Revitalizing Xena: Warrior Princess For 2018 - Interview with Meredith Finch

ImageNewsarama has an interview with the new Xena comic book series writer Meredith Finch.

The warrior princess Xena is 21-years-old this year (actually she isn’t – she’s 22 years old this year) and a former Wonder Woman writer is helping revitalize her for her return in early 2018.

On February 14, Dynamite Entertainment launches a new Xena series by writer Meredith Finch and artist Vicente Cifuentes. While NBC's anticipated reboot faltered, Finch and Cifuentes are less than two months away from bringing the Thracian warrior back into the public eye.

Finch, who came to prominence writing DC Comics' Wonder Woman series, is an admitted Xena fan going back to her 1995 debut. Despite her devotion to the now classic character, Finch was able to critically re-assess it here and now to understand Xena's previous popularity, and what could make her popular again in today's landscape.

Finch spoke with Newsarama about bridging from Xena fan to Xena writer, understanding the character's path from villain to hero, and comparing this warrior princess to a certain Amazon.
