Fairy Tales have captured our hearts for generations, appealing to our taste for adventure, horror, and romance. Erstwhile gives the lesser-known Grimm’s Tales the spotlight in these delightful adaptations.
You will find at this site a variety of fairy tales that rarely get told by three talented comic artists. Each creator brings their own flair and style to the adaptations. What you will not find are watered down or censored stories. We are telling the tales as they were told in the original source material. We will not change the endings to make them happy or less tragic. We are not in the business of making all stories a happily ever after. You have to remember, getting a real “fairy tale ending” is not always a pleasant thing for all parties involved.
Creators: There are three comic creators involved in this project, Gina Biggs, Louisa Roy, and Elle Skinner who are all members of Strawberry Comics. Each of these ladies has a love and fascination for fairy tales and hopes that you will enjoy the work to come!
Q: Are you planning to do more popular tales like Cinderella or Snow White?
A: No, there there are no immediate plans to adapt those stories. The Erstwhile project was created because we want to illustrate the lesser-known fairy tales.
Q: Can I link to your site?
A: YES, please do! We would be delighted if you shared your enjoyment of this site with others. We have some nifty banners made up for you to use, if you like.
Q: Do you do link exchanges?
A: Maybe. If your site has something to do with fairy tales, folk tales, or mythology we’re more than willing to consider.
Q: Can I send you fan art?
A: Yes. We would be most flattered to receive it!
Q: Can I review your comic for my zine/magazine/online site?
