Interview with 1980's Mars comic creator Mark Wheatley

Earlier this year, longtime illustrator and comic creator Mark Wheatley talked with Brazilian graphic designer and university professor Octavio Aragão. In a wide-ranging conversation, Wheatley discussed his 30+ years of hard work, his working style and how his graphic novel Mars ended up in the hands of Hollywood director James Cameron, probably serving as uncredited inspiration for the recent blockbuster Avatar (2009). 

Mars was first published back in the mid-1980's and then collected in a single graphic novel edition by IDW in 2005.
