Comic Review: Dejah Thoris #29


This week's Dejah Thoris marks a milestone. I'll get to that shortly but first more Machine Men fighting.

With her father and grandfather facing death from a RoboThark Dejah runs into the arena but finds herself facing the same fate until they're rescued by Ner Jon, whose cloaking device allows them to escape. Also being worked on is an invisibility suit and when Dejah takes it to find the reanimated Tash Lia, she gets more than she bargained for.

I said before I wasn't too thrilled with the return of Mortus and his Machine Men and this issue does OK as a setup for the final big issue, even if it becomes a little predictable. As usual Dejah gets in trouble, someone swears revenge, etc. I just hope when this ends we can get a breather and something  new.

As usual no qualms about the artwork by Debora Carita.

If you enjoy the Machine Men you will love this but I'm ready to move on. As for that milestone, with this issue Dejah Thoris has now passed Marvel's John Carter, Warlord of Mars as the longest running Barsoom inspired comic book series in history. Congrats on that and let's see if it will continue for a long while. Next time more Mars action.
