Grimm Fairy Tales

I heard about the Grimm Fairy Tale Comics at WonderCon, and I was intrigued. I think the idea of updating fairy tales is a intriguing idea, and I am not talking about the sapfest Enchanted. Making it more dark and sick like the original Grimm Brothers intended. Well, I got a volume of the first series of issues and what crap. It kind of promotes the stereotype that comic book artists are nerdy guys who could never get girls so they have to draw them. The women in there are ridiculously slutty and porn star like and strut around with inecessarily skanky outfits. With the dumbest stories- like in Little Red Riding Hood, the woodsman was so in lust for LRRH that he turned into a flesheating wolf because she drove him insane with lust. Like it’s Red’s fault for being so slutty. It makes the Sleeping Beauty series seem like Shakespeare (not likeI’ve read them….)
Examples:

I think Cinderella is going to get some serious back problems trying to run away with that chest:

The Wicked Witch shops at Frederick’s of Hollywood and at Rave.

Um, yea.

Heterosexuality is so gross sometimes.

  1. This is horrible. I wish there was a way to unsee this. Just when I think comics are coming around and becoming a better place for women I am reminded with a slap of slutty porn star fake boob that nothing has changed at all.

    I can’t believe these have been around since 2005 – I guess I was lucky to miss them until now. Horrible.

  2. Im a women,it’s just art its not meant to offend. The comics are awesome as hell their full of tons of gore and massacres which is freaking amazing and the drawings are so intense and being a artist myself their beautiful to me. Who cares if their slutty it’s all the more fun and eye catching. Just because the artist enjoys getting a boner when he draws doesn’t mean he can’t respect women. It’s art period. Ive met the guys who made this comic and their pretty awesome. It’s a good and fun read it’s not Anne rice but it’s pretty amazing.
