I don’t cross promote my other stuff on here much, but this is an extraordinary circumstance. My other creator-owned book, The Order of Dagonet, has not had great sales success in its first three issues (two of which aren’t even out yet) and the current sales are unsustainable for producing a book.
So, while it’s not Princeless, I ask you: take this free comic from me! Bleeding Cool has the entire double-sized first issue (44 pages!) up for free. Please, check it out, pass it on, reblog it, and if you like it - preorder the trade in previews now!
FREE PRINCELESS COMIC
Now that I have your attention, this is a repost for all of you who don’t read a post unless it has a picture attached to let you know that Bleeding Cool currently has the entire first issue of Princeless up for you to read for free!
It’s right here: http://www.bleedingcool.com/2012/04/20/free-eisner-nominated-princeless/
All we ask is that you reblog, retweet, repost, and otherwise pass it on. If you enjoy the book, you can pick up the first collection in only a few short weeks. And, of course, if you’re eligible vote at http://www.eisnervote.com
I’d been vaguely interested in Princeless since I first saw it was a thing, but this is the first chance I’ve gotten to read it.
Thanks so much to everyone who has reblogged so far! The response has been fantastic. If you haven’t reblogged it yet, please do. If you have, pass it on through any other means. Post it on your facebook, post it on twitter, link it on your blog, just email the link to people you think might enjoy it. If this book is going to compete in rewards and sales, more people need to see it. We believe in Princess Adrienne. Do you?
So Eisner voting closed out tonight, which means it’s all done but the waiting…for the next month and a half. I’ll have plenty to keep me busy. Speaking of which, anybody who hasn’t can keep busy checking out the first issue on Bleeding Cool, check the link above.
I’ve also been dying to catch up with Princeless, an indie comic about a princess who decides to rescue her sisters from a variety of towers instead of waiting for some prince to do it for them. I first heard about it on the 3 Chicks Review Comics podcast, and then noticed it had been nominated for an Eisner. It’s not out in trade quite yet though, and I couldn’t quite bear to get single issues after so nicely escaping that particular rat run. Today though I was excited to see that Issue 1 is available to read free on Bleeding Cool.
Yay! Somebody is taking advantage of the free issue! You should to!
