That’s great!  I’m amused at the pointed feet on the fake cover too because that’s something that’s in a lot of these types of covers.



Why do I feel like this is making fun of Wendy Pini :p
(though, knowing her, she’d probably laugh about it)

Not really Wendy Pini so much as a number of artists who have come later and failed to provide any substance for their characters, just a lot of sexy posing.

The statements “I don’t follow politics” and “I try to stay out of politics” are inherently privileged statements.

You don’t pay attention because you’re safe and not afraid of what might happen to you.

Hey, you might want to cool down just a little.

I somewhat…

I feel like you’re misunderstanding the post.

First, I’m neither taking nor suggesting taking anything from anybody.

Second, I’m point out that it is a choice.  Specifically, it’s a choice one makes to be ignorant because one is in a position where they can make that choice.  Many people are not in a position where they can choose not to know about what’s happening in politics because it is directly affecting them every day.

The Three Leading Ladies of Princeless - The Pirate Princess

By Rosy Higgins and Ted Brandt

Top:  Princess Adrienne Ashe

Middle: Raven Xingtao

Bottom:  Bedelia Smith

Hello Tumblr, above are the three leading ladies of the upcoming volume of Princeless titled “The Pirate Princess”.  This will be volume three of Princeless, but as with all volumes it is a story unto itself and designed to be a book you can read on its own.

If you are not familiar with Princeless, it is a fantasy comic which is appropriate for all-ages and centers around Adrienne (Top Image) who is a princess of a far away kingdom who is locked away in a tower by her parents and rather than waiting to be saved, decides to save herself.

This particular story follows Adrienne’s rescue of another girl she finds locked away in a tower.  But when that girl turns out to be the revenge bent daughter of The Pirate King, Adrienne finds that she’s gotten more than she bargained for.

Princeless is, I believe, fairly unique in the fantasy and comics world.  Its lead, Adrienne, is a woman and princess of color.  Her sidekick, Bedelia, is a mixed race girl from two very different worlds whose overcome a lot to be where she is.  This volume’s new co-heroine, Raven, is a character of Asian descent who fights alongside (and sometimes against Adrienne) to right a wrong and reclaim her birthright.  

While the characters are often distressed, there are no damsels in this story.  These girls all have (or are finding) agency.  They are all heroes and they are the ones doing the rescuing.  They’re still girls, they still have insecurities and issues, but their lives are defined neither by those insecurities nor by the presence or lack of romance.

Princeless is an action comic about fully dressed (often in armor), capable, self-determining, ambitious, sword fighting, dragon riding, rule breaking girls.  And while it’s for everybody, my hope is that those are exactly the kind of girls in will find - the kind of girl I want my daughter to know she can be.

There will be hugging, hair cutting, fairy tale reading, and occassionally even the color pink.  But first and foremost there are these amazing things that there just aren’t nearly enough of in comics - GIRLS!

Please, seek it out and enjoy.

civilianreader:

Just one of the scenes from PRINCELESS that makes it a must read. Funny, well-written and realized, with an important (essential) message. If this comic was put in the hands of… well, everyone (young and old ), it would have more impact than any number of angry internet debates.

Princeless – Book One: Save Yourself (2012)

Story: Jeremy Whitley , art: M. Goodwin

Avaliable at comixology / amazon

Hey I want to buy some princeless because I love what I've seen on here that you've posted, but I'm a little confused/overwhelmed by all the different issues when I go to your site. Is there more than one series? What should I get first?

So the series is divided up into volumes.  Currently there are two volumes plus a collection of short stories.  Volume 1 is called “Save Yourself” and Volume 2 is called “Get Over Yourself”.  The short stories you can more or less where you want to in the story.
