Having wrapped his landmark Courtney Crumrin series last year, artist Ted Naifeh is set to launch his next ongoing series at Oni Press with Princess Ugg #1 on June 4. The book stars Princess Ülga of Grimmeria, a barbarian from the land of Grimmeria who has made her way into polite society to attend Princess Academy riding the back of her trusty war mammoth. Celebrating the series' launch, Battlepug creator Mike Norton has swapped his series' dog-riding warrior with Ülga for a special variant crossing Ugg with pug. Oni's provided us with a first look at the cover, along with 10 interior pages from Princess Ugg #1, which you can check out after the cut.

From Oni's official solicitation info.

Within the fairy-tale kingdom of Atraesca lies the prestigious Princess Academy, where young royals from all the five kingdoms come to get their education. But they've never before seen the like of Princess Ülga of Grimmeria. Armed with axe and sword, riding her war mammoth through the city gates, Ülga has come in search of schooling. But this barbarian princess might just end up schooling the people of Atraesca before that happens!

You can preview Norton's Battlepug crossover cover and a selection of 10 pages from Princess Ugg #1 below.
