Artist Frank Wu embeds Lowellian maps in forthcoming graphic novel

Hugo Award-winning SF&F artist Frank Wu has embedded several of astronomer Percival Lowell’s infamous early 20th-century maps of the canals on Mars in a panel of his forthcoming Guidolon graphic novel.

Speaking of Lowellian maps, I recently stumbled across a neat article from the July 1907 issue of The Bankers’ Magazine that explains how the United States could have used the canals on Mars to enact currency reform.
