    Princeless: The Pirate Princess is definitely one of the more oddball titles Ive ever been asked to review, but it was certainly a pleasant surprise. If youve got a daughter, or a son who isnt afraid of getting contact cooties, or even if youve got a few extra bucks to spare on something new, check this book out. It may not have all the intrigue and intricacies of a title like Avengers, but a lot of love went into this book, and it deserves to be read. Read Full Review

    Though I haven't read the first two volumes of the Princeless series, which is Princess Adrienne and Bedelia's stories, but just based on this one- I'll definitely buy the other two too. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Feb 12, 2015

    Overall though, this was one of the weaker issues in the series. It struggles with its identity as it tries to flesh out the world, but in doing so it forgets what came before. What of Adrienne's father and family? What of the bounty hunters still chasing Adrienne, one of which is Bedelia's own father? Granted for new readers this would confuse them to a degree" but that feeds back into my first question of why this side mission? I'll stick around for sure, but I hope the series finds its identity again. Right now it feels like this story is being told because it can be, not because it should be. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Feb 12, 2015

    Princeless: The Pirate Princess is the continuation of a previous Free Comic Book Day issue, one that many did not expect to see again. Fortunately, Whitley has brought the tale back with this mini, and it looks to be a blast. Pirate Princess is absolutely a great book for young readers. The art style and story structure are certainly entertaining for adults as well, but the book does feel more directed at children than an all-ages audience. Either way, Whitley continues to produce solid stories within the universe and proving time and again how strong female characters can exist, should exist, and are just as awesome as their male counterparts.
