    A fun and serviceable comic book story that feels like it could have been an episode of the 'She-Ra and the Princesses of Power' TV series (set between seasons two and three, to be precise). There are no chapters or issues; just a stream flow of colour, magic, walking around and talking à la 'Lord of the Rings', friendships past and present, and battles. There is one mission: to find the runestone of the Fire Princess of legend, which is said to have wiped out its entire kingdom after its power A fun and serviceable comic book story that feels like it could have been an episode of the 'She-Ra and the Princesses of Power' TV series (set between seasons two and three, to be precise). There are no chapters or issues; just a stream flow of colour, magic, walking around and talking à la 'Lord of the Rings', friendships past and present, and battles. There is one mission: to find the runestone of the Fire Princess of legend, which is said to have wiped out its entire kingdom after its power corrupted the Fire Princess and left her heartbroken and alone in the end. Adora/She-Ra and her friends set off to find the runestone in order to possibly heal it and use it for the Horde vs the Rebellion war on Etheria, or destroy it if necessary. I really like the funny banter amongst Adora, her Best Friends Squad, and the other princesses; especially from Mermista (my favourite princess besides She-Ra and Scorpia) and Bow. And I especially love the hilarious, heartwarming and kind of sad relationship of the buddy duo Catra and Scorpia (highly reluctantly on Catra's part). Scorpia is too precious. There is a lot from Entrapta as well. Nearly everyone gets their chance to shine, to develop. Just... don't expect anything epic, or anything spectacular on a larger scale. There are nice little character moments, and lessons learned between friends, but this is a short graphic novel, so full potential is not given to some individual characters, like Perfuma, and even Adora, bizarrely. The Legend of the Fire Princess itself, which, as the title of the book, you'd think would have a huge impact on the story and the characters, in fact barely factors in for the majority of it all. It's only given potent significance at the beginning, when the legend is first told to Adora (and the reader), and at the end, when further thoughts are given to it and what the characters have learned from it based on their own recent experiences. Its themes are subtle throughout the adventure, and then it's treated like an overt cautionary tale. She-Ra's struggles and development throughout happen at a fast pace; perhaps not given the weight it deserves. There is hardly an attempt at a parallel between She-Ra and the tragic Fire Princess. At least it's clear that She-Ra/Adora has loving and supportive friends by her side, who share in her power, and who love best friend hugs. Also, the artwork by the great Paulina Ganucheau of 'Zodiac Starforce' fame, while fitting and similar to the cartoon for the most part, can be a bit awkward-looking, when it comes to facial expressions. And mouths and teeth *shudders*. But 'The Legend of the Fire Princess (She-Ra Graphic Novel #1)' is still sweet, funny, emotional, and dynamic for any 'She-Ra and the Princesses of Power' fan. It's an episode in comic form, and there's nothing wrong with that. It's faithful in that it is very gay and femme (Bow and Hordak are the only male characters) - I love the all-ages show for that. So I love this comic by an all-female creative team. (Gigi D.G. of 'Cucumber Quest' fame wrote the script - squeeee!) I'll leave off my latest review of a 'She-Ra' related product by paraphrasing what I've said about 'The Princesses of Power' in past blog posts: 'It's an imperfect, colourful (in far more ways than one) little girl power gem of an animated series, for our times. It's magical girl power with depth and great relationship drama - so emotional, tragic even.' What a commendable cartoon reboot. (Sorry if this review is short for my usual style on books such as this. I'm quite sick at the time of writing) Final Score: 3.5/5

    Ages and ages ago, before the world is as it is now, an extremely powerful object existed. It had the power to control all the world, all the universe.

