The Prince & The Sea


New comic (or storybook story, if you prefer) up today -- partly based on a dream I had, and inspired by Henry J Ford's illustrations from the Green/Blue/Yellow/etc,etc Fairy books edited by Andrew Lang.

Hope you enjoy! It's a horror/romance/black comedy (I daresay?), so heads up for some general unpleasantness.
