Grimm Fairy Tales #1 - $2.99 - order #AUG053318
A new take on the old Grimms tales, this time as if filtered through the

their website. The girl is intended to grab the average comics fanboy, and
the wolf to grab the furries.

they discover the horrible truth: Kevin was a rabbit, while Kell was a

angst-ridden son Rudy, and their infant Coney (a carnivorous rabbit) and
you have the makings of a functional family in a dysfunctional world.
