    If you like science fiction & fantasy I highly recommendthat you read this series. If you haven't read this yet there are only three issues out now. A zero prelude issue that's only twenty-five cents, followed by issue one and now number two. Pick up this Dejah Thoris series while you still can! You won't be disappointed. Read Full Review

    The story is getting pretty intense. Things from the last 2 issues are all falling into place. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Mar 7, 2018

    Where it was hard to say where this book was taking us after the events of the first issue, Dejah Thoris #2 has begun to put things into perspective and start building a story off of Dejah's misadventures. She was bound to deal with some obstacles, and while one did disappoint in the beginning of the issue, the familiar face to follow was a great step forward. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Mar 7, 2018

    The series is working through a storyline that I like overall with the search for Ephysium and I really do like that it delves into the city of Thurd that the greens have taken over, providing nods to the Orovars that once dominated the world. But at the same time we're going through a familiar hero's journey structure that while not bad doesn't feel like it's really engaging as strongly as it should. Part of it is that I know I'm reading about a younger Dejah than the one I've been seeing the last few years but I also kind of expected a bit more out of her considering the world they live in, even with her father being as protective as he had. There's lots to like here and I'm convinced that Sajad has a cope of Dune in his loincloth that he reads regularly. Read Full Review

    Generally speaking, Dejah Thoris is a decent comic book to follow. It offers some great artwork and a solid foundation of a storyline reviewer will be interested in. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Mar 7, 2018

    Issue two is a little less playful and absurd than the first issue but it adds a promise for a more involved and epic story. Dejah Thoris is becoming more of a leader than she ever imaged and her growth comes at a heavy price greater than he hoped to pay. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Mar 7, 2018

    Dejah Thoris #2 is a decently fun sci-fi/fantasy action comic. While the lead character is drowned out by the supporting cast, there is still some enjoyment to be had in watching Martians fight a giant white ape. I can recommend it to fans of the franchise and anyone who is out for a bit of fun. Feel free to try it. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Mar 7, 2018

    Qualano’s art and Pinto’s colors are a bright spot in an otherwise drab second issue. Everything they do simply jumps off of the page. The fluidity of the art is also quite impressive and unique enough to make the comic stand out. No real complaints on this front. Read Full Review
