Whuppity Stoorie

Whuppity Stoorie by John W. Stewig and Eric R. Marcus

A retelling of a Scottish fairy tale. The plot is recognizable as the same as Rumpelstiltskin even though just about every element in it is different from the one in pop culture. Starting with the main character being a woman whose husband ran off leaving her with a child.

Art is pleasant. Font's a bit odd, and some bits of Scottish dialect are kept on.
