DifferencesEdit

There are a number of differences between this work and the original "A Princess of Mars". Many of the differences in story are minor, but the difference in visuals are very drastic. The green martians are no longer giant, nor do they have four arms, and their arms have claws instead of hands. The white apes are now covered in hair and also lack four arms, instead having only two.
