As much as I hate to admit it, sometimes I miss the release of certain new comics. Not on purpose of course, but the volume of how much I read makes me glance over some new titles. I had been looking forward to Joe Books Disney Princess comic for quite some time. It wasn’t until I was leisurely browsing my local comic book store yesterday that I saw not one, but two issues! Anxious to see what the comic was like, I grabbed both. The comic is written and illustrated by Amy Mebberson, who I personally love. So, you might be thinking…why would I want to read a comic about Disney Princesses? I already know their stories…
I’m here to tell you that you’re wrong. Mebberson gives us a hilarious look at the everyday lives of these characters, most of which take place after their “happily ever after.” Here’s a few panels that I pulled from the issues.
I think all of us bookworms can relate to Belle’s issues above. It’s a panel meant to go viral with the “bookstagram” hashtag.
Girl problems, am I right? We all loved to look at Rapunzel hair pre-her chopping it all off. However, we never imagined the upkeep, did we?
Well, this is just funny. Pocahontas always looks so elegant blowing her hair in the wind. Finally, the wind fights back.
Trust me, you won’t be disappointed by the variety of characters that are featured throughout the comic. In fact, I was very surprised by how many characters were covered in two issues. I like the way Mebberson lays out the comic as well. Instead of each Princess having a few pages to herself, the panels are mixed up. Some stories are three panels long, others two pages. This creates a nice pace. The art is simply adorable, and well, I just can’t wait for another issue.
