In PRINCELESS BOOK 8 #1, we learn oldest sister Alize’s backstory in the desert and when she first meets her intense guardian, the Sphinx. Artist Kaitlin Jann had this to say about her experience working on PRINCELESS and what the book means to her: “Princeless continues to be empowering and inspiring to its audience, and it has had the same effect on the creative team behind it. Seeing how the story and the characters within it come to life through the dedication of talented writers and artists has been an unparalleled experience. Having been able to contribute to this process has taught me so much about myself as an artist and in the power of comics as a whole.”

The first issue will be released in April 2019. Readers can pre-order the book with the Diamond item code FEB191305.

In the second story, Angelica tries to find something she’s good at. It’s an arduous journey, but eventually she finds a strategy game that’s more than meets the eye. Now she must face numerous challengers and see if she’s truly a skilled tactician. Artist Jackie Crofts (NUTMEG) had this to say: “I was so happy to get the opportunity to come back and work on Princeless again, because my first real work in comics was doing a cover for an issue of it about 5 years ago. Jeremy was the gateway to a lot of opportunities I’ve had in comics since then, so I have a special fondness for this series. It’s full of fun, positivity, and great role models and that makes it an exciting project to work on and be a part of!”

The second issue will also be released in April 2019. Readers can pre-order the book with the Diamond item code FEB191306.

In the third issue we have Adrienne’s vampire sister Angoisse. Still living in the swamp, Angoisse is approached by goblins asking for help. Can she be the swamp’s guardian? This issue’s main story features art by Newt Taber, who had this to say about her experience: “Working on ‘The Swamp’s Dark Defenders’ was a really meaningful and exciting experience for me. I learned so much from every single page, and was very grateful to be working on such a fun and wholesome project! I really feel like this story, though short, is part of something very important. I’ll always be proud to have helped get it out there.”

Takeia Marie worked on the follow-up story in this issue, ‘Goblin Politics.’ Takeia had this to say about PRINCELESS: “I was drawn to Princeless because the entire story flew in the face of the conventional princess tropes I had grown up with. I really liked that Jeremy used the humor of Princeless’ world and characters to comment on issues that we’re dealing with right now, everyday. I was excited to get a chance to play around with some of those characters in ‘Goblin Politics’ and have free reign to make it as ridiculous and funny as possible.”

The third issue will also be released in May 2019. Readers can pre-order the book with the Diamond item code MAR191325.

Adrienne’s twin sisters are finally free from their tower, but not their bickering! And this time their spells get involved, turning them into rabbits! Artist Roblin Kaplan had a few things to say about PRINCELESS: “The twins were such a great pair of unexpected heroines to take me to the comedy gym and help me flex my humor muscles, though I don’t think they would like to join me for carrot juice afterwards.”

The fourth issue will also be released in May 2019. Readers can pre-order the book with the Diamond item code MAR191326.

Finally, after all this time, Adrienne is on the way to rescue her oldest sister, Alize. Since the day she left the tower, this is as far as she had planned. Now, it’s all falling apart. Bedelia stayed behind in the mountains with her family and now Adrienne can’t find Alize’s tower. Will she end up lost and alone wandering the desert? Meanwhile, Devin and his friends have stumbled onto an army attacking a town right on the borders of their kingdom? Who are they and what do they want?

Princeless Volume 7 #1: Find Yourself – Princess Adrienne is back and ready to fight!

Princeless is the three time Glyph winning and multiple Eisner nominated series that was recently optioned by Sony to become a major motion picture. Written and created by Jeremy Whitley, the story focuses on female empowerment as a princess gets tired of waiting for her prince and frees herself from her tower, teaming up with a dragon to save her sisters.

In the latest volume, Princess Adrienne journeys to rescue her oldest sister Alize. Except with Bedelia leaving to stay with her family and Adrienne abandoning her dragon Sparky, the princess turned knight finds herself lost and alone in the desert. While danger approaches her, Devin and his comrades find a town being attacked by an army near their home and are about to come face-to-face with deadly foes… and betrayal.

The first issue of Princeless Volume 7: Find Yourself will be in a comic book store near you on October 17th, 2018 featuring art by Emily Martin, Ainhoa Rueda, and Brett Grunig and two covers, one by Onyinye Anakor and another by Emily Martin.