It had the power to control all the world, all the universe. And this object came into the hands of a kind ruler (whose name is lost to time), who thought for certain she had the power to control this object. She vowed to use it for only good and peaceful things... But all too soon the object and its power became an obsession for this ruler. It changed her. It took control of her mind and body and soon she was but a puppet to its terrible power. It was because of this the kingdom, the surrounding areas, and all who lived within, were completely and utterly obliterated. Shortly after, the object of power was lost, becoming only a legend once more (and many today don't even think the the stories are true) But there are whisperings that the object of power has resurfaced. And that the enemy is seeking it so it can be used for evil. Thus, a Hobbit by the name of Frodo Baggins, along with the rest of the Fellowship, is sent to... Damn! Wrong story... Can you blame me, though? It was an honest mistake Ok... I've got this: This reboot has She-Ra and Pals looking for a lost, all-power Runestone before Sauron...I mean The Horde can get his hands on it. Because you know he will use it for nothing but evil. Because that's what bad guys do, isn't it? So the princesses (along with the token dude) go on a quest. The end goal is to, hopefully, find the Runestone before the bad guys get to it and, hopefully, destroy it...or at least make it so no one can use it. Because everyone knows that all-powerful objects cannot be controlled and will eventually corrupt whoever attempts to wield it... no matter if they intend to use it for good. Well...SOME still think they can control it (Glimmer: "My...Precious") Anyway, you can guess what happens: The good guys win, the bad guys lose, the Runstone is disabled, and the story doesn't take nine hours (and three movies) to tell. But no more spoilers. This first volume was cute, the artwork was bright and colorful, and the story was fun...albeit a bit predictable. I didn't love it like I did Jem and the Holograms or Lumberjanes. But I recall watching the She-Ra cartoon as a kid and it was fun to revisit the characters. This series should make for a fun ride.

    “Aren’t you keeping cool enough with your whole midriff out?” “You leave my midriff out of this.” The new She-Ra is one of my favourite shows so finding out that they were going to be coming out with graphic novels about the series was so exciting for me, and this certainly did not disappoint. This tells a story from inside the She-Ra universe we haven't seen before, set sometime around season 2 or 3 I'd guess, and follows our main characters as they attempt to find the legendary fire runeston “Aren’t you keeping cool enough with your whole midriff out?” “You leave my midriff out of this.” The new She-Ra is one of my favourite shows so finding out that they were going to be coming out with graphic novels about the series was so exciting for me, and this certainly did not disappoint. This tells a story from inside the She-Ra universe we haven't seen before, set sometime around season 2 or 3 I'd guess, and follows our main characters as they attempt to find the legendary fire runestone which has been lost for a long time after its princess destroyed her kingdom with it. I love that this feels like it could realistically be a side quest from the show that we just never saw even if it never makes it completely clear when it's set. In general I'm always a little iffy on art drawn of any animated property, whether its fanart or comics, but once I was able to get past the different style I really enjoyed Paulina Ganucheau's art. It feels very in tone with the show while also being different, something which I'm probably not explaining right but it makes sense if you've read it. This is full of tiny character moments, which is my favourite part of She-Ra in general. Gigi D.G. and Ganucheau really understand the dynamics between the characters, from the ex-girlfriends feeling of Adora and Catra's relationship to the ride-or-die found family dynamic that Adora, Glimmer and Bow have. This graphic novel also singlehandedly made me way more on board with Scorpia and Catra as a pairing, something which the show and fan works have never been able to do. If you're a She-Ra fan then I can't see you not liking this. It feels exactly like a more fillery episode from the show in the best way possible and I would highly recommend (I don't know if this needs to be said, but if you haven't seen the show then don't read it, you probably won't enjoy it).

    The Legend of the Fire Princess has the feel of an episode of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, to the point I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out this was adapted from a screenplay that didn't make the cut. It's a perfectly serviceable story with most of the characters you know and love from the animation. The artwork by Paulina Ganucheau (of Zodiac Starforce, another comic She-Ra fans should take note of) is perfect for translating Princesses of Power into comic form.

We get the usual lovely character and relationship-building moments the animation's so renowned for, in this case the interaction between Catra and Scorpia. Adora and Glimmer get some good moments in too. Unfortunately, Bow and the other princesses don't receive as much focus. At least Entrapta gets some amusing moments. All in all, The Legend of the Fire Princess looks great and is written pretty well. I hope to see a full comic book series in the future.

    A disposable paint-by-numbers media tie-in: quest, conflict, hurt feelings, friendship. Good thing: Scorpia and Entrapta, my favorite characters, have some nice moments that rang true to the show. Bad thing: Frosta is in the book from the start but her character name is not actually mentioned until page 100. Not good for people who aren't fully familiar with the show.

