Megan Kearney’s webcomic Beauty and The Beast: a tale as new as time

It’s a treat to come across a new version that brings something different to an old tale

Say the words “fairy tale” in our general direction and you’ll have us spouting for hours about story derivations, historical accuracy, later deviation from source (honestly, we’re wild at a dinner party). So it’s a treat to come across a new version that brings something different to an old tale. Megan Kearney’s free webcomic Beauty and The Beast has been going since 2012 and starts things earlier on than most tellings, giving Belle’s family life and the love story a lot more context. There’s loads to read already, and Kearney updates it every Tuesday and Friday.
