Bride Of The Rose Beast By Michelle Krivanek
The Essence Of A Fairy Tale
Coming straight out of the successful Kickstarter that was funded in 2014 for the graphic novel Valor Anthology is a story by notable cartoonist, Michell Krivanek, called Bride Of The Rose Beast a fairy tale that captures the some of the best aspects of classic fairy tale stories. Michelle “Misha” Krivanek is a student 3RD-year student at the School Of Visual Arts (I took a summer class there!) In addition to making a webcomic series called Alice and the Nightmare she also does commissions as well, though they are currently closed you should stalk her page to see when they are open. For now, let’s talk about her short story.
The story of Bride Of The Rose Beast opens like a classic Disney animated movie. Honestly, the entire story reminded me of some of my favorite Disney movies like Beauty And The Beast and Mulan to name a few. The story revolves around a King and a Queen who want to have children but unfortunately couldn’t conceive any. As the story goes the Queen is greeted by a witch who helps by giving her two flowers to eat while telling her that she must only eat one or else there will be horrible consequences.
