Does everyone live happily ever after in fairy tales? Don’t believe everything you read, brother!

For generations, people believed the fairy tale realm is a place where good and evil are as different as black and white. The good citizens of those dark places know the truth, and the truth is now in print.

The Big Bad Goodnight throws a new light into the darkest corners of a world once sanitized by the Brothers Grimm. Those who dare to open its pages will learn the real, dirty, gritty reality of the a hard luck Wolf, a femme fatale with fairy wings, a small-time hoodlum named Rumplestiltskin, a hard-luck “delinquent” with a chance for redemption, a calculating serial killer dares to called himself Charming, and an unhinged psychopath named Goldilocks.

The Big Bad Goodnight will transform the way you view everything from enchanted frogs to gingerbread men. It’s a noir escapade in the tradition of Double Indemnity, The Lady from Shanghai, Cape Fear, Sin City, and of course… MAD Magazine. Pour yourself a stiff one, brother. It’s gonna be a bumpy ride.
