Background

Mars emerged from the work of Chuck Renslow and Dom Orejudos and their photography business, Kris Studio. Renslow and Orejudos also published a Kris Studio catalogue, featuring photographs of bodybuilders available for purchase.

In the early 1960s, they were approached by H. Lynn Womack, who wished to publish a physique magazine that more directly targeted the leather and the S&M community. Renslow and Orejudos (who created illustrations under the name Etienne) edited and designed every issue of Mars, with completely editorial control.

Mars, 13 (May 1965), was featured in Pink Mince #12 — The Stroke.
