Run for your lives, or you’ll be up to your armpits in Martians! Not really, but Jeff and Brynna DO dive head-first into the world of Mars as presented by Edgar Rice Burroughs in his book A Princess of Mars, which was recently adapted into the film John Carter, directed by Andrew Stanton and dumped into theatres by the Walt Disney Company.
