    Actually, i think the usual images of the John Carter universe as much or more from the art of Roy G. Krenkel than by that of Frazetta – in fact, it appears to have been Krenkel who brought Frazetta into the ERB-illustrating field (scroll about halfway down the page to the paragraph next to the cover illo for At the World's Core). Also look here (bottom of page) for ink drawings he did for Canaveral Press's 1960's Burroughs editions.He was also, apparently "instrumental in the design of and was a contributor to the early issues of Jim Warren's Creepy and Eerie magazines (1964 and 1965). Some of those ground-breaking covers by Frazetta had their genesis in Krenkel sketches." (From the page linked above.)Krenkel's work is distinctive, if you know what to look for; while many of his stylistic quirks are similar to those of Frazetta, his characters' faces tend to a sort of cat-like quality – check out this cover for the 1967 Lancer paperback of George O Smith's Highways in Hiding.
