Dynamite Entertainment has announced Leah Williams and Carlos Gomez are teaming for a Barbarella/Dejah Thoris crossover that will arrive in January 2019.
In Barbarella/Dejah Thoris, two heroines from opposite ends of time unite for an otherworldly adventure! Barbarella, the siren of space, meets Dejah Thoris, Princess of Barsoom, and together they must solve a murder mystery that spans time and space in order to find their way home.
“I’ve been workshopping the story with my editor, Matt Idelson—who is Dynamite’s Senior Editor and an all-around comics titan—and it’s been a blast,” said author Leah Williams. “Matt is creative and has really amazing ideas, so being able to bounce ideas off each other while we’re figuring out how to make a tricky time-travel concept really land with readers has been super fun.”
I think this could be a really fun ride, but I can’t wait to see how Williams and Gomez bridge the time gap for ancient Martians and futuristic space traveler.
