Princeless Vol 2

Adrienne is hot on the trail of her older sister Angelica.
But in order to save Angelica, Adrienne will have to face a real monster —
jealousy.  Meanwhile, another member of
the royal family has disappeared and one of King Ashe’s closest allies may be
to blame!
It really goes without saying at this point that I am more
than delighted with any opportunity to read a book coming out of Action
Lab.  One in particular comes to mind,
especially with how much of it I’ve been able to see.  I’m speaking, of course, of their wonderful
series Princeless.  For those that
haven’t read this title, this collection gives just as much reason to do so.
Prior to getting my hands on this full second volume, I had
the chance to read issues 1 and 2 some time ago.  Just like my reviews of those two parts indicated,
the volume as a whole proves to be packed full of everything that makes
Princeless fantastic.  Great writing,
nonstop comedy, and beautiful art keep this top notch book going from start to
The next volume of this crazy adventure ride obviously
spends a majority of its time with Adrienne and her companions.  After a slightly detoured start to their
trek, they do eventually manage to find her older sister Angelica.  Once getting there though, things are not at
all what had been expected.  In the mean
time thanks to measures back home, Adrienne’s troupe is being hunted down as
the arrival of one hunter soon makes evident. 
No sooner does she deal with this battle she finds herself fighting
something even worse.
An adventure like this needs strong art to go along with the
writing, and they continue to deliver through this volume.  The artwork throughout these chapters of the
main story has been consistently good.  I
really love how the lighthearted feel of the book always seems to be expressed
just right through the stand out imagery.
With this sophomore collection of Princeless really moving
things along, I absolutely cannot wait to see what’s in store for the upcoming
chapters.  Pretty much everything from
Action Lab I’ve been lucky enough to read has been good, but this is one of my
favorites, if not right at the top.  It’s
not too late to get into this spectacular series, so do the wise thing and grab
Volumes 1 and 2, as well as any of the one shots.
