Review by Jeremias de Leon
The story continues with Adrienne’s search for her sisters to rescue them from the towers they were locked in by their father. Adrienne and Bedelia get lost on the way and are separated from Sparky. Which puts them in some new danger. There was also a sub plot in this issue about her brother and what looks to be what will lead into a bigger role in the story.
There’s not a lot going on in this issue beyond those two plots but that makes the issue feel a lot easier to digest. There was time taken for the characters to develop and interact with each other. Something Jeremy Whitley has a big talent for writing.
The art from Emily Martin has this cute and comical style to it that really shines with Jeremy’s story. When action happens or a funny thing happens the characters look like they’re moving in an exaggerated but believable way that really catches the eye. The characters facial expressions are also quite well done and emotions like shock and anger come through loud and clear and if nothing was said by the characters the emotion would still be understood very clearly.
The charming characters written by Jeremy Whitley and the simultaneous sense of fun, drama, adventure, and action rolled into a very entertaining package in this comic. Princeless still sets a high standard for pacing and writing believable interesting characters and having cool action to appeal to a wide variety of people. I give Princeless Book 4 Issue 1 a 10 out of 10.
