    The Rainbow Hub - Logan Dalton Jul 15, 2015

    With a breathtaking chase sequence that makes up the meat of the issue and art that is easy to follow, Pirate Princess #1 is accessible and entertaining even for readers who haven't read Princeless. (Like this reviewer.) It tells a story that sexist marketing companies would wrongly place in the "boy" category with two female characters, who aren't friends, but aren't enemies because they're fighting over a boy. Raven and Sunshine are both pirates, and Raven took Sunshine's money, hence, they're enemies. Writer Jeremy Whitley gives the beginnings of a believable arc for Raven as she struggles to become the Black Arrow, and this one of the many reasons why Pirate Princess #1 is a unique, fun, and slightly subversive entry in the pirate genre.
