Princeless came from a confluence of issues I had. I’ve always had a lot of close geek girl friends and I’m always looking for strong female characters in comics to share with them. I think there just aren’t enough. When I married my wife, I got to know her younger sisters and some of her cousins. As young girls of color none of them had ever picked up a comic book (except my wife) and why should they? I can count on one hand the number of black women you can find on your comic book stand right now, not to mention the number who are positive portrayals. The same holds true for women of color in fantasy stories. I wanted my daughter to have comic books she could love the same way I’ve loved mine. Not to mention, I’m a little leery about the princess culture and what it actually teaches girls.

oh my god. i just came to the ultimate realization. I HAVE A HALLOWEEN COSTUME! I am SO dressing up as Princess Adrienne. I need that POC Geek-Con to happen…NOW.
If this happens, I WILL NEED PICTURES!
This is one of my personal favorite images of Adrienne and it’s right there in issue 1. In her eyes here, I think we see a lot of what Adrienne will become over time.
