Webcomic description

A tale as old as time... With a bit of a twist.

When Basil Digby steals a rose from a horrifying beast, he is presented with a demand: to send his eldest daughter to live in The Beast's castle as payment. Naturally, he declines. And- fearing what would happen if word got out- The Beast refuses to let him leave.

Whilst his daughters try to figure out what to do, Basil finds himself in a world of enchanted eggcups, magic mirrors and talking animals. And a beast, who may not be quite as beastly as he initially seems.

The Rose Thief is a retelling of Beauty and The Beast.

It's ok, the horse can't hear ya!
Yeah, The enchantress gets let off the hook a little too much in adaptations!
That's a good quote! XD And thank you!
Thanks, I had great fun drawing him XD
Hey guys, I thought I'd do a little post, seeing as this is related.

If you liked this comic, why not check out A Bargain Made, an illustrated story written by Lilbluebox? It's a retelling of Rumpelstiltskin, with a tough and clever protagonist. (Hey, it's about time someone in that story had some brains!) It's also set just a little before The Rose Thief, in the same universe.

Here's the link. Once again, thanks for reading, guys!
