An all-new vision of A Princess of Mars! Eisner Award-winning writer Chuck Brown (Bitter Root) and stellar artist Emiliana Pinna (Red Sonja) present Dehah Thoris, a tale set before the events of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ first classic novel. Young Princess Dejah has lived a sheltered existence, growing up behind vast palace walls, guarded by Helium’s greatest warriors. But when the entire royal family is attacked by horrific Kaldane Martians, Dejah narrowly escapes into the wilds of Barsoom, with no recourse but to strike out on a quest to save her kingdom…
Judging from the first issue the covers are, as usual, the only thing worthy of the comic! The interior art is the sort of minimalistic anime/manga style crap that has become normalized in the past 10 years or so (and Dynamite has led the charge!) … the artist has no sense of anatomy, pathetic!
