"Erstwhile" is a webcomic project that takes the Grimm fairy tales and illustrates them in various artists' styles.
I've randomly chosen a bit of "Brother and Sister" to give you a taste of the wonders in store.
( Once upon a time, there were a brother and sister, who lived with an evil stepmother and her one-eyed daughter... )
The webcomic can be found here: http://www.erstwhiletales.com/ where they are currently telling the tale of King Thrushbeard.

And now it's gone.
All that can be done now is to honor it's memory.

I wish I had made some posts about this comic before. I don't know if it would have helped Mark Leiknes keep it going but now we'll never know.
If you want to check out more of this the site is still up here. Reruns of the strip are on gocomics here
I don't know how to describe this comic other than that it leaves me smiling every single page. It's about teenagers investigating mysteries. It's adventurous and happy and essentially pure fun in visual form. I don't know how he does it.
Mild spoilers below cut, but nothing big really.( Wear a coat when it's cold. Be less angry at everything )
"I was going to hold off mentioning this until the new strip went up, but I’ve been receiving a lot of e-mails/messages so I figure it’s best to put it out there now:
Due to my workload, I will not be accepting any commissions for the foreseeable future, and most certainly not anything that would possibly be done in time for Christmas."
