Writer Leah Moore talks about wrapping up Swords of Sorrow: Dejah Thoris & Irene Adler #3. Cover art by Jay Anacleto

SoSDejahIrene03CovAAnacleto

BYRON BREWER: Leah, it is obvious you are having fun with this team up. Are you telling the story you started out to tell?

LEAH MOORE: I think so, although stories tend to veer off when you least expect it, so I think possibly I had a more rigid story in mind, and then it kind of took over. I think I planned it to be more fighty than it turned out, but that was because every time I got the characters nearly into a fight, they kept talking instead. Not sure what it means, but I really enjoyed writing it. I’m a lover not a fighter, so maybe that’s the thing. My hands just refuse to type it.

BB: What is the most surprising thing to come out to you about either one of these characters while writing the story.

LM: Dejah Thoris being totally unflappable and cutting right to the chase. I think I’d possibly written her off as a rather shallow decorative character, but then I wrote her, and had to think what went on inside her, and then she wrote herself. She’s totally self-assured, and not overwhelmed by interplanetary travel. Who knew?

BB: Do you think participating in a crossover event like this will influence the way you structure stories in the future? Is this your first “event”?

LM: It’s my first proper “event,”yes. I’ve written a lot of crossovers, and lots of crazy Victorian romps, and even lots of books with women as the leads, but this was all three, and thanks to all the other fantastic books in the event, it’s been a bit higher profile than some of our other stuff. It might change how I structure future stories, by making me ensure the structure is all there at the start, and leave less to chance. I have a habit of nailing down a bunch of points and then finding my way between them, with varying degrees of success, so maybe I need to be more meticulous up front. Maybe not. Maybe I’ll do the next book by the seat of my pants!

BB: You’ve expressed an interest in doing an Irene Adler solo book. Could you give us a little taste storywise of what that would be like?

LM: Irene gets a hastily written note from Mycroft to come to the club, but looking at the writing, she can see something’s up. She takes a bag with her, but we don’t see what’s inside. When she gets there, she has to let herself in, and she finds his rooms in disarray. There are papers everywhere, drawers pulled out and blood on the carpet and chair. His map table has pieces knocked everywhere. She finds a cufflink under the desk. Mycroft is gone. We follow her as she chases down her usual sources across London, using all her persuasive powers and her fists to coerce them, but she gets very little. Eventually she gets a lead to Dover. Was he put on a boat? She has no evidence. She decides to catch a train back to London and stands on the platform, with all kinds of people milling around her. She is looking at a poster urging travelers to “Explore the Continent in Luxury!” There is a grand steam engine, rattling away from us along a high mountain track with the sun setting behind the mountain and steam billowing up into the starry sky. On the highest peak, there is the shape of a turreted castle, in silhouette. She stares at it, and then runs to a cab. “Get me to the dock before she sails and I’ll pay you double! Hurry!” and they clatter off away toward the jetty. We see a man with a scarf pulled up over his face and dark glasses step out of the crowd Irene was standing in, and get in the next cab which follows her.

Following blockbuster series launches—ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN, ULTIMATE BLACK PANTHER, and ULTIMATE X-MEN—the highly anticipated next title in Marvel’s new Ultimate Universe arrives this June: ULTIMATES! Directly spinning out of Jonathan Hickman’s foundation for the new Ultimate line, ULTIMATES will be written by Deniz Camp, known for his thought-provoking and socially relevant work on titles like Children of the Vault and 20th Century Men, and drawn by rising superstar Juan Frigeri, known for his acclaimed work on Invincible Iron Man. The series will introduce the all-new super hero team that will usher in the next wave of bold storytelling within the new Ultimate Universe. Months ago, Tony Stark sent Peter Parker a radioactive spider to set him back on the course to become Spider-Man. Since then, Iron Lad (Stark), Captain America, Doom, Thor, and Sif have begun to do the same for other lost heroes, building a network of super-powered heroes hungry for change… Over two years, they must band together to destroy the Maker’s Council and restore freedom and free will to a world ruled from the shadows. Fans can see their opening efforts in the all-new ULTIMATES #1 trailer, featuring never-before-seen artwork from both ULTIMATES #1 and FREE COMIC BOOK DAY 2024: AMAZING SPIDER-MAN/ULTIMATE UNIVERSE #1. "The new Ultimates line is the most exciting super hero comics event in years, and it’s humbling to be a part of it!" Camp shared. “We are reinventing these classic characters and archetypes to be as surprising and vital as when they were first introduced. Our Ultimates is an evolution not just of the Avengers, but of the whole super hero team concept; from the grand and operatic to the small and personal, THE ULTIMATES will feel like no Avengers or Ultimates comic ever before! That's our ambition, anyway; tune in to find out if we succeed.“ In 2002, Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch’s mega influential ULTIMATES series revolutionized the super hero epic, and its impact is still felt today! Now, 20 years later, Camp and Frigeri return the ULTIMATES to greatness with a modern take for a new world and a new generation of readers! The time has come for an ULTIMATE plan of action! Check out the trailer and preorder ULTIMATES #1 at your local comic shop today!

This summer, Werewolf By Night embarks on new adventures so violent and bloody, it can only be told in Marvel’s new Red Band format! WEREWOLF BY NIGHT, Jack Russell’s new solo ongoing series, will be written by Jason Loo, writer of the upcoming Werewolf By Night: Blood Hunt one-shot, and drawn by artist Sergio Dávila, known for his bold work on titles like Venom and Thor. Marvel’s premier horror icon will undergo a startling transformation during Blood Hunt that will cause his upcoming battles and hunts to be too graphic for some readers. Labeled with a Parental Advisory and polybagged to keep those weak of heart from experiencing its intensity, WEREWOLF BY NIGHT will mark a new chapter in the character’s 50-year storytelling history as Jack gets his claws, fangs, and fur blood-soaked like never before! FULL MOON RISE – WEREWOLF KILL! Jack Russell has been trying to live a simple life – but in the deadly and dramatic wake of the Blood Hunt, his life is about to be turned upside down in ways he never imagined! With new enemies hoping to extract a (literal) pound of flesh and Jack unsure if he can be trusted around old allies and a lost love, the original WEREWOLF BY NIGHT is in for the fight of his life…and he’s in it alone! “I give Jack Russell a taste of the life he wants before the Blood Hunt event rips it away and leaves blood on his hands,” Loo shared. “His new journey is to find redemption while figuring out his new lycanthropic transformation. No one is safe when the full moon is out. But luckily, Elsa Bloodstone is around to keep him in check.” “Our team is delivering a very metal, monster comic and we’re not holding back,” Loo continued. “I’m both shocked and impressed at myself for conjuring up these gruesome scenes from the dark recesses of my mind, then seeing them come to life with every gory detail thanks to penciler Sergio Dávila and inker JP Mayer, as our editors keep giving us the thumbs up of approval. This is literally our smash room in a Red Band comic.” “This has been a great experience,” Dávila added. “Jason Loo is writing a very wild Werewolf By Night and I’m having a lot of fun with the character. I’ve always enjoyed taking characters to the extreme and Werewolf By Night is someone very much tormented by his inner self, so this is a book full of intense action and lots of blood!” Check out E.M.
