"Mars of Future Past" is an attempt to tell a rather complex short story ("Dark They Were, and Golden-Eyed" by Ray Bradbury) over almost 100 pages only in pictures and without text.

The story is about a man who regrets his relocation to Mars with his family, as well as the transformation of fellow earthlings in Martians and the resulting discomfort.

The illustrations visualize this physical as well as psychic journey, with their style clearly refering to the imaginations and representations of the colonisation of Mars in the fifties and sixties, to a Mars of a future past.
