It’s probably fair to say that women in fantasy RPGs are the industry’s most highly endangered species.
I mean, these are women who take on entire monster-infested dwarven mines wearing nothing but a bit of moulded plate metal over their chests and a chainmail g-string.
If it’s not disembowelling, it’s probably going to be some kind of really nasty infection from all that… chafing.
Princeless is a great, fairly new comic book series aimed at kids. The protagonist is Princess Adrienne, who has decided to rescue herself. There are plenty of moments that mock standard comic book conventions. Here’s one about ladies’ armor.
Oh, good one!
I remember the subverted pin-up cover of this comic that was featured on Escher Girls that one time.
Considering it’s a kids comic, not young adult one, I’m starting to think that all those clever references in Princeless may fly over the heads of target audience.
