More Princeless Power with Raven: The Pirate Princess

Proving you don’t always need a prince to save the princess, the acclaimed Princeless series spins off a new tale.

Raven the Pirate Princess previewAction Lab Entertainment has teamed up with Princeless creator Jeremy Whitley for a new spin off series debuting this July, Princeless: Raven, the Pirate Princess. The series follows Raven Xingtao, a princess who appears to be a regular princess at first sight but is actually a dangerous swashbuckling pirate. The character and story began as a Free Comic Book Day project to highlight what Princeless is all about but has evolved into something greater. Debuting this July, her story begins as she sets off on a quest for revenge against her brothers who have stolen her inheritance.

The comic has four covers: A standard cover by series artists, Rosy Higgins and Ted Brandt, and three variants by Katie Cook (GRONK), Richard Case (Books of Magic) and Mike Hawthorne (Deadpool).

According to Whitley, the new series will continue with the same blend of humor and action as well as the same diverse representation. “As the first issue will demonstrate, the fights and chases are a bit more intense and so are the emotions. There will be more punching but eventually also more kissing.”
