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.

Thorne’s definitive style is brought into the third dimension and your collection in this 1/6 scale collectible statue sculpted and painted lovingly based on the cover to Marvel Feature #4. The Steve Kiwus sculpted piece stands a stunning 12.5 inches tall and features Sonja in a classic pose.

Through her nearly 50 year history, many artists have left their mark on the She-Devil with a Sword. Arguably none have impacted the heroine quite like Frank Thorne. His clean lines, fluid action and slight hint of eroticism on Red Sonja catapulted the character from a supporting footnote in Hyrkanian lore to a worldwide fan-favorite solo star. Through his judging of “Lookalike Contests” in his "Wizard" persona at early conventions, Thorne and Sonja fans even contributed to the rise of cosplay!

After contributing for a few years to western, war and mystery anthologies, Frank Thorne's popularity exploded when he was handed the artistic reigns of everyone's favorite Hyrkanian hero. Across barely a three year run, his Red Sonja work cemented him as one of the most treasured and respected artists of the era. Thorne then opted to venture into more independent and risque waters, with his creations the barbarienne Ghita of ...

Dynamite announces that Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt will be collected in a deluxe oversized hardcover format for fans to fully appreciate and treasure the critically acclaimed limited series.

Not only is Kieron Gillen writing superheroes again... Not only is Pete Morisi's iconic Charlton hero back again... The series turns the mirror around to reflect the deconstruction of the legendary text, Watchmen. Peter Cannon of course served as the template for Alan Moore's Ozymandias, alongside the other characters inspired by Charlton Action Heroes. What if the inspirations get to respond to this modern post-Watchmen landscape of the medium?


The ambitious series by a perfectly in-synch creative team wowed fans and critics when it debuted at the beginning of 2019. Kieron Gillen, the Eisner-nominated and fan-favorite Uncanny X-Men, Darth Vader, The Wicked + Divine scribe is matched by rising artist extraordinaire Caspar Wijngaard (Limbo, Assassin's Creed), colorist Mary Safro (Drugs & Wires) and renaissance man and Eisner-nominee Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou (Lone Ranger, Shanghai Red) on letters. Additionally, this editions contains all the gorgeous and fun covers of the series by Kris Anka (Runaways), Kevin Wada (Buffy The Vampire Slayer), Chip Zdarsky (Daredevil), Sean Phillips (Criminal), Christian Ward (Thor), Paulina Ganucheau (Xena) and more! All bringing 110% to this series. The next classic text? You be the judge.

This edition will collect the entire series in a high quality hardcover with pages measuring 7.2 by 11.2 inches. Readers can marvel at Wijngaard and Safro's art at this larger size. And even Ostmane-Elhaou's subtle lettering tricks, especially in the game-changing fourth issue.

Kieron sums it up in short, "This is the superhero comic I'm most proud of. It also has at least three funny jokes. This is all I've ever wanted."

Long overdue history in the making! Dynamite's two flagship heroines are teaming up in a new ongoing series starting in September, written by the multitalented and Eisner-winning Jordie Bellaire (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Redlands) with art by Drew Moss (Star Wars).

The story starts in 1969, the genesis of Vampirella - timed perfectly with her 50th Anniversary now being celebrated in 2019. Vampi's new to Earth and still adapting to our world. She finds herself attracted to the supernatural and paranormal mysteries of the world. When suddenly she runs across a young Red Sonja, plucked out of time and clueless. The two women set forth on an adventure, collaborating as both detectives and warriors to find out what has happened... only for more space-time shenanigans to befall them! Do not expect any cliché misunderstanding fights, these two Women of Dynamite are working together, no holds barred.

This series marks Jordie Bellaire further flexing her skills as a writer, following widespread acclaim for her smash hitBuffy The Vampire Slayer relaunch and her Eisner-nominated creator-owned series Redlands. This is on top of her prolific continuing career as a colorist on the best selling and most critically acclaimed comics in the industry, including Batman, Deadpool, Vision, Pretty Deadly and countless more. Her unparalleled skill and reputation have so far garnered two Eisner Awards.

Joining Bellaire and Moss are Rebecca Nalty (Xena Warrior Princess, GLOW) on colors and Becca Carey (Planet of the Apes) on letters. The first issue will feature a range of talented cover artists. Terry and Rachel Dodson (Wonder Woman, Mr. and Mrs. X) lead the pack. Julian Totino Tedesco (Daredevil, Captain ...

Dynamite is making a giant splash in July 2019 with a new Vampirella series by top tier creators like Christopher Priest, as well as reprints and collections of highly sought after recent and classic material, and lots of special items for fans. But in addition to celebrating the 50 years of Vampi, Dynamite looks to the future of Vampirella comics with a blank comic for aspiring creators!
Dynamite is offering the Vampirella Blank Comic Book. This standard length comic book sports sketch-quality blank interior pages and a cover with just logo treatment. Dynamite is embracing the extraordinary talents of their fanbase and the comics community to experiment and produce their own Vampi stories.
People can take on the project solo or collaborate with friends to write, draw, ink, color and letter a full length story. Or split up the pages for an anthology in the vein of the original magazine. Another challenge would be to follow the famous 24-hour comic challenge. An artist drawing in this book could be the next José González, Amanda Conner, Mike Mayhew or Ergün Gündüz, finding themselves professionally drawing the Daughter of Drakulon someday. Or writing, in the footsteps of Archie Goodwin, Kurt Busiek, Mark Millar or Christopher Priest.

Fwoosh! What sound effect does a boomerang make? Find out this August when Dynamite releases THE DEATH-DEFYING 'DEVIL #1 by Gail Simone and Walter Geovani! The Master of Courage returns!


The nearly 80-year-old legendary superhero returns in a miniseries from Eisner-nominated writer Gail Simone (Birds of Prey, Wonder Woman, Domino) and her longtime artistic collaborator Walter Geovani (Red Sonja, Clean Room). Colorist Adriano Augusto (Red Sonja/Tarzan, KISS: Blood & Stardust) and prolific letterer Simon Bowland (Red Sonja, The Boys) round out the cast.


In this yarn inspired by Rod Serling, Bronze Age horror/mystery anthologies, and modern street-level heroics, the 'Devil finds himself beaten and bloodied in the backyard of a ramshackle apartment building. The diverse cast of tenants take him in and across each issue they are explored in-depth. Each has their own unique problems, while a strange force also menaces the building as a whole. The 'Devil makes it his mission to solve all of these puzzles, even when he learns that one of his new neighbors is a traitor.

A whole legion of painterly artists are contributing covers to this blockbuster series. Riccardo Federici (Aquaman, Dark Nights Metal: Dark Knights Rising) leads the pack, Tyler Kirkham (Deathstroke, Green Lantern, Teen Titans) has some fun with a spray effect, Ben Oliver (American Carnage) turns in a playing card-inspired cover featuring the villain Deadly Dreaded Dragon, while fan-favorites Lucio Parillo (Vampirella, Red Sonja) and In-Hyuk Lee (Black Order, Spider-Geddon) strike iconic heroic poses. As a throwback for Project Superpowers fans, a special incentive "Carve Out" cover features Alex Ross's history-making depiction.
