She-Ra and The Princesses of Power was a Netflix series and a reboot of the original 80’s She-Ra Princess of Power. Although I watched a few episodes of the Netflix series (and did not grow up with the original series), I did really love the designs of the main characters in the reboot, especially the main protagonist, She-Ra.
I came into this graphic novel with a bit of knowledge from the reboot. I admittedly did see spoilers on my feed from the finale. However, I was curious about the journey in between.
This graphic novel is something extra and supplementary. It seems to be something which is in between a few episodes, likely somewhere around the second or third season. I personally would recommend going through all five seasons before reading this, as there us some context and details I did miss.
As with any graphic novels, the art is an important part of the story. I did enjoy the artwork. Its style was a bit different from the main series, especially in terms of the characters. There were some instances where the artwork did look a bit inconsistent in its appearance, especially if you compare the start and ending parts of the novel. But the small details and environments, as well as the character’s expressions, were some of the strongest parts in terms of art.
The plot was fast-paced, something I’ve noticed I enjoy in many stories, especially when I look at my Story Graph stats and see that I usually read fast-paced books.
I think this graphic novel would be perfect for people who watched the Netflix series and want to enjoy more content. Hopefully, there will be even more She-Ra graphic novels in the future!
