Chinese cover art: Barsoom

Check out this Flickr gallery of beautiful Chinese cover art portraying the classic Barsoom series of novels written by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Interestingly, the covers include English subtitles. Note that one of the covers is mistitled The Master Mind of Mars (1928). It should be titled A Fighting Man of Mars (1931). Additions or corrections are welcome!

I really like the Gook ( or Cook ) of Mars as well as the Swards of Mars.

Could be an interesting opportunity for a young hungry editor to relocate to China and work for one of the premiere publishing firms.
