this is the second trade to a fantastic comic series. My daughter loves the stories and artwork. It is nice to have such an empowering series for young girls.

Adrienne's quest to save her sisters begins. With trusty dragon Sparky, and quirky dwarven smith Bedelia, she sets out for her prettiest sister. But saving a princess is never easy, and in this case, not because of the usual reasons.

Angelica has become an inspiration for artists everywhere, and she has no reason to leave her cushy life behind. She in particular represents the fairytale princess traits to the extreme. She is the most beautiful, the most sought after, and thrice-over cursed...on purpose.

Scenes switch between our heroes and that of the king. The father of the princesses gets this attention to further explain his motives for not only locking up his daughters in towers, but why he unleashes his knights as well.

At Angelica's tower, trouble finds Addrienne in the form of the first knight, and a guardian beast of goo. For one young girl, these are too tough to handle alone. She may be skilled and brave, but it is her admirable willingness to ask for help that brings her success.

The art, especially in these action moments, is a bit inconsistent, however it still matches the text in hilarity, using comedic facial exaggeration, and slapstick.

Whitley continues to parody the normal conventions of the princess tale, in turn creating a funny, heroic quest, and an independent, female lead that will appeal to all ages.
