A new Xena: Warrior Princess comic book is coming out this April from Dynamite Entertainment.

According to Bleeding Cool, the new comic will be written by Genevieve Valentine, who wrote the recent Catwoman comic, with art from Ariel Medel, who worked on John carter and Warlord of Mars.


In addition, artists Greg Land and Jenny Frison will be providing covers to issue #1. Here's the official description of the new Xena:

"After the Twilight of the Gods, the world is precariously uncertain Ė and Xena and Gabrielle have been missing from it for twenty-five years. Even without Livia, the power of Rome is growing: Caesar is determined to conquer by lies what he canít conquer by force, and the people at its edges know whatís coming. (All roads lead to Rome, and Rome is hunting.) Xena and Gabrielle scramble to stop him before they have to wage war against a man they once called a friend. But along the way, Xena will have to confront her past against a rogue band of women warriors, and Gabrielle, whose secret visions are becoming prophecy, will have to protect Xena Ė at any cost."
