Kel McDonald (of Sorcery 101 fame) just tweeted a link to this Tumblr blog, which details plans for a Webcomic Fairytale Anthology. I suspected we'd be seeing more multi-creator anthologies in the coming months, and this one seems a particularly good match for the folks involved. Appropriately, McDonald is taking on a werewolf tale, the French story "Bisclavret." We've also got Evan Dahm (Rice Boy, etc.) on Hans Christian Andersen's "The Nightingale," KC Green (Gunshow) illustrating the surreal "The Singing Bone," Amanda Lafrenias (Love Me Nice) on "Thumbelina," and much more. It may not be as big a seller as I'm sure Spike's Smut Peddler will be, but we should be getting some visually very interesting stuff out of this.
One bone to pick, though: why aren't Jenn Jordan and Sophie Goldstein on this puppy? It's solidly in their wheelhouse, and I'd love to see what they'd come up with.
