Tricky Prince

Rating: ♦♦♦

I keep forgetting how much I like this artist. It was a nice treat for me to pick up this volume and rediscover her high quality art and quirky story lines. And, by quirky, I mean completely out in left field. Some of her other releases have had at least a passing acquaintance with logic, but this one seems to have thrown all of that out the window.

That’s okay though. After reading about sentient, humanoid cats who can fish in the desert for pieces of living room furniture, I’m about ready for anything.

Prince Willis has decided to go slumming and spend a year attending a public college. Eugene is an impoverished student who’s attending the college on a scholarship and has no time to waste on frivolous things like a prince. So, of course, Prince Willis is completely enthralled with Eugene and will do everything in his power to get Eugene to admit this as well.

Kidnapping, paparazzi, cross-dressing, mistaken identity, family drama and pervy teachers. It’s all here. Now, normally, something this wacky would have me bitching and moaning, but this release is so lighthearted and silly that it’s hard not to get sucked into the madness.

I don’t think I would have liked it as much if the art was crap. You really need gorgeous art to sell a story this insane. Maybe, I’m just happy that for once I’m not reading a school-boy romance from DMP.
