(Hope this hasn't been posted here previously. I did a search and could not find anything referencing this title)

Browsing through blogs recently, I came across a reference to a web-only multi fairytale comic called No Rest for the Wicked Sounded interesting so I thought I'd check it out, although I'm not usually much of a comic/graphic novel fan (the story has to be really good for me to overlook the oddity/inconvenience of the way the text is generally set up in this format.) After reading the first chapter, I was hooked and read all the subsequent chapters the same night!

This story (still unfinished) uses elements of the Princess and the Pea, Red Riding Hood, Puss in Boots, Beauty and the Beast, Hansel and Gretel, Bearskin, The Handless Maiden, and a number of other tales to weave a very funny, sophisticated, beautifully drawn comic saga of one young woman's journey to adulthood and independence. Absolutely gorgeous and compulsively readable! I hope the artist/writer updates soon because I can hardly wait for the next installment.

That looks so good! thanks for the recommendation. I'm not huge comic/graphic novel fan either, but you might want to check out the fables series, which are about all the fairytale creatures who have excaped from an evil known only as 'the adversary' in their worlds, and now live in the safe haven that is our world.

I've been a big fan of this series, too, and try to encourage others to read it at any opportunity I can give.