My daughter and I watch and enjoy this together. This is a new graphical novel based on the Netflix reboot of She-Ra, the somewhat cheesy 80's spinoff of (possibly even more cheesy) He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. The new reboot has received a lot of praise for its portrayal of diversity in the cast and the relationships between characters, with an almost all female cast. I personally enjoy the series a lot - even if the plots are made for a bit younger audience, the snappy dialogue and character interactions are enough to keep even an older viewer entertained - and not just for nostalgia. There is something here for both my daughter and I to enjoy together. The art style, if a bit simpler, serves well and everyone looks like the animation. Writing is good and zingers fly just like in the animated version. I can easily see how this would work as an animated episode and perhaps that is where I would have hoped for a bit more. An animated, 20min episode has a limited space into which fit all the character development, buildup and action. This graphic novel has almost 200 pages and one could hope that we could delve much deeper into things there just isn't time for in a fast paced action animation. The graphic novel doesn't really make use of this opportunity, so if you're hoping to pick this up in order to learn more about our heroines or insight into the mysteries of Etheria you'll unfortunately be (mostly) disappointed. Our titular Fire Princess is of course new but the revelations here do not really play out into the greater plot arc. Story: Fitting in between seasons two and three, the story of the Fire Princess (who is not mentioned in the animation) covers one of the princesses of power, but one who has mostly fallen into myth and legend. Both the Horde and our heroes have their reasons to start looking into this (about at the same time). If you've watched the show, you've seen this exact plot structure played out several times before - and it very predictably plays out the same away again. perhaps for a young reader this is great, but for an adult you'd expect a bit more. Still despite this all, this graphic novel fits perfectly into the world of the series. If you love the animation there no reason why you won't enjoy this as well - especially if you starved for new content while waiting for the next season to be released. Reviewed from an advance reader copy provided by the publisher.

This book is for collectors or super fans. The art is gorgeous and vibrant, the characters spot-on to their personalities in the show. Bow is hands-down the cutest bean and I will forever love him. I read this from the library, and if you're not wanting to spend money on a filler episode for a show that's already got a complete story arc, I would recommend you do the same.

    Very cute and very fun. This would have been a great episode for the show. The characters feel true to form, and the art is a treat for the eye. My favorite was knowing the ending of the show and seeing Adora react to Catra spending more time with Scorpia, and the parallels between what happened to the Fire Princess and her "friend" and the dynamic between Adora and Catra. Cute, and I hope we get more graphic novels soon (especially post-S5)! Very cute and very fun. This would have been a great episode for the show.

    Excellent An excellent short story that I feel would've made a great 2 parter episode if they had chosen to animate it. The art was lovely and the writing was in tune with the tv writing of the characters themselves. It also brings to light more of some characters attitudes that viewers see in the show itself. It was nice learning more about other princesses of Etheria as well. I can't wait for the next book!

I really enjoyed The Legend of the Fire Princess, it fit right in with the TV episodes, both in dialogue and story. The story follows the Princesses as they search for a potentially mythical runestone, the Spirit Ember. It filled in the gap of the missing fire princess, since the other three elements were represented in the show as powers, but I always thought it was odd that fire was absent. The banter between characters was spot on, and I loved Paula Ganucheau's art. It fit the style of the show really well while still being unique. I believe The Legend of the Fire Princess takes place after season 2, but I think as long as you've watched the first season nothing should be too spoilery. If you haven't watched the show before, I'd hold out on heading this until you get to, so you don't get spoiled and to make it easier to follow, since the reader is expected to know the characters going into the story. If you're a fan of the show, definitely pick this up! It's got some fun moments (Scorpia's part was my fav) and there's lots of girls blushing because of other girls (aka it's not-so-subtly GAAAAAY).

    I'm going to be honest, this was a bit of a disappointment. The story itself seems like an adventure/story we'd get in the show but there were some serious issues with consistency with the show. At times the characters seemed to stay true to form but there were a few times where they also acted very out of character. It kind of killed this one for me. I'm a bit sad about it.

    This was a great graphic episode to the She-Ra canon. It had all of the princesses which leads to so many more shenanigans and fun. As with the show it warmed my heart but still never felt like there is enough Scorpia. Seriously, when is Scorpia going to get her own show and graphic series? I would buy ALL of it!!

