    From the get go, I am really enjoying this series. Part of this is that I had low expectations, which all those concerned have totally blown out of the water. The writing is tight, the art is smooth and the colors give the book a heady mix of realism and off world-ness. Moving forward, I would like to see more of the political shenanigans going on in the capital andmore weight given to Valoris who at this point resembles apantomime villain? That's for later issues, as for right now, this book continues to impress as part of Dynamite's female centric range of books. Read Full Review

    Dejah Thoris #3 is where things escalate within the army of Barsoom and within the walls of Helium. No one is safe and that keeps us all at the edge of our seats for what comes next. Read Full Review

    Dejah Thoris has been the strongest of the female-centered relaunch books recently for me with what it does. Frank Barbiere is hitting the story in a way that clicks well for me and feels like it's better plotted and laid out than some other recent works of his that I struggled with while enjoying (Looking at you, Solar!). Dejah herself is solid and engaging and he's building up a good new cast around her that hopefully manages to last a bit rather than just being set up for fodder. Barbiere also makes out really well by having Manna and Hickman on the team as they're bringing this world and characters to life in a great way. There's a wonderful naturalistic feeling to the backgrounds and design and the character designs are spot on in feeling otherworldly but familiar – especially with the color work. I'm definitely excited about this book and hopeful that the first arc leads to some really good stuff beyond it with this as the foundation. Read Full Review
