The Storyteller's Daughter
The Storyteller's Daughter

Adapted from the tales found in The Arabian Nights. After being betrayed by his queen, a now vengeful king decides to marry once a month, killing each new bride the following morning. To change his heart, 17 year old Shahrazed, the vizier's daughter, entertains the king's court with a story, which by the next morning is not yet ended, thereby stalling his cold blooded plan and perhaps giving him a second chance at love.


A Tale Dark & Grimm
A Tale Dark & Grimm

Guess what kiddos? The original Grimm fairy tales are "awesome," "violent and...bloody," while "all the versions of the stories you've heard are mind-numbingly boring" due to sanitization. This is the story of Hansel and Gretel, two of the unluckiest children ever. Follow them as they have their heads cut off by their father, and attempt to outwit evil grownups who try to bake, kill or eat them. Not for the faint of heart!

In this retelling of Little Red Riding Hood, the girl in the red cloak isn't as defenseless as the old fairy tale would have you believe. She and her sister were attacked by the Fenris, or werewolves, at a young age and witnessed the murder of their grandmother. Now, armed with a razor-sharp hatchet, their mission is to stop the werewolves from preying on more young girls. And they're out for blood.

Fairy tales retold with Marvel superheroes filling in the classic roles of Pinocchio, Little Red Riding Hood, Tinkerbell, and others.
