Greet The Day With A Song In 'Ladycastle' #1 [Preview]
As Ladycastle #1 begins, Aeve is a princess in the grand Disney-esque tradition, singing a song to welcome in the day and introduce us to her world. But from the very beginning of this comic, things are a little off-kilter. Aeve's song is about the terrible cabin fever that she feels from being trapped in a tower, and her pet is a two-headed snake. Even at this point, before the narrative turns fairy tropes on their head as we know it will, it's clear that this world is different, and so is this princess.

In Boom's upcoming four-issue comic Ladycastle, as you might guess from the name, the women are in charge. But this isn't a utopian feminist world, or at least it didn't start that way. The women are in charge because almost all of the men are dead at the hands of a dragon. With more monsters on the way, the Princess Aeve and a blacksmith named Merinor must take charge. ComicsAlliance chatted with writer Delilah S. Dawson and artist Ashley A. Woods about their particular take on a kingdom ruled by women, and all of the elements that went into building this very special castle.
