We're back with another Straight Forward Review and this time we're looking at the Princeless series. A series I've been on since the beginning. It's always been good but does this issue keep up the quality? Does it lag or might it even surpass the previous issues?
Review by Jeremias de Leon
We get a nice intro from Angelica explaining her family including Adrienne and how she got her curses. Then it gets right into the action with Adrienne and Bedelia trying to come up with a plan to deal with Angelica's guardian.
There's great dialog that happens while they're trying to frantically defeat the guardian and we get to see some nice character progression with Angelica and Adrienne. Adrienne proves herself in this issue, maybe not the way she wanted to but she did. Angelica ends up doing things she probably didn't think she would do. Sorry about being vague about it but I dont' want to spoil things.
Emily Martin definitely comes into her own in this issue. It's still definitely Princeless but you can see that she definitely gives everything her own unique flair. The characters look like they are stylized but also have proportions that are more realistic. Thinking mainly of the size of their head compared to the rest of the body.
It's also just really fun to look at, seeing the action in this issue with Angelica's guardian it all looks like the angles were well thought out and the movement of characters makes it feel like watching a cartoon. Which is great.
This gets a 10 out of 10. Here's why it deserves one, first you get a quick and fun recap so if you don't know what's going on from reading the previous issues (you should anyway) you're good to go. Second, the character progression in this issue is nice as it's not only Adrienne who learns and grows bur her sister Angelica too. Third, everything comes together in this issue. Smart writing, nice action, character progression and a proper set up stage for the story that looks like things are only going to be picking up from here. Not only that but it looks like Adrienne is shaping up to a real hero by what she does and is starting to realize it with the help of her friends. So it looks like even though the obstacles might be getting tougher she'll be becoming more capable to meet those obstacles.
