The Dark Side of Fairy Tales

We loved fairy tales as children and we still love them now. We especially love them dark.
Fairy tales bring the magic back into our lives, they tell us about ourselves and about others, about human nature, and link us to our ancestors: fairy tales have been told and retold for generations.
Lotte Reiniger, the silhouette animation pioneer and creator of The Adventures of Prince Achmed (1926) said:
” I believe in the truth of fairy-tales more than I believe in the truth in the newspaper.”
Here we reimagine our favourite tales as graphic novels and hope to have created an immersive, lasting reading experience.
