[Preview] Action Lab’s 5/30 Release: PRINCELESS: RAVEN, THE PIRATE PRINCESS – Year Two #8

Raven Year 2 #8

This Wednesday, Action Lab Entertainment has the eighth issue of the second year for PRINCELESS: RAVEN, THE PIRATE PRINCESS!

RAVEN is a pirate revenge adventure, a soap opera full of messy teenage love stories, and about a dozen coming of age stories set on the high seas. Think “Legend of Korra” at sea with an all female cast.

This series has one of the most diverse and exciting casts of any comic on the market. It’s full of action, adventure, and revenge – but even more full of love stories and soap operas. RAVEN is one of the first YA comics with an openly gay leading lady. But on top of that it has a cast of women who represent a wide spectrum of the LGBTQ community. It’s equal parts soap opera and actual opera.

Everything has been going perfectly for Sunshine.  She’s living on a protected island where everything she needs is provided for her.  She’s been set up with a beautiful girl who’s head over heels for her.  So why can’t she just be happy and ignore the feeling in her gut that something is wrong with this place?

Raven, on the other hand, has never been more miserable.  She’s gone from swordfighting to sulking and Ximena won’t even speak to her.

A storm is coming and everything’s about to change…


What people are saying about Raven:

“Raven the Pirate Princess is the Coolest, Queerest Pirate on the Seven Seas”
“ ‘Princeless Raven: The Pirate Princess’ is the YA lesbian heroine we’ve been waiting for

“Whitley continues to prove his mastery of writing characters that are fun, even in dark situations.”
(The Broken Infinite)

“This second season has definitely kicked things up a notch, and I’m excited to read more.”
(Sequential Tart)
