Description

Don't miss the first epic She-Ra and the Princesses of Power graphic novel, based on stories by showrunner Noelle Stevenson!
Even after everything that's happened, the world outside the Horde's walls is still a strange one to Adora. Each day she's learning more about her growing powers as She-Ra, including something new: the ability to heal corrupted runestones. Runestones are the magical source from which princesses like Frosta, Mermista, and Perfuma draw their power, but Glimmer knows of another runestone -- one with a dark past. Long ago a fire princess ruled the lands to the west, until her thirst for power corrupted her, and led to the ruin of her kingdom. Glimmer thinks the lost fire runestone could give the Rebellion an edge in the fight against the Horde, but claiming this ancient power won't be easy... especially not when the Horde has their eyes set on the same prize.

Don't miss this original graphic novel based on stories by She-Ra showrunner and New York Times bestselling author Noelle Stevenson, with script by Gigi D.G. and art by Paulina Ganucheau!

Reviews

Praise for She-Ra: Legend of the Fire Princess:

What will really satisfy She-Ra fans is the space given to Adora and Catra's emotional conflict and broken friendship. Captures all of the charms of the animated show. -- Kirkus

For the Honor of Grayskull! Fans of the Dreamworks/Netflix team-up will rejoice at the first She-Ra graphic novel... the initiated will appreciate the spot-on characters, comic misunderstandings, magical peril, and a brief respite from the agony of waiting for the next season of the show. -- Bulletin for the Center for Children's Books

Praise for She-Ra and the Princesses of Power:
In rebooting the beloved series, Stevenson has created something special, a cartoon that both honors and improves on the original by amplifying its characters' feelings, and emits equal parts electricity, joy, and warmth. Like its titular hero, She-Ra is so full of heart that it's easy to recognize its humanity, even with all the super-powered hijinks going on. -- Vox

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is something special. The new Netflix series updates the '80s swordtech cartoon into a heroically right-now parable about empowered women teamworking against terror. The result is a funny-wonderful pop fantasy animated like disco fireworks, fun for kids of all genders and any parents looking for something happy to cry about. -- Entertainment Weekly

Etheria's fearless savior returns to television in dazzling animated form with She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, a reboot of the 1985 series that stays true to its roots while simultaneously reimagining the titular heroine for a new generation. -- IGN

She-Ra delivers fantastic sword-and-sorcery action, a compelling bit of world-building and mythology, and some of the most complex and honest portrayals of complicated relationships you'll find in an animated kids series... She-Ra and the Princesses of Power succeeds on all levels of storytelling, and is visually exciting, emotionally charged, and unexpectedly hilarious. It's one of the best new shows of the year and an easy recommendation for your watch-list. -- Collider
