    I can't wait to read issue #1, and Amy Chu is doing a great job of evolving this princess into a bad-ass. Fans of the classic written by Edgar Price Burroughs will appreciate this version of Dejah Thoris and translates well to new readers. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Kevin Given Jan 10, 2018

    Amy Chu has done it again! I have seen a trend lately in the comic books I've been reviewing. Many of them deal with childhood and innocence and having that innocence taken away abruptly and shattered. This, of course is the theme in Dejah Thoris # 0. Dejah sees the conditions in the Palace prison and is visibly upset. So upset that she can't eat. Her good nature leads her to want to do something about it, but what she does leads her to trust the wrong person and she just might have put her home world in jeopardy"to be continued!

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jan 10, 2018

    I don't know a thing about Edgar Rice Burroughs' beloved book “A Princess of Mars”, but Dejah Thoris #0 felt like motivation to look up what that book is to better get to know this character. She's fierce and she is compassionate for someone who just may save her planet or cause more trouble simply trying. If there is something actually following this #0 issue, then they nailed the motivation to pick it up. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Jan 15, 2018

    A good taste of what's to come when the series begins. The story is good and the art is serviceable. I'm a big fan of Edgar Rice Burroughs's science fiction characters and with Chu charting Dejah's path I'm on board for this ride. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Jan 10, 2018

    This modern take on a century old character is as fresh and vibrant as it needs to be while telling a tale with a legitimate classic feel. Both fans of the original and various incarnations since as well as the new audience will find a bold and entertaining Princess worth following. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jan 10, 2018

    Amy Chu puts all the right pieces into the pot and it's coming together well based on what's here so far and I'm definitely curious to see what twists and turns are ahead, particularly of Qualano is on board for a good run of the art. I've really enjoyed his work elsewhere and it fits in very well here, whether with young Dejah or the teenage one that's ready to get out into the world. With a bit more worldbuilding in terms of visual design while still keeping things manageable I think this'll be a great looking book that helps to carry and elevate the stories forward.

    There's a lot at stake for our heroine and her ravaged planet which really makes the case for Dejah Thoris #0simple to sell. What we have is an accessible start to a new volume that journeys to the past in order to bring along both new and seasoned followers, so by all means if you're looking for a reason to go back to Barsoomthen give this issue a shot. Fair warning: you'll probably end up adding it to your pull-list. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Brandy Dykhuizen Jan 15, 2018

    Like the opening shot of Lost in Translation minus the metaphor, Dejah Thoris #0 is a slow, long linger on a set of transparent panties. The girl's (and the imprisoned animal's arses) are front-and-center, while the menfolk sensibly hide their haunches behind flowing capes and loincloths. What could have been intriguing, coming-of-age storytelling thus turns into yet another exhausting narrative challenge " how to overextend a monologue for maximum number of T&A-highlighting poses. Sigh. Read Full Review

    I didn't know much about Dejah Thoris. Each time I tried to read a story about her or Carter I wasn't convinced.
    This time this a prequel story. I liked the way the story was told, but I find Dejah extremely naïve, she is young so that may be easily explained. For a issue 0 that give me the desire to try a little more.
    That may be my entry point for mars.

    Cover - A good cover nice, but not related to the story. 1/2
    Writing - A good starting point 2/3
    Arts - I liked Qualano art. Very sweet. Despite her lack of cloth, she didn't appear sexualized. 3/3
    Feelings - Amy Chu convinced me for a time on Red Sonja. Did the lightning will strike a second time and for more time ? 2/2
