Paul Jenkins and Humberto Ramos are self-publishing an independent comic series called Fairy Quest using fan-funding methods. Fairy Quest #1 was sold on a limited, convention-only basis a year ago, and the two creators want to reprint it so they can bring it to a wider audience and continue the series.

Fairy Quest #1 - Outlaws


Why did they even cover that..?

I wonder if these are from Pern. Fablewood includes a "Sci-Fi Land" after all.

I'm betting Grandma sold them out for bingo chips.

Paul Jenkins calls this the series Humberto Ramos was born to draw, and I agree. Beneath the cut you'll find their officially released six-page preview (I also got permission from Paul just in case), and here you'll find links to their Kickstarter (fan-funding project page) and FQ homepage if you want to help!

I kind of love it! :D

And that statue is super cool...I won't have money to chuck towards it for the next month or so, but I am gonna pledge something towards it once I can afford it! :)

I like the idea of kickstarter

That is the best Ramos art I have ever seen.

Makes sense, he has a very stylized and cartoonish art, which fits a fantasy story a bit more then a superhero comic.

What counts as "deviation" in this world? Can it be something minor, like if the Wolf imply puts Grandma in a closest, like they do in some of the more "kid friendly" versions, as oppose to eating her before Red shows up?

Any story that has the Wolf as an anti-hero is okay by my standards, maybe a little more if he is the Looney/DIsney/Tex Avery style...

This is remarkable art from Ramos, unlike anything of his I've seen before, but is the market not already saturated with revisionist fairy tale series? This one even seems to have echoes of, of all things, Shrek!

Woot.. I like the art! 8D

Grandma is pretty indoctrinated if she's willing to call down the authorities on Red and the Wolf for deviating. Especially since Grandma's role in the story is to be eaten alive.

She's older, so she's indoctrinated more..?

I'm half-hoping she gets eaten anyway. Is it wrong to think "serves her right" if that happens?
