After the events of issue 2, Adrienne awakens alone on the beach without her armor. Where has Raven gone and what is she after anyway? Also, PIRATE FIGHT! The Eisner-Award nominated PRINCELESS continues!
With the next volume of the main series not due until June, it’s a good thing we still have great side stories like this. And as this one is proving, just because it’s an offshoot, that doesn’t mean it can’t be just as awesome. Three issues into Princeless: The Pirate Princess and they are proving more and more just how awesome it can be.
The events of the previous night mysteriously left out, Adrienne wakes to no armor or even real clothes and the pirate princess Raven missing. Luckily, it’s all a misunderstanding and Raven is simply taking a quick (and naked) morning dip in the ocean. This lounging is interrupted by Sparky’s frightened return being shot at by cannonballs. Finding it is one of the pirates working with Raven’s brother, they hatch a plan to storm the ship, and in style. Mostly.
More of the excellent artwork present in the Princeless world is seen again in this title. There were a couple of really simple, yet neat “effects” for motion sequences in here that I appreciated. With a good helping of aerial and even nautical scenes, there was more than enough room for lots of great visuals.
I really don’t think I can ever get enough of Princeless, it’s really hard to not enjoy the heck out of it. Not only is it one of my favorite Action Lab titles, but sits at the top zone of comics in general. Quench your thirst for more until the main returns soon with this next issue as soon as you can.
