Es war Keinmal – Never Upon a Time…

In December 2005, Beatrice Beckmann (Cyl) won the contest “Anthologist of 2005 – Build your book!” which was hosted by Schwarzer Turm as a way to get new ideas for projects. “Never Upon a Time” was the winner, and will be her debut as an editor.

Fairytales exist all over the world, and have for centuries. Again and again, they’re retold in new ways without losing any of their original attraction. In “Never Upon a Time”, twelve young manga artists go on a journey through the fairytale world, and the old stories are interpreted, from comedy to drama, in their very original way. You can admire, among others, “The Carnation”, “The Witch Baba Yaga”, and “The Frog Prince”.

Es war keinmal
The German Fairytale Anthology

208 pages, black and white, paperback
ISBN 3-9341167-30-6

Cover by Klaudia Penkwit / Mr_Booman

By Ri / Tara Starnegg
Tara begins the fairytale anthology with a funny parody of old and outdated features of fairytales.

That almost sounds like only the good people in fairytales are important.
But it’s evil that gets everything rolling.

What are you doing here?!

Tsk tsk tsk…
Am I not allowed to visit my step-daughter…?
