The John Carter movie has a tough act to follow — we're used to seeing tons of amazingly thrilling art by masters like Frank Frazetta, showing weird creatures and heroic vistas. Now at last, there's some concept art from the movie that lives up to our dreams of Barsoom.

This John Carter concept art was released exclusively over at It's Art Mag — check out some of our favorites here, and the rest over at the site. The art, by Ryan Church, Michael Kutshe, David Krenz, and Mayes C. Rubeo, gives us a great look at early designs for Tars Tarkas, Dejah Thoris, and much more.
