Most people don’t know the real story of what happened when the prince leaned over to kiss Sleeping Beauty and break her enchanted spell. Previously, before the prince went to the castle he had a garlic bagel, leaving his breath disgusting and very fragrant. Once arriving in the room where Sleeping Beauty was taking her tiger snooze, the Prince leaned in for one of those magical true love kisses, but instead of his Princess’s eyes opening, she started coughing in her sleep and rolled over, away from the prince’s breath. Thinking quick on his feet, the Prince popped a Life Saver in his mouth to defeat the awful smell his breath was diffusing into the room. With cleaner and fresher breath, the Prince tried again for the kiss, and instead of the Princess coughing, she smiled and opened her eyes.  “Mmm, I’m so glad to have my very own Fresh Prince of my Kingdom,” giggled Sleeping Beauty.

“Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your long hair,” called out the Prince from his horse awaiting his Princess to peek her head out the window. As Rapunzel stuck her head out the window, she was in tears because the witch who had locked her up in the tower had cut off half of her hair and there was no way the Prince couldn’t climb up the window anymore. Not to worry though, the Prince popped a Life Saver in his mouth, then came up with the magical idea to build a latter out of  surrounding fallen tree branches. This magical idea was brought the Prince by the power of  Life Savers, and the Price climbed up the latter, brought his beautiful Princess down, and they all lived happily ever after.

Once upon a time, there was a little boy named Hansel and a little girl named Gretel. There step-mother didn’t like them very much so she was constantly sending them out into the woods until one day they got lost and discovered a house covered in candy! The children were thrilled, and started nibbling on the side of the house. Then, all of a sudden, out of the blue, came a witch out the door yelling at the two! “Why are you eating my house small children?” asked the witch, while admiring how plump the children were getting from all the candy they just ate. The witch licked her lips as she invited them inside and started heating up a kettle. The witch had the intention of eating the children. Hansel isn’t the smartest cookie of the bunch but thanks to Gretel, she realized something was fishy about the witch and sent out the Flavor the Life Saver signal.  Flavor, the superhero Life Saver, saw the signal and came flying over to the witch’s candy house. Hiding in the shadows, Flavor saw what the witch was doing and right as the witch was going to stick the children into her stew, Flavor pushed her into the kettle and saved the day for everyone—except the witch, who naturally never gets the happily ever after.

**I decided to write out the rest of my stories rather than illustrate them, like the previous two because it takes a very long time to illustrate my stories—and right now that is time that i don’t have. So hopefully I will illustrate them later.

How Our Favorite Superhero Was Created

I had a blast making this, and as previously portrayed, I love illustrating my stories even though they are VERY time consuming to do. I made this via, Illustrator, Photoshop, and Comic Life. Overall, I am very satisfied with this comic and my Cinderella one.

32. Story 1: A Cinderella Story

When we were assigned to tell stories this week, the first thing my mind jumped to were short stories, lyrics, and fairytales. I was inspired to do something with Cinderella because I’ve already done so much with Life Savers and pumpkins, and the experience of a Life Saver should be “magically”–which led me to the idea of doing something with Cinderella. I also thought it would be good because the ball is like a masquerade, which reminds me of Halloween.

This took me two days to draw and put together using Illustrator and Comic Life Deluxe.
PS: I know Cinderella’s face looks gross in the first frame, but I am too lazy to fix her eyes.
