I mentioned before about a new Dejah Thoris title coming from Dynamite and in this interview with Gail Simone we get confirmation that it’s landing in February and also a little more information about it:
We gave Dejah a whole new story here. It’s in continuity, she’s not a different character, but she’s forced to put away everything and everyone she knows, and go live incognito as an entry-level soldier in the middle of nowhere. Of all the story directions, this is the one I think could be a real game-changer for the character. What happens when a princess who has everything, has to leave it all behind, even her name, in shame? To go fight a border war in a desolate land?
The fact that it’s “in continuity” is interesting and leads me to wonder what effect that will have on the John Carter: Warlord of Mars series that I’m also reading – is that story going to reflect Dejah’s apparent disappearance from Helium and if so, how’s that going to affect Carter?
Interesting times ahead, I think.
