Four pages from FAIREST #11, in which we delve further into Rapunzel's time among the Japanese fables...

I can't believe it took me that long to get the joke of what they were going for in that last page.

As soon as they put her down the well I guessed what was up. Nice touch. ;)

Also, the art on the first page is gorgeous--the artist is killing it here.

I got Ring from it immediately, but it also reminds me of Exte, which is about a dead Rapunzel figure being kept and having her hair harvested for extensions (which kill people). I'm guessing long, evil hair is a bit of a trope in Japan.

Sort of a trope.

Traditionally Japanese women kept their hair long and pinned up - only taken down when they were buried. So long flowing hair on a lady - visual short hand for dead/ghost.

Also - as best as I can tell - there are rarely female japanese ghosts that don't want to torment the living for revenge.

This is also why ghost figures such as Sadako are usually shown wearing white. That's the color a corpse is dressed in for traditional shinto burial.
