It’s been 15 years since innocent, little Snow-White met the seven dwarfs, defeated her evil stepmother and married her prince charming. A lot has happened since then, but did Snow-White ever gain her ‘Happily Ever After’?

After the Snow is a sequel to the original Brothers Grimm fairy tale, Little Snow-White. This 6‐issue comic miniseries of dwarves at war, betrayal, magic and revenge shows readers that ‘Happily Ever After’ isn’t where the story ends.

REVIEWS:

"With AFTER THE SNOW, Wood and Maccanti set about building honest characters in a complicated world for the intriguing and fantastic start to this gripping story." - Ryan K Lindsay (NEGATIVE SPACE, BEAUTIFUL CANVAS)

"It was nice to see so many familiar faces and it was an even bigger treat to see a more grown-up version of these characters. The pacing of this issue was also done very nicely and the beats between scenes were near flawless. But, perhaps the best element of this issue was the art." - Patrick Wolf (COMIC BASTARDS)

"Disney has forever left its imprint on the story of Snow White and After The Snow cleverly weaves just enough into the story to make it familiar while still telling its own story which can be a struggle for comics based off such well known material. I'd recommend After The Snow to fairy tale fans, fans of high fantasy and anyone who has ever asked "and then what happened?". - Jane Finnsson (MAMA JANE)

"This first issue of a planned six issue series does what all first issues must: set the scene, meet the main players and grab the reader's interest enough to pick up the second issue. All boxes ticked." - Gary Chaloner (Publisher of the AUSTRALIAN COMICS JOURNAL)

Full review here

"After The Snow is absolutely going to be one to watch within the Australian comic scene, and it will gain international attention especially with this first issue. There are fairytale stories and alternate takes out there, but nothing quite like this and told in this way." - Marcey Papandrea (THE SUPER NETWORK)

Risks and challenges

With issue 1 completed and costs evaluated, we are extremely confident we can meet all our objectives. If there are any hiccups that delay the release, we'll make sure the pledgers are informed.

Our Xmas delivery pledge is for Australian residents only and also all rewards excluding the A4 Commissions and Blank Variant covers. Trev puts 100% into everything he illustrates and we wouldn't want him to rush these commissions.

Delivery of "Your Likeness in Issue 2" will be sometime during 2018. We are planning on releasing issues 2 and 3 next year.
