Welcome to the world of Princess Quest! I'm here to present you with the first chapter of an adventure that will hopefully continue for many chapters to come. There's twenty-eight panels in this story, so it's quite image heavy (sorry for those of you with slow connections).

The comic features only LEGO bricks in it, with only a minimal amount of photoshopping to add the speach bubbles and the lighting effect in one panel. Again, I have to apologize for the shoddy quality of some of the photos, as I'm nowhere near a professional photographer. Hope you enjoy what I've created, anyway!

Without further ado, here it is:

Go Princess! I like the story very much, also the variation of fig pieces among your characters. I can see you don't have the king, but a nice improvisation! I can't wait till Chapter 2!

Nice! :thumbup:

A bit obvious what would happen perhaps, but it shows great promise, looking forward to the next chapter. :classic:
However, the text was a bit small in a couple of panels, especially panel 4. Maybe you should try a bit bigger font?

Woo! A Castle-based comic! I really liked this one, Sandy! Thought the ending may have been a tad predictable, it was a great story, with great scenery too. Awesome buildings, I particularly like the King's stand, very cool indeed and well fitted to the Castle '07 colour scheme, no red this time! :wink: Another great thing is the diversity of minifigs, you've really mixed everything up and it looks great! Sir Dancelot made me laugh. :laugh: I look forward to seeing what lies ahead for our brave Princess, I just hope it doesn't involve harming dragons, we have a very dragon-friendly attitude here in the H&A forum. :wink:

Nice work Sandy! Sure it was somewhat predictable, but in order to keep the series going, you had to set the Princess up early as being a capable warrior otherwise no one would be interested in a Character who sits around and brushes her hair every episode :tongue:
I look forward to more stories.

You seem to already have a great Castle collection building there, good stuff.

Comic On!

Welcome to Eurobricks Sandy.  What a great little comic you've created here.  The visuals/images are very nicely done with a very creative storyline.  I really like Sir Brickhart - there's something about his head/hair that really makes him look like a dwarf.

I look forward to reading Chaper 2.  I want that Wizard impulse set!

Signed,

Great work Sandy, it's nice to see a Castle comic :sweet:

The background buildings are very nice, I especially like the crowd stand and the Wizard's tower - the window is very neat. I don't think your photography is bad at all, most of the pictures are very nice. The speech bubbles are fairly good too, though they are a little pixelated and some of the writing is too small.

A very fine start Sandy, I look forward to the next chapter  :wink:

Sandy, welcome again!  :blush:

Looking at your comic, indeed puts a smile on my face. I enjoyed reading stories, especially Castle Fantasy stories. The photos and speechbubbles looks neat. Your photoshop skills is good too, at least better than me.  :tongue:  

Chapter 1 is an excellent start. Looking forward to your upcoming Chapters in Princess Quest.

You know, she sounds a lot like TLC's version of the Princess.

The King’s only daughter is beautiful and brave, but a little headstrong. When the Evil Wizard captured her, she tried to escape so many times that he had to lock her in the Skeleton Tower. Now she waits for a hero to come to her rescue…if she doesn’t get away herself first!

This is really great! You really seemed to have captured the spirit of the new castle theme.  :thumbup:

Speaking of which - I actually made a couple of photocomics that went with the Castle reviews I wrote for eurobricks. Yours are far better though.  :classic:

Thank you for all the lovely comments! :wub:

I've been away in Spain to be roasted by the sun, but I'm back now, and more Princess Quest is on the way. The second chapter will be a bit of a deviation from the comedy of the first, though...
