She Ra: The Legend of the Fire Princess

Now I’m a huge She-Ra fan I love the creators work as well as her work with the Lumberjane comics, I’m not as familiar with the person who wrote this comic, but they did a great job keeping true to the universe and the different characters personalities.

The Legend of the Fire Princess

Summary

I’d say this book is set in late season 1 or early season 2. Even after being with the Rebellion for awhile life outside the Horde is still strange to Adora. She’s having to learn about the Rebellion’s customs and her powers as She-Ra, including abilities that just keep growing.

She learns she has the ability to heal corrupted runestones. Gems which help power the planet and the princesses of Etheria. Mermista, Frosta, and Perfuma each draw power from their runestones but Glimmer knows of another one with a dark past.

Long ago a princess with fire powers ruled the land to the west until a thirst for power corrupted her and lead to the ruin of her kingdom. Glimmer thinks the lost fire runestone could give them an advantage against the Horde, but Adora is unsure. And claiming the ancient power won’t be as easy as they thought especially when the Horde has their eyes on the exact same prize.

Don’t miss this original graphic novel based on stories by She-Ra showrunner and New York Times bestselling author Noelle Stevenson, with script by Gigi D.G. and art by Paulina Ganucheau!

Review

This was a very cute story nice self contained adventure, nice touch of mythology about Etheria, and especially a nice touch of foreshadowing for events in future seasons. It’s not so obvious if you haven’t seen future seasons however it’s a great Easter egg if you have. Overall I can’t wait to read more of the She-Ra graphic novels.

Rating: 5 out of 5.
