Dejah Thoris, John Carter, and the rest of Edgar Rice Burroughs' "Mars Universe" have been part of the science fiction landscape for over 100 years!
Celebrating over a century of Dejah Thoris in popular culture, and a decade of success working with the Edgar Rice Burroughs estate, Dynamite Entertainment is excited to release our very first collectible sketch card series featuring “The Queen of Mars”.
Each randomly sorted foil pack contains 7 cards, including sketch and signed cards that can’t be found anywhere else!
SAMPLES FROM OUR GREAT ARTISTS...
Fans have the opportunity to reserve multiple packs of this sketch card series BEFORE retail. And because this series is a limited printing, Kickstarter backers are guaranteed priority on their orders. Considering the sell-out success of Dynamite’s previous Red Sonja® sketch card series, Dejah Thoris is poised to sell-out as well, making these specially priced packs much harder to find once the campaign is closed.
WHO IS DEJAH THORIS?
Starting in 1912, the adventures of Dejah Thoris captured the imagination of fans with its astonishing depiction of life on Mars in a time when the surface of Mars was unfathomable to most people. Burroughs' fiction has become one of the most significant influences on modern science fiction today and Dynamite has continued his “Mars” stories in comic book form for the past decade, raising a new generation of fans.
Dejah Thoris is the princess of the Martian city-state/empire of Helium in Edgar Rice Burroughs' series of Martian novels. She is the love interest and later the wife of John Carter, an Earthman mystically transported to Mars, and subsequently the mother of their son Carthoris and daughter Tara. She plays the role of the conventional damsel in distress who must be rescued from various perils, but is also portrayed as a competent and capable adventurer in her own right, fully capable of defending herself and surviving on her own in the wastelands of Mars.
