This. Is. Awesome.
I’ve had it for awhile, but hadn’t gotten around to reading it, because reading comics now requires me to find a pair of reading glasses. O.o
I should not have waited. Princeless is a delight and a marvel and I LOVE IT.
Adrienne Ashe is the next to youngest princess in her family, and when she comes of age, like her older sisters she is locked in a tower guarded by a dragon, waiting for a prince to come and rescue her.
She is not impressed by this, and decides things would be MUCH better if she rescued herself.
Since she’s made friends with the dragon guarding her tower, she collects some of the spare armor lying around and heads off to rescue her sisters.
This is simply wonderful.
Adrienne rescues herself (with, she later discovers, the secret help of her twin brother) and manages to make friends with the daughter of a blacksmith in a marvelous scene that completely mocks all the typical woman warrior stereotypes and tropes.
Plus, there was a marvelous bit about her getting her hair brushed that I adored, but couldn’t find a cap of online.
I am definitely getting this for all the small people in my life once they reach 9 or so.
