So, I’ve been talking alot about Volume 2 and pretty soon you will all be able to see it for yourselves. But, while you’re waiting, I thought I’d share a page and show a little demonstration of how a page becomes a page.
Emily C Martin, aka Megamoth in the Tumblr-verse, is working hard on putting together pages for volume 2 and here’s how:
First you’ll see the initial thumbnails, where Emily does a quick run down of each page, doing three or four pages on a single sheet of paper. The idea is to do a quick run through to make sure that she understands what I’m looking for on a page before she spends hours doing it perfectly.
Once she and I talk and address any concerns we have about the way things are shaping up, she moves on to the pencils. Now she can hit the details that weren’t visible at the smaller size. Sometime adjustments need to be made even after this, but hopefully their small.
Now the inks, I don’t have those here, but the next step is the color. The color here is done by Kelly Lawrence aka thesweetprince. You’ll notice it’s quite beautiful and incredibly radiant (and you’ll get that on every page when she colors).
Please enjoy and reblog!
Okay folks, this is not my book
This is a book with a strong female character as the lead that will appeal to all-ages and is still solid for adults. It is a creator owned book by one of the best working creators of color in the comic book market today and it is very close to not getting made.
As you may know, Kickstarter is an all or nothing deal. If Jamal Igle does not meet his goal for this project, he gets none of what’s pledged. People, I want this book. I want to read this book. I want to enjoy this book. I want to share this book with my daughter, my cousins, my sisters, my wife, and my friends and their kids. Far be it for me to tell anyone what to do with their money (outside of buying Princeless) but if you are a fan of Princeless, this is probably the kind of book you want to see in the marketplace…forget that, in the hands of you and your kids.
So please, share this with all of your followers. We have 4 days left and roughly 100,000 dollars left to raise. If it helps, consider it a pre-order for one of the best books of next year that comes with awesome free swag when you pre-order.
Hey everybody! Sorry, I fell off there a little bit, but we’re back and we have fresh art for you from Ms. Jules Rivera.
If you remember, she’s doing a story in our short story collection called “Meet The Smiths” featuring our beloved you blacksmith a few years before we meet her. What does this page have to do with Bedelia? Well, if you can’t tell then you probably haven’t read Princeless Issue 3. You should get on that.

As you may have guessed from my giant capital letters, this post has something to do with Princeless and Racebending. Mainly, that things is that Racebending did a really amazing double-whammy of a piece on Princeless. In one article you get both a review of the entire first mini-series AND quite a lengthy interview with series writer and creator Jeremy Whitley about Princeless, it’s inspirations, it’s challenges, and the future of the book and its characters.
Warning: If you have not finished the mini-series there are some spoilers, particularly in the interview, so read it at your own risk.
Check out the new review of Princeless Book 1 from Comic Book Critic at http://comicbookcritic.net/2012/04/08/review-princeless-action-lab/
Here’s a little taste of what he had to say.
“Although this is an all-ages comic, it doesn’t mean it’s just for kids. Everyone from 5 to 50+ will enjoy this series. The writing is smart and witty and the art is very appealing.”
And so begins Issue 3 of Princeless, the issue for which we have been nominated for an Eisner for Best Single Issue. If you want to see the rest of the story: buy it on itunes, android, graphicly, nook, or plain old paper at your local comic book shop. Or, you can hang out right here and wait for a special announcement coming from Action Lab Comics.
