    This series is really good. I wasn't expecting this exact direction so soon in the series, but Naifeh is full of surprises. With just two issues this series has jumped way up on my list and I will be paying close attention to it in future issues. I'm not going to be as bold to say if you're looking for a book for your daughter to read or anything like that because again this book is relatable for anyone that's really ever felt alone at some point in their life. More than worth the money so check it out. Read Full Review

    This issue focuses on introducing the Academy, it's students, some staff, the various courses of study and ancillary activities. Not heavy on high adventure but I was wrapped up in the world from the first page to the last. There was not a single thing I didn't like so how can I give it anything less than a “5″? Naifeh's storytelling grabbed me by the brain and didn't let go until I hit the “next issue” page and I wanted more story NOW! We had just hit a teaser for court intrigue to come! Come On Ted, I WANT MORE! Well, I guess I'll wait another month, you have me hooked, sir! Read Full Review

    Gorgeous, inventive illustrations and a spunky protagonist make PRINCESS UGG an enjoyable title with a lot of promise for readers of many ages. The action isn't aggressively paced, but Naifeh is laying plenty of groundwork for a heartfelt coming-of-age story with lots of relatability and a diverse cast. I'm picking up hints of Wicked, Red Sonja, and Brave, which seems like a solid recipe for a story about strong female characters with more than one dimension. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Jul 15, 2014

    I'm still in love with the idea behind this series, but unfortunately this issue doesn't entertain enough and repeats itself way too much. The art continues to be compelling however and this issue will most likely work much nicer in a collected edition. Read Full Review

    Hopefully, with a few more issues, Naifeh can clear up some of the book's more problematic elements with exposition. Until then, "Princess Ugg" #2 is a simple, enjoyable read that brims with potential that it hasn't quite reached yet. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Rob McMonigal Jul 21, 2014

    Had there been more of this and less hammering home just how awful the others were, this issue would have been a pleasure to read. However, instead of telling a strong story that focuses on doing amazing work with a non-traditional character (such as Bold Riley) or spring-boarding off a trope to develop something new and positive (like Princeless), Princess Ugg can't get past the chance to make snarky digs at easy targets. Like Ulga herself, the reader is left longing for something more that Naifeh hasn't provided yet. The window for doing so is closing quickly. Read Full Review
