The streets of London are no place for a woman all on her own. They are, however just fine for a woman wielding a Sword. Dejah Thoris is used to London's dirt, and its rain, but she is growing tired of its people. She and Irene Adler must surely band together to find the Banth and get Thoris back to Barsoom, but to do that, one of them would first have to back down...

    A decent issue for a decent series, though the ending leaves a lot to be desired. Could really have done with more time and showing off the main characters more. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Aug 5, 2015

    The concluding installment of this miniseries may not add all that much overall to the larger Swords of Sorrows storyline, though I'd like to believe the weapon Dejah acquires will have some significance. The book played well to the fish out of water element and that's what I was hoping for in the end. The two women played well on their own in dealing with different worlds, cultures and designs, but I really wish they had more time together. I liked the subplot with Roger-Scott in a lot of ways because it delved into the obsessive nature of the man and how it took him to bigger and bigger things, but also his own end. The book hits things well with the dialogue, especially in the second half here, and Manna's artwork continues to be great overall, though some of it gets lots due to the dark coloring style that's applied to most of Dynamite's books. A fun miniseries overall that runs alongside the larger work. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny Hughes Aug 5, 2015

    Overall, the series has been a diversion to the main story of Swords. I think this has more to do with Dynamite's use of them rather than any slight to any of the creators involved. The purpose of the book, and the tie-ins generally, is to show how these disparate character come to work together. I would have liked to see more connection to the main arc, but I can understand that in today's comic book economic market, if the ties to the main story were stronger, readers wouldn't be able to afford every issue. As it is, readers get to choose their favourite pairing and enjoy a distracting story, whilst waiting for the main event to continue. Read Full Review
