The second of Dynamite's New York Comic Con announcements today focuses on the Warlord of Mars art work by J. Scott Campbell. The piece is being used to inspire a new Women of Dynamite statue: the Dejah Thoris Diroama Statue. Dejah Thoris, the science-fiction heroine who debuted in Edgar Rice Burroughs's 1912 serial A Princess of Mars, has long been a cornerstone of the Dynamite Entertainment brand, both as a featured character in the Warlord of Mars series and solo character in a self-titled series of comics.
Sculpted by Steve Kiwis of Rvckvs International, the Women of Dynamite: Dejah Thoris Diorama Statue is inspired by Campbell's cover to the 2010 Warlord of Mars #1 comic book. Measuring approximately 8.75" in height, with a base measuring 9" by 6.5", this cold-cast resin statue comes with gold-colored micro-link metal chain details. This piece ships in a full-color display box with a Certificate of Authenticity, individually numbered as part of a limited edition run.
J. Scott Campbell rose to stardom in the 1990s with Wildstorm's Gen 13 and Danger Girl, co-created with Andy Hartnell. With a penchant for drawing dynamic action poses and vivacious ladies, Campbell quickly became one of the industry's most sought-after cover artists.
The Women of Dynamite: Dejah Thoris Diorama Statue, inspired by J. Scott Campbell, will be solicited in the November 2017 Previews catalog corresponding with a sale date in January 2018.
