The Prodigal Princess Returns to Kick Some Skulls!

Princeless: Save Yourself trade paperback will include team-up short story with Skullkickers


In 2011, Princess Adrienne showed readers the power of self-dependence and taking your own destiny by the hands.

And in 2012, the Princess will have an unexpected team-up that is sure to kick… some skulls.

This April, Action Lab Entertainment presents the critically acclaimed Princeless: Save Yourself (Diamond Order Code FEB120706), collecting the first volume of the sprawling fantasy adventure series by Jeremy Whitley and M. Goodwin. Join Princess Adrienne, her guardian dragon Sparky and a rough and tough sidekick named Bedelia, as they begin their own quest for adventure designed specifically for those who are tired of waiting to be rescued, and who are ready to save themselves.

Plus, as an added bonus, Princeless: Save Yourself contains a special, never-before-seen team-up short story between “Princeless” and “Skullkickers” written by Skullkickers creator Jim Zub and featuring the art of M. Goodwin. Skullkickers ( is Image Comics’ irreverent sword & sorcery action-comedy series, and we are proud to be able to present this team-up that will give fans of both series something fun and memorable.

Princeless: Save Yourself is the perfect chance to jump on board the series that Comics Alliance called “…the story Disney should’ve been telling for the past 20 years” and Comic Book Resources describes as \”…family friendly material that is filled to the brim with humor and intelligently crafted characters.”

Prepare to fight, hammer, and laugh your way right to the end with our prodigal princess and her friends in a one-of-kind fairy tale you don’t want to miss!
