Dynamite Relaunches Xena: Warrior Princess With Vita Ayala & Olympia Sweetman

by James Ferguson

This April, Dynamite Entertainment will launch a brand new Xena: Warrior Princess ongoing series from writer Vita Ayala and artist Olympia Sweetman. Rebecca Nalty is on board for colors and Ariana Maher will be handling letters. The comic takes us back to Ancient Greece with the reformed warlord as we follow her on her latest adventures with her trusted companion, Gabrielle.

Editor Nate Cosby says:

Bounding adventures! Amazing episodes that build to a huge overall story! Every action sequence motivated by strong characters and deep emotion! Did you dig the Xena television series? You will ADORE what Vita, Olympia, Rebecca and Ariana are cooking up with this series. And if you don’t know what Xena’s about? This is the perfect place to start!

First up is an investigation into a mysterious village where children are miraculously strong. Could the petty Greek Gods be involved? If not, it’s only a matter of time before they stick their meddlesome fingers in.

Writer Vita Ayala adds:

I am INCREDIBLY excited to be working on Xena! She is my favorite character of all time, and to be able to work on any project involving her is an honor. The team has a lot of fun things in store for readers, including some old frenemies and travel to places that even XENA has never seen before!

Xena: Warrior Princess #1 will feature covers from David Mack, Emanuela Lupacchino, Erica Henderson, Paulina Ganucheau, Raul Allen, and Patricia Martin.

Artist Olympia Sweetman says:

I am tremendously enjoying working on Xena, and feel fortunate and lucky to be drawing such an iconic and interesting character. To me, one of the most exciting aspects of drawing this book is having the opportunity to depict the vivid and interesting world of Xena, including the scoundrels, gods and allies. This is my first major comics job, and I am putting my all into this book!

Xena: Warrior Princess #1 is set for release in April 2019.
