[quote]For all the swordplay and action in the John Carter tales, they’re all ultimately love stories. The desire and determination for John and Dejah to be together is the driving force. The readers have to be invested in their story, and in rooting for them to be together. So I’m just following the same path that Burroughs did. We start with John and Dejah separate, and the readers get to join them on their quest to be reunited.

I think it also allows Dejah to play more of a heroic role. I know it might not seem like that now, because she’s a prisoner in the first issue, but Dejah will get to kick some serious ass. She’s the Lois Lane to John Carter’s Superman, heroic in her own right, not a damsel in distress.[/quote]
