    Word Of The Nerd - Edward Wendt Dec 10, 2019

    Though not flawless, Dejah Thoris #1 is a really good start for the new series. The character is presented in a modern way, and the heavier topic is not avoided but, rather, embraced. As the stories of John Carter exist in the public realm anyone can really take them on, but the creative team here owns a new Dejah Thoris, and one better than we've seen before. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Dec 11, 2019

    I've really enjoyed a number of Dejah Thoris interpretations over the last few years and this one looks to tickle a particular fancy. I like that the family is out of power but still a threat, one that looks close to being quashed no less as others want to ensure their plans unfold without her interference. I'm curious to see how well the Tharks will be handled as they go through their own changes. I really want more on Dejah's family and to touch upon some of what happened that has sent John away, though I suspect it'll be little more than a nod and a "given" of something that's happened. With some solid artwork from Georgiev and a busy and verbose script from Abnett, the opening installment sets all the main foundations with room for so much more to be introduced. Definitely one to watch for. Read Full Review

    Truth be told I'm a very shallow reader and will readily admit I picked up Dejah Thoris #1 because the cover was absolutely gorgeous. Beautiful cover aside, this is my first time actually consuming any material set within the John Carter from Mars Landscape.

    Every concept presented in the comic is foreign to me aside from seeing the character occasionally in pinups.

    The story does very little to fill in the blanks and due to the presentation of the comic, I felt like I was jumping into the middle of a story arc rather than the beginning. Because of the lack of any recap, the story is locked off from the highest marks in this review. What I can say is that the comic is solid and that if you do have prior knowledge of t more
