Princess & The P.I.: Thompson & Drouhard On 'Mega Princess'
Mega Princesss, out next week from Boom, is an all-ages story about a young princess named Max who really wants to be a detective. She has a pony named Justine, who can be kind of a jerk, and because it's her birthday, her fairy godmother just gave her superpowers. To Max's disappointment, however, her superpowers come from the world's princesses, so they're mostly about dancing, charm, and being able to detect a pea under a pile of mattresses. But with her baby brother missing, Max is going to have to use her detective skills, her princess powers, and her powered-up Jerk Pony to solve the case. ComicsAlliance sat down with Mega Princess writer Kelly Thompson and artist Brianne Drouhard to talk about the feminist princess moment, building fantasy worlds, and the importance of a mean pony.
