Erstwhile Kickstarter Brings Fairy Tale Comics to Print

Erstwhile cover

Gina Biggs, whom I’ve talked to in the past about her series Red String, has launched a Kickstarter project to publish her fairy tale comic Erstwhile.

The project has well exceeded the original goal with, at the time of writing, 23 days left to go. The main release will be a 136-page color hardcover collecting five lesser-known fairy tales. (One of which, “The Farmer’s Clever Daughter”, I previously reviewed when it was a stand-alone comic.) Another $2,000 in pledges, and two more short stories will be added to the book.

The stories are illustrated by Biggs, Louisa Roy, and Elle Skinner, and they’re told in the grimmer, more original versions. A $20 pledge will get you your own print copy in September. Higher amounts offer original art or extra comics. Or you can just read the webcomics.
