls for a fight...
