There’s a wide range of art in Princeless: Short Stories for Warrior Women #2 and it’s all good. Rivera gets full run on “The Smiths,” showing why she has a complete handle on the vibe Whitley is going for. Lawrence’s work on “The Runaway Prince” is very reminiscent of an old-school JRPG, so much so that you’re waiting for the menu box to pop up and offer you equipment options. And it’s great.
The pin-ups by Moriarty and Leuver are nice intermission pieces. They really capture the Princeless universe quite well and are also great to look at. Action Lab could easily offer the pin-ups as standalone prints and they’ll likely be snapped up by many.
Say what you want about comics from the big two, but it’s books like Princeless: Short Stories for Warrior Women #2 from Action Lab that offer readers something a little lighter. That’s not to say they don’t tackle the bigger issues, as the Princeless series always deals with issues such as racism and feminism. They do it in a way that’s not preachy though, instead relying on good storytelling and art to subtly get the message across.
