Fairy Tale Scrapbook
Everyone thinks of [fairy tales] in terms of poisoned apples and glass coffins, and forgets that they represent girls who walked into dark forests and remade them into their own reflections.

Spinning Wheels

Hmm, I want to make a connection between Sleeping Beauty’s spinning wheel, & the one from Rumpelstiltskin.

The Black Bull of Norroway is a graphic novel based off of a classic fairy tale. It features a strong heroine, Sibylla, and a diverse cast of characters that, we hope, will offer representation to a variety of groups. The comic is a collaborative work from artist-writer-sister team, Kit and Cat Seaton, who have finally come together for the sake of this work.

ABOUT THE STORY

Sibylla is just nine years old when the forest witch changes her life forever. A prophecy: she will be the bride the Black Bull of Norroway. In some ways, this is a blessing. As Sibylla grows she can avoid the advances of other boys, claiming a betrothal to a creature who may or may not exist. Sure, her life may be a life of waiting, but it is her own. Until the Bull comes to collect his due, and Sibylla discovers the prophecy wasn’t simply mincing words. The Bull is, quite literally, a bull.
This story follows Sibylla as she struggles to come to terms with her fate, a fate she’s not sure that she wants. Along the way, she must question the very nature of humanity itself. What makes a man? Is it blood and bone? Is it mercy, compassion? Or is it something else?
A tale of expectations and crushing reality, truth and illusion, The Black Bull of Norroway is more than just another fairy tale adaptation. It is a beautifully illustrated glimpse into the human condition.

ABOUT THE CREATORS

Kit and Cat Seaton are a team of sisters who strive to tell stories to illuminate the dark. Both have been devoted to their respective crafts from childhood, always harboring the ambition to draw, to write, to create art that possesses a breath of life.
At eight years age difference, it wasn’t until Kit returned from her first year of college that the two began to combine their talents. Cat writes the script, and Kit transforms words into images. They have tossed around many projects and now, after years of striving to find the right story, Kit and Cat are ready to begin sharing their vision with the world.

Our fundraising campaign will launch on Patreon on Oct. 1st. The webcomic will go live on Oct. 31st, update weekly, and be free to the public to read. Please follow us on Tumblr, Facebook, and Twitter @petramagpie to receive updates! We’re so excited to show you what we’ve made, and there is so more to come!
