East Bay Comics Trail Signing: Ted Naifeh at Trickster & Fantastic (9/17)

The most recent project from Princess Ugg creator Ted Naifeh takes the superhero genre and mashes it up with a medieval fantasy world. Night Dominion is a slight break for Naifeh who’s earned a hefty stack of Harvey’s and Emmy’s creating young adult comics with strong female protagonists. Naifeh told the AV Club the title is more mature than some of his previous work but it still has a strong female character at the head. “It’s been nice to not worry about whether my main character looks cute,” he said, “I want her harsh and formidable, like her world.”

Naifeh, who’s based in the Bay Area, is hosting a dual launch party along the Berkeley segment of the East Bay Comics Trail. He’ll start off with a 4 p.m. signing at Fantastic Comics at 2026 Shattuck Avenue. After the signing, he’ll head across town to Trickster, 2631 Ashby Avenue, for a 7 p.m. reception and art show.

Signing: Princess Ugg’s Ted Naifeh On June 7 at Isotope

BnntdahIUAACqP5My niece and nephew are both reaching an age where I can start shaping them to be better humans via the influence of comics. My nephew is easy as he’s already awash in all things Batman and Super Hero Squad. My niece, she’s a tougher egg to crack as she’s been led straight down the Disney princess path. There’s a cure for that: Princess Ugg.

From Oni Press:

Within the fairy-tale kingdom of Atraesca lies the prestigious Princess Academy, where young royals from all the five kingdoms come to get their education. But they’ve never before seen the like of Princess Ülga of Grimmeria. Armed with axe and sword, riding her war mammoth through the city gates, Ülga has come in search of schooling. But this barbarian princess might just end up schooling the people of Atraesca before that happens!

Princess Ugg is a new project by one-time Harvey Award nominee and two-time Eisner Award nominee Ted Naifeh. The writer/illustrator received his Eisner nods for his work on Courtney Crumrin and the Harvey nod for Polly and the Pirates. Naifeh will be appearing at Isotope – The Comic Book Lounge, 326 Fell Street in San Francisco, on June 7 between noon and 5 p.m.
