[Preview] Action Lab’s 2/21 Release: PRINCELESS: RAVEN, THE PIRATE PRINCESS – Year Two #5

Raven Year 2

This Wednesday, Action Lab Entertainment has the fifth issue of the second year for PRINCELESS: RAVEN, THE PIRATE PRINCESS!

RAVEN is a pirate revenge adventure, a soap opera full of messy teenage love stories, and about a dozen coming of age stories set on the high seas. Think “Legend of Korra” at sea with an all female cast.

This series has one of the most diverse and exciting casts of any comic on the market. It’s full of action, adventure, and revenge – but even more full of love stories and soap operas. RAVEN is one of the first YA comics with an openly gay leading lady. But on top of that it has a cast of women who represent a wide spectrum of the LGBTQ community. It’s equal parts soap opera and actual opera.

It’s been a month since the devastating attack on the ship and Raven and her crew are finally back on course.  Some wounds are healing, but some are a little deeper.  Now that everyone is beginning to come to terms with the loss of Sunshine, Ximena is wondering if it’s finally okay to make her move on Raven. Somebody will end up kissing by the end of the night, but it’s not who you think.  And, hey, what ever did happen to Sunshine?
