Disney Princess Comics Strips features her artwork, which renders the characters with their original designs, but also in Mebberson's distinct style. They're diminutive, with slightly oversized heads and big eyes, but still as familiar as they are adorable.
This volume collects the first four Disney Princess comics into a single edition, featuring Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Belle, Ariel, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Mulan, Rapunzel, Tiana and Merida (no Elsa, Anna or Moana though – their films hadn't been released at the time of publication, though I'm sure they'll turn up soon enough).
The comic strips provide humorous glimpses of the princesses' lives at any point of their stories: for instance, Rapunzel can appear in her tower, all her golden hair still intact, or at her parents' castle with Eugene, her brown hair in a bob. Ariel is still a mermaid (placing her *before* the events of the film) and Belle interacts with the Beast and the household objects at his castle (all obviously still under the spell).
Due to a strange directive of Roy Disney's, the Princesses in the line-up are never allowed to interact with each other on any official merchandise. Even when they're standing next to each other in a row, you'll notice that they never make eye contact with each other. That mandate is still in effect for these comic strips, so be warned that (unlike Pocket Princesses, which can be found easily on-line) all the characters featured here exist within their own stories.
So if you're putting this in the hands of a young princess-lover, they might be disappointed at the lack of cross-over, though the comic strips are funny, colourful and sweet, each one capturing the distinct personality of each heroine: Belle's love of books, Tiana's enthusiasm for cooking, Mulan's skills as a warrior, Ariel's spunk and curiosity ... some of the characters even benefit from the extra attention: let's be honest, the likes of Aurora and Snow White could use a little fleshing out.
In short, just what I expected from Amy Mebberson, and a great gift for any fan of Disney.
