Action Labs Princeless gets Optioned

Finally getting some news out of SDCC on some options. The first one to come out is female friendly all ages comic Princeless.

These are no where to be found. There is one on Amazon and one on eBay but they are the same seller so it is probably the same book. The book was put out October 2011, the lowest print run on the top 300 selling comics for the month was 1,500 copies, so this has less than that many copies.

Before the Action Labs book came out, there was a very hard to find self published book from Firetower Press. Good luck finding one of them.



Sony Pictures has optioned movie rights to the Action Lab Comics series Princeless. Created by Jeremy Whitley and Emily Martin, the series follows a young black princess who, instead of waiting for a prince to save her, takes matters into her own hands. She breaks out of her tower, befriends the dragon guarding her, and sets off on a quest to rescue her six older sisters who are also locked in towers and guarded by assassins.

Stefani Robinson, a writer on Atlanta, Man Seeking Woman and FX/Marvel’s animated Deadpool, has been set to write the script. Anonymous Content’s Michael Sugar (Spotlight) will produce with Ashley Zalta for Columbia Pictures. Brittany Morrissey will oversee it for the studio.

The comic book series by Action Lab Comics and has been nominated for two Eisner Awards and won numerous other awards, including multiple Glyph Awards for Story of the Year, Best Writer and Best Female. Robinson is repped by Gersh, MGMT’s Dianne McGunigle and Ginsburg/Daniels.

  1. And you can consider about 50+ copies of the book utterly destroyed, lol. I happen to know that a teacher in my hometown ordered a pile of copies of the first Action Lab comic for use in her class.


    I picked up a copy of the #1 issue, I think one you had mentioned in your article. I saw another one on Ebay, the asking price was $299. How scarce is this book?
