Women in the medieval era of Knights and dragons weren’t exactly known for their independence and free will, until now!

Princess Aeve has been locked in a tower since she was twelve while her father King Mancastle and the rest of the townsmen go off in search for a suitable Prince for her to marry. On their most recent trip, however, a tragedy strikes leaving the women the sole inhabitants of the town and on top of that, a curse is lain upon them where monsters will attack until the curse is lifted.

What will the townswomen do now that their men are not returning? Well for a start they will do exactly what they want and what they are actually capable of instead of what they are told they can manage! And they damn sure aren’t going to let a little curse get the better of them, with a new King in charge things are a changing.

This looks like its going to be a really good comic and it’s a nice idea to have a medieval tale with the women in charge instead of in the background and subordinated to the males. It’s going to be interesting to see them hone their fighting skills as the threats against them undoubtedly get bigger

About Martin Cameron

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them. Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue. A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
