Vasilisa Prekrasnaya

A short story, written and drawn by Alex Lewis.

vasilisa_prekrasnaya_by_alexlewis_dd1f9jd-preThe story of Vasilisa Prekrasnaya is a Russian fable, in which a girl is sent by her stepmother to work for a cannibalistic witch, Baba Yaga. In Russia, it is often associated with the traditional illustrations created by Ivan Bilibin. I have reset the story in modern day Russia, and turned the tale into a comic, evoking Bilibin’s drawings.


The comic will be published in: Modern Mythology
