Four-Issue Dejah of Mars Series Spinning Off


In a first for Dynamite Entertainment, the publisher is excited for Warlord of Mars #100. What's the first? That would be the fact that the Warlord of Mars series is hitting the century mark. In order to more fully appreciate and celebrate the work, Dynamite Entertainment is planning to offer a four-issue miniseries that picks up exactly where #100 leaves off. Dejah of Mars #1 will be written by Mark Rahner, drawn by Jethro Morales and with covers by Jay Anacleto, Fabiano Neves and Mel Rubi.

In Dejah of Mars #1, John Carter has gone missing. And to find him there's nothing Dejah Thoris won't break. No one she won't hurt. No hornet's nest she won't kick. But the Warlord of Mars stole an important Helium artifact before he disappeared, so not only is the princess on her own this time - she has to get Carter before anyone else does.

"John Carter has rescued Dejah Thoris countless times, and now it's her turn to rescue him," says Rahner. "After everything she's been through - getting kidnapped by Tharks who wanted her for meat, outwitting a terrorist who aimed to ruin the peace, surviving a suicide mission among Warhoons - Dejah Thoris isn't screwing around. She's going to find Carter and make whoever took him pay. And Issus help whoever gets in her way."
