FIRST LOOK! Damsels in Excess #1

There’s just something exciting when it comes to the launch of a new property. And wouldn’t you know it? The excellent folks over at Aspen have decided to share a glimpse of their latest franchise with us. Based off of this, for me, there’s no doubt that it’s awesome.

Description: Five realms. Five princesses. Zero men.

In the land of the Five Realms, the existence of men has long since been evaporated from the hearts and minds of women. Princess Bethany–ruler of Evanfar, the largest and most prominent kingdom, finds herself at the center of a vast conspiracy that could not only threaten her kingdom—but also her life! Journey to a place where magic is abundant, unicorns and ferrets can command armies, and five women struggle to find balance—and power–in an ever-changing fairy tale world!
