On Barsoom, the Princess of Helium is missing, and Irene Adler is the number one suspect. As Adler struggles to maintain her liberty and capture her own quarry, there are now two Martians roaming the dark, puddled streets of London, and Princess Dejah Thoris is not dressed for the weather. An official tie-in to the epic Swords of Sorrow crossover event, written by acclaimed writer Leah Moore (Doctor Who, Sherlock Holmes).

    Though it feels a bit lacking in the larger context to the Swords of Sorrows event itself, what we get here continues the fish out of water storyline that we've had and it does it well. Leah Moore definitely makes both characters more engaging than I expected, particularly as I've spent years struggling to connect with Dejah Thoris, and it provides for some fun, if busy and lightly chaotic, with the people that they're pursuing and dealing with. Francesco Manna's artwork definitely works for me here, especially with some of the faces that he comes up with, and the colorist does a great job to bring his work to life, though like a lot of Dynamite books it all just feels a bit darker and heavier than it needs to be. But there's a good quality about it all that's got me interested in it all, and hopeful that Moore might someday get to tackle either of these characters in new series or one-shots. Read Full Review

    Moore and Manna have put together a smart and exciting but all too short miniseries. It's one of the best-written tie-ins to the main Swords of Sorrow storyline. This penultimate issue sets up what's sure to be an incredible conclusion. Read Full Review

    A strong series with two good main characters, a good solid read that isn't too bogged down by the events of others in the series. Read Full Review
