Comic Review: Dejah Thoris #26


This week's Dejah adventure finds her looking for fortune and glory kid. Fortune and glory.

Taking a break from Helium, Dejah visits an old professor and friend, Syl Mak. Studying a pillar from the dead city of Dorvas, Dejah and the professor decide to take an expedition there for more information. But the usual intrigues happen when they discover another student of the professor's has teamed up with a tomb robber named Sav Tanek to clean out the new found tomb. But with death traps and giant spiders Dejah has to save the day. No giant boulders appear in this story.

A fun stand alone sort, Dejah does Indiana Jones quite well-if more scantily clad-as writer Robert Place Napton gives the reader a break from the usual plots this series embraces. There is no fat on the story and a quick pace that moves from point a to point b with some verve and fun. 

The usual thumbs up for Carlos Rafael and his work. Nothing else to say there.

I know this is a short review but there isn't much to say except fans will enjoy the fun story and light adventure tone. See you next time.
