Edgar Rice Burroughs contributed an incomparable oeuvre to popular fiction across his Barsoom saga and other works. The central characters of John Carter, Dejah Thoris and their family have entertained and inspired across generations. Dynamite is proud to have woven our own threads into that fabric with nearly a decade of fan favorite comics starring John and Dejah. Including the just concluded Dejah Thoris from writer Amy Chu and artist Pasquale Qualano and the upcoming Barbarella/Dejah Thoris from Leah Williams and Germán García.
“Dejah Thoris is one of the most iconic female characters in the world and has stood the test of time, a testament to Edgar Rice Burrough’s storytelling as she is still around over 100 years later. That’s a monumental milestone that blows past the legends of our industry and Dynamite is proud to continue that legacy,” said Nick Barrucci, CEO/Publisher of Dynamite. “Fans are going to love these cards, featuring some of the best artists we have worked with over the years. Plus the one-of-a-kind sketch cards are the ultimate collectible for Dejah fans.”
“We’re happy to see one of the first heroines of science fiction and fantasy, Dejah Thoris, Princess of Helium, honored by this impressive collection of trading cards highlighting top genre artists. Dynamite Entertainment has done it again!” said Scott Tracy Griffin, Director of Special Projects, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc.
This Kickstarter campaign is only available for a limited time, so don’t miss it!
