Hansel and Gretel

I haven't seen it, so I can't make any claims as to its quality, but I'd be lying if I said that I didn't think this South Korean film based on Hansel and Gretel didn't look really interesting (warning: some minor violent imagery in the below video).

An American remake is supposedly set for a 2011 release.

Bri-Chan's Princesses

You've probably seen her stuff elsewhere on the internet already, and Disney Princesses are arguably in a category all of their own which might be slightly removed from what I typically deal with, but I couldn't resist linking to Bri-Chan's (Brianna Garcia) deviant art page and the typically cheeky and amusingly iconoclastic images of the Disney fairytale princesses that she posts there. Enjoy!

No Spider-Man or Avengers Fairy Tales trades, it seems

It's sad to see that, despite the fact that C.B. Cebulski's X-Men Fairy Tales comic book miniseries was released in trade paperback form, the follow-ups Spider-Man Fairy Tales and Avengers Fairy Tales will not, meaning that the casual comic book consumer - or those that simply don't have great access to comic shops - will likely not get to experience them. Still, I'd advise having a look out for these series in online stores if you're interested, as the concept is still a very good one that often yielded some quite interesting results. Also, the series often featured artists you're not likely to see doing work in mainstream American comics too often, so was frequently a visual treat as well.

Edited to add: Ok, I'm an idiot. Apparently Spider-Man Fairy Tales has indeed been released as a TPB and I just somehow missed it. Still, it looks like there's going be at least quite some delay before the Avengers edition comes out.

Yet more 'The Path'

Just an update, the website for the LRRH-themed game The Path (due within a month) is now located at Just don't stray from the path on your way there, you hear me?
