Webcomic Blind Date 2013

It is February of 2013, and I have once again just participated in the Webcomic Beacon's Webcomic Blind Date, which pairs webcomic writers with webcomic artists. This year, I teamed up with Rod Salm, the creator of Death at Your Door. I wrote the comic's script, and Rod did the illustrations. I gave him NO guidance as to visuals (except to say that the speakers were both female), so those characters are all his, as is the setting. I am quite taken with the second-last panel. The finished product is below. As well, see beneath the comic for a link to a related song.




Aaaaaaaand here's a song I wrote on approximately the same subject. Think of it as the comic's musical accompaniment. Here, as well, is another song that is also about love.

As well, you should know that the fairy tales I'm referencing here are real ones. Here's the explanation I sent to Rod before he drew the strip:

Panel 2: a version of “The Frog King.” Actually, many versions of this tale end with the girl cutting off the frog’s head, but my favourite is called “The Well of the World’s End,” and you can find it here: http://www.authorama.com/english-fairy-tales-44.html

Panel 3: Again, this is a common tale type; an easily accessible version is the Grimm Brothers’ “All Fur” or “All-Kinds-of-Fur”: http://www.pitt.edu/~dash/grimm065.html

Panel 4; That would be the Grimms’ “The Brave Little Tailor”: http://www.pitt.edu/~dash/grimm020.html

Panel 5: This is a Russian story called “Vasilisa the Beautiful”: http://www.oldrussia.net/vas.html
