Trouble is brewing back in Grimmeria, but √úlga's studies are steadily improving, much to the astonishment of her peers and teachers. She even catches the eye of a handsome guard captain. But √úlga is still a Grimmerian at heart - which will come in handy when her carriage is besieged by bandits!

    There's still plenty of twists and turns for the story to take. I learned that with the first arc; where you think Naifeh is taking the story is often times not the case. Hell sometimes he screws with the readers and takes them where they expect, but then he'll flip everything on its head in the process. The point I'm getting at is that I'm already waiting for the next issues release and if you haven't been reading Princess Ugg this is a great place to start. Read Full Review

    Princess Ugg is charming and inspiring, as Naifeh has me totally cheering for this underdog in Ulga. The only thing missing as of late is action, but it appears as if we are about to get a large dose of that in upcoming chapters. As I have mentioned in my previous reviews, the story covers all kinds of pertinent social topics such as bullying and literacy concerns. It also uncovers both the necessities and consequences of war. The series is a well written and beautifully illustrated tale that is worth a pull. Read Full Review

    If there were ever a book to give to a girl - or anyone for that matter - who felt like they didn't belong, this would be one of the most perfect. Issue #5 of Princess Ugg continues to show that the series is quickly becoming one of the most feminist, inspiring, and heartfelt out there right now. Read Full Review

    Princess Ugg #5 is an unfortunate miss in an otherwise excellent series. If you've been reading along than pick up this issue and hope, like myself, that this is a rare misstep for Ted Naifeh, not signifying the downfall of an entire series. Read Full Review

    Ugla's gotten quite good at playing the game of diplomacy, and now that she has all of the rules under her belt, "Princess Ugg" #5 kicks the series into high gear. This is a good next chapter for the title, and I'm now quite looking forward to what happens next. All in all, good stuff. Read Full Review