Honestly, that deserves a shout-out to the colorist, Eva de la Cruz, as well for maintaining the colorful palette of the show. All of that, plus the story being so in keeping with the tone and themes of the TV show, make it feel like I'm experiencing another episode of the show, while also taking advantage of how the comics medium differs from animation. I wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone who enjoys the Netflix She-Ra show and can't wait for the next season! All of that said, I do have one complaint that keeps me from giving this comic five stars, and that is the lettering. I know this seems minor, especially since it's not about the font, but there are several moments where the word balloon placement is confusing, or where the tail is pointed at the wrong character. Fortunately, the dialogue is written so strongly that you can tell which character is supposed to be saying the lines that way, but you shouldn't have to resort to that to make sense of it. Seriously, I have never encountered this level of confusion in any professionally produced comic before, and it happens numerous times throughout the book. I don't want to throw the letterer under the bus, but this just feels like a rushed, inattentive job, and it detracted from an otherwise positive reading experience. I suppose lettering in comics is like sound in movies—it doesn't matter how good or bad the visuals are, if the sound (lettering) is bad, that's all you'll notice. Fortunately, the majority of the book is so well-crafted, so my experience wasn't completely ruined by the bad lettering job. Like I said, it feels like the lettering just wasn't done carefully. The balloons and text look good; it just doesn't do a good job of telling you who's talking. So, yeah, unless they go back and revise the lettering (which seems unlikely for a licensed tie-in book), this is just a fun book, and definitely something this adult fan of She-Ra can appreciate!

    This was excellent. Such a fun, easy read read; embodying the show but also having more time to explore the relationships between the characters. The story was great, everyone was in character, and the art was gorgeous. Also, I love how queer-coded this was (same with the show, too). The Fire Princess sure was “close friends” with that neighbouring princess... ;) Highly recommended for all fans of the show.

Turns out there was another princess on Etheria a long time ago, The Fire Princess, who with a tragic back story died a left no heirs. Now both teams will try and go after the fire rune stone in hopes it will give their side the extra power they need to win their fight for Etheria. The hilarious group dynamics as both teams travel to the fire stone are priceless. As is typical with She-Ra, the themes and discussions are much deeper then you'd assume a cartoon would offer, such as healthy relationships and not pushing yourself too hard.

    Great new story in the same vein as the show. My 8 year old loves it.

    My favourite sort of TV series tie-in: a new story that adds to the lore but doesn't disadvantage people who only watch the show. This would fit in so well as another episode in the TV series. The characterisation was spot-on, and the art was lovely and familiar. It was interesting seeing that in some ways, the dynamic between Catra and Scorpia is stronger than that between the Princesses, showing that the Princesses are not working together as a team yet. Two points of small criticism: 1) I notice My favourite sort of TV series tie-in: a new story that adds to the lore but doesn't disadvantage people who only watch the show.

Two points of small criticism: 1) I noticed a few speech bubbles did not correctly indicate the speaker. This was a mild annoyance, as it was clear enough who was supposed to say the line. 2) I suspect this graphic novel is not very newbie friendly, as you are expected to have some understanding of who all these people are. Overall, I would recommend this to fans of the series!

    Beautifully illustrated. Feels like an episode of She-Ra. You can hear the voices as you read it, which is fun. Nothing particularly epic happens, which was disappointing. Though, I did appreciate the comfort of a one-off adventure. With exception of some major (obvious, spoiler-related) plot points, I didn’t have to worry too much about where in the series I was. It was easy to think to myself “okay, this clearly happened before x,y,z, but not have to pin-point anything further. A nice treat fo Beautifully illustrated. Feels like an episode of She-Ra.

A nice treat for the eyes and mind and I’ll definitely get the next one when/if it comes out.

    feels just like watching an episode of the show!! a really good story, amazing art. taking off a whole star because the font was SO HARD TO READ. it hurt my eyes?? it's weirdly embellished and I don't understand why. other than that though, loved this book. feels just like watching an episode of the show!! a really good story, amazing art. taking off a whole star because the font was SO HARD TO READ. it hurt my eyes?? it's weirdly embellished and I don't understand why. other than that though, loved this book.
