In an extraordinary land full of extraordinary people, what does it really mean to be ordinary? That’s what we discover in Extraordinary: The Story of an Ordinary Princess, inspired by M. M. Kaye’s beloved novel! Journey with Princess Basil, a princess whose gift is simply to be ordinary. Portland comics artist and writer Cassie Anderson (Lifeformed) takes her webcomic out of the digital world for the first time in this tale of magical adventure, full of soul and humor for readers of all ages.

In her quest to be more than just ordinary, Basil tracks down the fairy godmother who “blessed” her, and learns the answer to her ordinariness might more challenging than it appears. Follow along on her expedition as she escapes unusual kidnappings, gnomes, snarky foxes, and a badger or two, and along the way learns just what it takes to be extraordinary.

The exquisite Extraordinary: The Story of an Ordinary Princess comes to your local comic shop July 24, 2019, and is available for pre-order on Amazon and Barnes & Noble and at your local comic shop.

Praise for Lifeformed: Cleo Makes Contact “Anderson’s clean drawing style is easy on the eyes, but also depicts the characters’ emotions in a varied manner that gives the characters’ personalities depth.”—Comic Book Bin

“Buy It! Lifeformed will appeal to readers of any age who enjoy a well-written alien encounter tale.”—Rogues Portal

“Cleo is smart, smart-mouthed, and willing to learn how to survive. Her new friend, despite his appearance, is not her father; yet, they form a bond that irrevocably changes our hero-in-the-making. Yes, there are aliens looking to take over the world, but that is only one speck of a star in the night sky compared to the larger, amazingly wonderful universe of a story being told… Lifeformed is an intense, engaging story that readers will want to finish in one sitting.”—Fanbase Press

“Lifeformed: Cleo Makes Contact is everything marvelous about the comic book medium. This graphic novel proves that comics are sophisticated, whimsical, and vivacious all in one fell swoop. Not only do we have spectacular character development and art, we have a story here.” –The Daily Fandom
