    Raven is a different sort of Pirate Captain and that just may not be a bad thing at all. Read Full Review

    What I love the most is seeing the interaction between all the ladies as they settle in as crew members; while it's not all fun and games it does lead up to some very important teachable moments and points for representation " there's one with our hijab-wearing crewmate below. There's also a member of the squad, Cid, who is deaf. I'm hoping to see more of both of them as the series progresses. Read Full Review

    'Princeless: Raven the Pirate Princess' is about the characters, how they interact, who they are, how they treat each other and what their place is in the book. Where some writers skimp on character development, Whitley soaks in it, drawing every bit of personality and nuance from his leads. If you're looking for a lot of action at the expense of character then this isn't the book for you. If you're looking for a great story to get lost in with a diverse group of smart characters then 'Raven the Pirate Princess' is the one for you. Read Full Review

    The final page of Raven Pirate Princess #5 reveals its cheeky, meta title "On a Ship, Every Episode is a Bottle Episode". Jeremy Whitley, Rosy Higgins, Ted Brandt, and William Blankenship keep the action confined to the ship and introduce wave after wave of character. Some stick and some don't, but Whitley crafts some solid moments in his writing like Raven's philosophy behind running the ship, or Sunshine backing up Jayla when Raven scolds her for putting ginger in Sunshine's mouth. Because she is a scientist in a world relatively new to it, Jayla is afraid of putting her thoughts out there and isn't used to being among people who consider her equals. Higgins and Brandt's faces and character designs make the new additions memorable some of the time, and it will be interesting to see how the partially united, partially dysfunctional crew fares once they face their first internal threat.
