In a trailer for Mera: Tidebreaker, DCInk’s upcoming Young Adult graphic novel forces the princess to choose between her duty and her feelings for Arthur Curry.

Known for her acclaimed re-imaginations of well-known characters in the bestselling series Dorothy Must Die and Stealing Snow, Danielle Paige brings her signature storytelling to the DC universe in her first graphic novel, transforming one of DC’s most popular characters into a fiery teenager who may look like a princess but is no one’s damsel in distress.

“Mera has her own epic saga which begins long before she meets Aquaman. In Mera: Tidebreaker, we follow Mera from her warrior princess beginnings to her not-so-cute meet with Arthur Curry a.k.a. Aquaman. Mera is poised to kill Arthur, only to find that her mission is complicated by the feelings she begins to develop for the future king. Drawn by the incredible artist Stephen Byrne and beautifully colored by David Calderon, Mera has to choose between duty or love…and possibly stop a war,” Paige said in a statement.

Mera: Tidebreaker is available to preorder now and will go on sale April 2.
