What people are saying:

“Just got to read ANOTHER CASTLE #1 from @Wheeler & @PlinaGanucheau and @OniPress! It’s FANTASTIC and fun! I loved it!” Chip Zdarsky’s Twitter (Sex Criminals, Howard the Duck)

“Another Castle turns the fairy tale princess genre on its head. Exciting and clever, it gives you everything you could want in a princess story: a smart young woman, magical swords, pretty dresses, and a whole lot of PINK! Another Castle is really great!” Kean Soo (Jellaby, March Grand Prix)

“Another Castle is the fairy tale of my dreams, with beautiful artwork, ghoulish villains, and a tough-as-nails heroine. Your epic princess adventure is in Another Castle!” Betty Felon, Fashion Tips from Comics Strips

“It’s a fascinating twist on a familiar trope, and one that fits into a very promising trend of indie comic series that embrace female empowerment and ’90s nostalgia.”

“As in “your princess is in…”, Another Castle subverts one of my favorite tropes to break down: the princess who needs rescuing. When Princess Misty gets captured, she isn’t just about saving herself, or her own kingdom, but the kingdom under the rule of her captor. The best thing about Misty? She doesn’t feel like she has to choose between being pretty and being tough—she’s always ready to jump into action, even in her best dress.”

“A sword and sorcery comedy with a damsel most definitely not in distress saving herself.” School Library Journal

“One of 2016’s most buzzworthy books […]” Paste Magazine
“Here are […] princess characters to steer your kids toward who won’t make you cringe (I promise).” Comicosity

“Paulina Ganucheau started becoming one of my favorite artists in comics with her work on the gorgeous, adorable and action-packed Zodiac Starforce, so I’m super excited for this new series from Oni Press. Another Castle, which is written by Andrew Wheeler, is about a princess who’s also able to use her femininity as a strength.” Autostraddle
